[Bug 82307] Re: Can't copy VCD ".dat" files from CD to Hard Drive

Maybe you could look into the VCD image format and realize that it is
not a filesystem in the sense you are thinking of. The "files" you see
are merely references to actual data on the CD, and not meant to be
copied around like mpg files. Otherwise there wouldn't be a need for vcd
image tools (like vcdxrip and vcdimage).

As I believe I have said in previous comments on this very same bug
report. If you can play the VCD, and use vcdxrip (or similar tools),
then the kernel is reading the disk just fine. It does not, however,
have support for VCD formats (which is different than ISO-9660).

So your request requires a new feature, not a "fix". This "feature" will
not be implemented in Ubuntu at any point in time, unless some one goes
out implements it and submits it to the upstream kernel.
