well then i think youve answered your own question...sparkle does NOT recognize VCD file formats. not on 68k anyway...the cpu power to process the format may simply be not enough.

If your Disc have a Autorun.inf file then this disc cannot be opened by MAC because this autorun file try to find the Windows Application to open the dat file.

You may use the PC such as Xing MPEG to open it.

I'm afraid that you are out of luck until you purchase a PowerMac...  There are three pieces of software that will play vCDs on PPCs, and none on 68k.  Do a search on Download.com...

Unless Apple ever rewrites QuickTime MPEG for 68k machines (HIGHLY UNLIKELY) I'm afraid that you will not be able to view vCDs.  However, a 68k machine can easily handle CD+G format (still images with music), so your Karaoke plans may not be all together lost...

I hope this answers your questions...
