I don't think you can do this the way you want.  Burning the SVCD as SVCD will close the session.  You'll probably just have to put them on 2 cds.

Give this a try... burn the images as DATA.  Keep the session open.  Burn the MPG as SVCD.  I don't know for sure NERO will let you do this, but you can try.

So long as you have DVD player software you can do this on your PC with no problems.

I use POWER PRODUCER to crete VCD for DVD and PC.

I think he also wants to be able to play the DVD in a standalone dvd player.

i used nero and i added a folder called "pictures" to the cd that already has the svcd folders (ie Segment, svcd,mpeg) and it worked in my dvd player and computer.  but, the computer said that the cd only had 5 mb on it but it can read the whole thing (svcd = 500mb, pics = 5mb).  so it is only reading one session or something??  i'm not sure this will play in all dvd players, but it did in mine.  what'd you guys think?

Yep, Session-related.
