How to access SVCD MPEG file

My brother has created a set of SVCD's. As my DVD player does not support (S)VCD, I'd like to join them on a single DVD.
However on my own PC (DVD burner) none of the MPG files on the VCD's can not be played.
On my wife's notebook (DVD reader/CD RW combo) the individual MPG files cannot be played (e.g. mediaplayer), but WinDVD does play each of the disks!
The error message when attempting the individual MPG files is (translated) about an unsupported structure.

How can I get TMPEGEnc to cope with these files?

I did something very similar only a few days ago and luckly i saved the link for the document that gave the instructions.  It doesnt use TMPEGEnc, but the other prog is still free.  Take a look at: http://nickyguides.digital-digest.com/vcd-2-divx.htm  The steps shown in the article are the full conversion from VCD to DivX but you can only do the bit using VCDGear and leave the file in MPEG format.

There are also plenty of helpful article links from that page, but also at: http://www.divx-digest.com/articles/index_english.html

Well, the conversion itself is probably not the problem, as long as the tools manage to open the files.
Earlier I managed to open *.dat files from VCDs, but these *.mpg's are causing trouble.

What results did you get from using VCDGear? Try copying the mpeg file to your hard drive and then renaming it to .dat and opening it with VCDGear.
