First of all Thanks for help!.
i need exact layout and file writing sequence on physical media like which file are added in which order.
Mean if the file System layout is written to disc first or data files are written first and on which sectors?
Any Help
The physical media information is what is present in the ECMA standards whose links you can find on the pages above. Complete list of ECMA standards

I could not find anything on VCD 2.0 but DVD formats should be covered in the links.
Difficult to answer this, only in India lol do we get these type of questions
what type of headers, data is  used to create a VCD 2.0/ mpeg as far as I know
writing sequence on physical media like which file are added in which order????
From the little understanding I do have the write writes from back to front adding a lead in and lead out using the ifo file from the vcd structure. So it writes the VCD first.
(Leadout is used as a separator between two sessions.)
Check this out as it kind of covers it from the great guys at video help.

How about a fully illistrated guide using Nero Expres
