Hi

I have couple of vcd's and thought I could contribute the movies @ geetham. But I don't have any software to convert/split those huge .dat files into .mpeg or someother format that won't consume lot of space. Also I believe one can't upload a huge file in any of the free web space provided. Can someone help me in this regard :think:

Thanks
Sathy

Thanks for the reply admin. The website you provided contains lot of information on various conversion format and utilities to download. Thanks for sharing. :D FYI. I use Win2k Pro. So I'm not familiar with Windows XP. :Ksp:
