No, even you are wrong.

While you can mount a VCD and you will be able to see the names of all
its files through 'ls' including AVSEQnn.DAT, but if you try to copy
that file it will not be copied correctly (even for non super VCDs).

'cp' will not complain and will actually copy the file, but it is a
corrupted mpeg file and will not play properly in any player.

To test this fact, you don't need to even try to copy, just try
playing the file /mnt/cdrom/mpegav/avseq01.dat in any linux software
and see.
