You can always use virtualdub, which is free, to convert an .mpeg to uncompressed rgb.avi format and convert that to whatever format you like, such as .vcd. But you will need something that will convert to .vcd.

The rgb.avi is uncompressed, both audio and video, so it doesn't use any codecs at all. That is why most converters can handle it without any problem. Also it contains all the information that the original file had, so it suffers the least quality loss from being converted.
