I don't think nero will convert svcd to vcd but since i don't use nero I'm not sure. Here is a link to a site with lots of information on this. http://www.dvdrhelp.com/mpeg2tovcd.htm

Yes, original file will not be deleted unless you choose for it.
Quality-loss is huge !! You can see it if you play both versions in a software-player.

Use Tmpgenc and go to file>Mpeg tools
Then load your file and change the video type to video cd (it shd have been SVCD or Mpeg2).
Then press start and wait about 10 mins and then burn the file you created with nero or vcd easy.

then go SPAM your mum

i done stargate episode 3 season 7 with dav2avi or somat, got the video and audio file, then used that tmpeg thing, took about an hour, dropped from 700mb to 4ooodd, quality decreased badly,but i had on high quality, maybe i should set to highest quality, least it works tho!

use what JaVnI said, it's called the header trick, it tricks your dvd into thinking it's a vcd when it's really a svcd, it only takes a couple of minutes, but change the name of the output file or it will overwrite the original.

Here's the simple instructions follow them in this order.

Open tmpgenc go file>mpeg tools>simple multiplex.

Select the video input(mpeg) and the audio will fill out automaticaly.

Then select the type: MPEG 1 Video-CD.

Then change the name of the output file so it wont overwrite the original.

Press run, at the end you might get somthing like buffer underun errors ignore these.

You can now burn that file to cd which should play fine. :D
