You need the right kind of data for a vcd.

The data from vcd formatters usually contains preformatted sectors and 
a cue sheet file.

Writing a vcd should be possible with cdrdao (using SAO mode). 

Writing a svcd unly works with cdrdao if you can write it in SAO mode
and if your writer supports to write complex data in SAO mode.

If you need to write a svcd in RAW mode (e.g. because you use a Pioneer drive)
you are lost with cdrdao and need to use cdrecord. Cdrdao does not handle
cue sheet file based writing in RAW mode correctly.
