[QUOTE=ChristineBCW;2668044]You can drag the disk’s VIDEO_TS folder to a Movie-Named folder on your Desktop (create this empty folder first - call it whatever you like - something like your movie’s name is perfect).
Once the VIDEO_TS folder is copied to that folder, open up the VIDEO_TS folder.
There’s a file called
That is the starting point for standard TV DVD players. Your Mac’s media software should ‘play’ that and display your original video, on-screen, just as if you were watching the disk.
(I usually set the FILE ASSOCIATION for the .IFO files to be my Media Player, by the way, so those start playing any saved-DVD-file set.)[/QUOTE]
Christine, thank you!
I was hopeful about your advice and followed it step-by-step, but there was still no change with my problem in the end. I guess I should mention what actually “happens” when I try to open the movie.
Okay, so I created the new, empty, folder on my desktop as you said. I dragged the VIDEO_TS folder into the empty folder. I then opened the VIDEO_TS folder, then double-clicked the VIDEO_TS.IFO. (By the way the “image” of this file is the dark gray screen-looking sort of image with “exec” written on it in neon green typewriter font â€” as if it’s an “execute” file, which of course never works on a Mac.) What happens then (and also has happened other times I’ve tried to open it prior to moving it to this new folder) is that a box comes up saying something to the effect that no application is known to be able to open this file type. I can’t see the exact verbiage anymore because since I specified it to open with DVD Player, now I can’t change it back to unspecified. If I manually tell it to open with DVD Player, a box comes up saying, “There was a problem opening the media. The media type is not supported.”
Thank you for trying to help me.
