Suggestions: Good Free DVD Player Program

#1

I had PowerDVD 6 which came with my old comp. Just got a new Vista comp from DELL and PowerDVD 6 no longer works because apparently it can only be used on my old Dell system…CD doesn’t load onto new system.:a

Tried PowerDVD8 but on trial version…don’t want to pay for it.

So what I need is a DVD player similar to PowerDVD 6 or 8…in that it can play Movies ripped from and stored on my hard drive.

Can anyone suggest a some free software that can do what PowerDVD 6 or 8 does?

Thanks in advance.

Tried it. However, it doesn’t play the movie on my hard drive like it would from a DVD.

What I mean is, you can’t select a scene from the main menu and go directly to it. All you can do is skip along the movie.

With PowerDVD, it plays a movie on your hard drive exactly like it would if you were watching it from a DVD…ie go directly to the main menu where you can select which scenes to skip to.

Other than that I like it. It’s not bad. Is there another program that does what I just described? Thanks.
