I have tried everything to play my DVD that contains two folders: Video_TS & AUDIO_TS. After searching I saw that players like VLC (Ubuntu and Windows) or PowerDVD (Windows) should be able to play it, however I have tried those and nothing works.

When I use VLC it throws an error saying "VLC is unable to open MRL on mapped drive". I have also tried converting the VOBs into AVIs, however the 3.5 GB VOBs end up as a 15 KB AVI that does not play.

So how do I get this DVD to play back properly?


Here's the VLC Error Log:

Is this a store-bought DVD or one you burnt yourself? Did you try File / Open Directory and selecting the VIDEO_TS folder in VLC? –  Karan Jan 16 '13 at 5:10
    
some burnt it but from another country . yop i 've tried it but no use –  Abdo Salem Jan 16 '13 at 18:33
    
Same error as before? Does the disc play in a standalone DVD player? Maybe it's just a bad burn... If you copy the VIDEO_TS folder to your PC and open the directory with VLC, does it play? If not, paste the full error log as mentioned here. –  Karan Jan 16 '13 at 18:39
    
well the log is too long and yes i have tried it but it doesn't work i ll post the log in an answer –  Abdo Salem Jan 16 '13 at 19:26
