    I have used mac the ripper for a dvd that I want to store on my computer.
    It's huge and I don't want to shell out money for toast to burn it.
    So how do I just view it with my dvd plalyer.

    Shouldn't I just click on the folder video ts and open it and open DVD player and it should start when I press play?

    What am I doing wrong/

    Try opening DVD Player first, go to Open, then choose the VIDEO_TS folder you want.

    Assuming you are using the latest version of Tiger with DVD player 4.6.5...

    Launch DVD player, and from the file menu select "Open DVD media..." Navigate to your video TS folder, select it, and click choose.

    (edit: aloofman beat me to it)

    Well it says it "encountered a system error"

    could not detect a valid media file (-70001)

    Anyone know what that means???
    I am using OS 10.3.9

    DVD player 4.0

    I haven't had trouble before

    Did it rip okay with no errors? Some discs may seem to rip but not play properly. I think you'll have to try another viewer (VLC, like suggested above) to rule out software issues first. Try another disc too.

    Toast 7, Popcorn, DVD2Onev2... all of these will work.

    Popcorn is the cheapest.

    No matter how much you spend on DVD burning software/hardware, you still have to test it out every time. Sometimes you just get a bad disc or an encoding glitch and you have to do it again. And sometimes there seems to be no reason at all.
