    Is it an audio CD or a data CD? Does it not show up in Finder's Sidebar or Disk Utility?

    If you can, please provide more information about
    • what exact Mac and what exact Mac OS X version you use
    • in which application this problem does occur

    It appears on the sidebar but no matter what I click in the maize of folders it doesn't play. I tried open it in Movist but it doesn't play. Before, it automatically started playing in some kind of movie player but I forgot the name.

    DVD Player perhaps?
    Is it a CD or DVD (video DVD perhaps)?
    Can you make a screenshot of the Finder window with all folders collapsed in List View (CMD+2) and attach it to your next post?

    That is a video/data DVD, the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folder indicate a video DVD, playable by DVD Player or VLC Player.
    The other files and folders indicate some additional data, but mainly for Windows. Have you looked inside the folder named "Mac" yet?

    And what exactly do you want to play? The video?

    Get VLC, MPlayerX or some other reasonably competent media player, then find then option to open VIDEO_TS. Then point it to the VIDEO_TS folder on the disc.
