    Pc problem. DVD won't read movies, media player says it's blank, but file folder shows .bup .ifo and .vob files. Rip/reinstall found drivers of budgets and DVD drive. System restore did nothing. Still not playing videos. But does play music cds fine. I am using windows 8 and windows media player to try and view, and opening the folder to view the different type of files. I conferred with my tech friends, and they are as stumped as me. So, now I leave it in you guys/gals hands.

    Try downloading Free version of the VLC player as a test and see if the movies play on that.

    Also you can try a drm removal tool to convert your DVD or Blu-ray movies to other common diginal format video for watching on PC
