That's a new one.
Bring the disk over to a Windows machine. Same thing?
Well I'll be darned. They all show up in Windows.
SO, next question. Being new to video editing, I am still rather low on the learning curve. It is not at all obvious how get these onto the Mac side. I dinked around a little running Windows under Bootcamp, but no deal. I presume I will need an app for this purpose since my version of CS lives in MacOS. I assume I just need to extricate the actual video files from the vob files, then I can stuff them anywhere I wish. If it matters in ease of transfer, I can run Windows native on Mac using BootCamp, or virtually under Fusion or Parallels. (Mostly I use Fusion when I succumb to Windows.) I can, of course, use a dedicated Windows box as well.

A LOT of things are not 'obvious' with Macs. That's why I hate using them. Since you have Bootcamp, you can use the following to covnert into a DV file. (Choose version 5.)
Ah, the old Mac vs Windows debate.
If I dinked around with system level stuff a lot, I'd probably prefer Windows as well, but those days are mostly behind me now.
Anyway, when I tried to open the Video_TS folder, I get
OpenDVD: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.
The files (vob, etc.) still show up in Video_TS and can be run in Windows (just like they could in Mac).
SO... I am open to further suggestions.
I do not have a suggestion, as I have no idea why Finder sees the VIDEO_TS folder as empty, when it obviously is not. Especially being a PC-only guy, Mac things are not my strength.
However, I encountered similar, but in reverse, some years ago. I was doing a bunch of work with Mac Projects, and fired up my MacDrive software (something that I had not needed for some time - but did this time). It installed with it launching, at bootup. I did not notice anything, until I stuck a PC DVD-Data (installation disc), into my multi-drive - BLANK! Checked that disc on another PC, and everything was there. Glad that I did that, before I fired off a nasty-gram to the software company. Did some research, and found that MacDrive, if loaded at bootup, would hook the multi-drive, and ONLY see a Mac disc - not any Windows/PC discs. OK, simple fix - delete MacDrive from loading at bootup.
Now, this is but a guess, but I would suspect that your Mac is seeing the problem DVD-Videos as "PC Only," for some unknown reason.
Wish that I had more to offer, but I would attempt to find out why the Mac is not seeing the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder. The IFO, BUP and VOB files are not platform-centric, so I cannot tell what the problem is.
Hi, I am fan of Premiere too because it is the best video editing packages I have been used. But it occasionally can not identify the Video_ts, I have encountered too, and then according to my Google out of the results, I think video format is the reason of the problem. By the way, here are 3 ways can help us directly convert folders, case 1, download a free software to help us, such as http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/dvd-folder-to-mp4.htmlhttp:// case 2, burn folder to disc, case 3: play folder with famous player, such as vlc.
