IFO file reading & WIN & other converters

by Rick_In_Spokane / October 11, 2009 5:58 AM PDT

I have a 3 set disc set from Acme Educational (Vincent Versace - Black & White conversion using Photoshop). Here is the issue: No program on my Dell Inspiron 9300 will play/recognize the "IFO" files. They will play on my wife's Comgaq Presario because she has an older WIN Player.

Question 1: Is there a way to get an "IFO" file formate to work on either Windows Media Player 11 or QuickTime Pro?

Question 2: Is there a way to copy my wife's older WIN Player program file over to mine & have it work? I think this would be ethical since I'm not provided the program to another person? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Question 3: Which converter(s) would you recommend? I know of two - AVS & WINx Player, both around $50.

Question 4: Is there a decent free converter?

Look forward to the responses.

Much Thanks!

It also had some other files on a Video CD/DVD.

Did you try VLC PLAYER?

I am answering question 4. Yes, there are a lot of secure converters available on internet. You can search and get them easily.
