iDVD question.... I think?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
A friend just gave me a DVD to copy from his video camera - it's one of the little ones. When I put it in my iMac, it plays just fine in iDVD, but when I open the DVD icon in the finder and try to copy the files to my hard drive, it show file types which the machine doesn't seem to understand (I get the standard "there is no default application for..... message). The file types are VIDEO_TS.BUP, VIDEO_TS.IFO, and VIDEO_TS.VOB .

How can it be that iDVD knows how to read the DVD when it's inserted, but the machine doesn't know how to read any of those file types? Sorry if this is a n00b question, but I've never tried to do this before. Thanks in advance!
