    Those are DVD files.

    You'll need DVD software on your PC to play them.

    you can just change the extension from .VOB to .MPG and it'll play in almost any media player.

    Try using VLC media player( http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ ).

    In VLC first click "File" then click "Open Directory", navigate to the folder the files are in, select it, and then click "OK". It should begin play from there.
