Default BS Player won't play files; only in a particular folder

Running Windows 8.1, BS Player 2.65. I recently transferred several movie files (various formats) to a Toshiba removable drive. After doing so, I copied the files on my drive to a friends removable drive.

Now the files in one particular folder on my Toshiba drive will not load in BS Player. I get no error and BS Player opens, but the video window won't open and no matter what I do the file won't load. It's as if I opened the program from the install directory.

The same files work fine from my friends hard drive (virtually the same path) and the other files on my Toshiba drive work fine as well, just not the files in one particular folder (and sub folders). I even deleted the folder and copied it back from my friends drive to no avail. These same files work fine using VLC, so I know the files aren't corrupt. Any help would be greatly appreciated...I'm stumped.

If you try to rename the folder, does Windows stop you with any message ?
If you can rename the folder, files do play ?

I have tried renaming the folder and Windows allows it, but it does not solve the problem.

It turns out that if you have a non-unicode character in your videos path, video does not open and seems closed. In my condition it was a Turkish character "İ" or "ı". However my region in my computer is United States. Changing the region of my pc to Turkey may also solve this issue (i did not try) but I just changed the folder names and videos are opening now.

I hope this might help some people.
Peace be with you
