    how do I create a DVD-Video with data files?
    Hi all, if anyone has the answer It would be much appreciated. I have an image(iso) of a video dvd I wish to burn, but on the same DVD I need to add some folders with content accessible on a PC/mac. Is this possible ?

    thanks

    Perhaps you could try copying the iso content to a folder and then copying your other content to the same location, then use Toast to create a DVD. I'm not sure this would work but that you'd need a application like Toast to pull it off.

    Thanks, I do have toast but havn't tried it with that, I did however try this method on a PC with Nero. Selecting data DVD from the templates and then Copying the dvd video/audio folders to the disc along with the files I wanted to add, however before I hit burn it came up with a warning message saying dvd files would not play unless I selected the DVD video template. ( a template which doesnt have the freedom to add files).

    I think you need two separate DVDs there TBH.

    Rather than assume Toast has the same limit of Nero, try it. You can create disc image and not even waste a disc.

    I've done this before, but this is by memory, so I hope it works for you.
    I think I used the latest version of Toast.

    Mount the ISO with Disk Utility.
    Open Toast
    Select Video-TS.
    Select Create Disc
    You can drag the Video TS folder from your ISO to the disc.

    Add another folder in which you wish to add your additional content.
