I've searched but I can't seem to find something that is specific to what I'm looking for. I need to create an ISO from a VIDEO_TS folder on my hard drive. How would I go about that?

I'm at a Windows machine at the moment so I can't check the exact options you need to pass it program growisofs can do what you want, I've used it before and it works great.

Here's an online man page for it, you can get this help document by typing man growisofs after installing it.

You need to consider that probably with the growisofs command you will create an ISO image yes, but will only contain the VIDEO_TS directory, once you burn that ISO image to a disc it won't play on a regular dvd player, since the AUDIO_TS directory will be missing.
What I would do is the next:

1. Install k3b ---- sudo apt-get install k3b
2. Open k3b and choose New Video DVD Project
3. Place all the files contained inside the original VIDEO_TS directory within the VIDEO_TS directory in k3b.
4. Burn the disc or create an ISO image, depending on your needs. I would strongly suggest that if you are going to burn the disc choose at maximum burning speed 4X, that way the resulting disc will not "jump" at the time that your are watching the video.

I don't know if Brasero or Gnomebaker are capable to do this, that's why I'm suggesting k3b.

Hope this helps,

Hi
I agree with MepisReign above. K3b is the way to go.

If you want to do the job from command line you need your VIDEO_TS directory and an empty AUDIO_TS directory inside a folder (named "DVD" or similar).
Then use command

genisoimage -dvd-video -v -o DVD.iso DVD

This will create an iso named DVD.iso from the DVD folder.

I've already done that. I'm wanting to make an ISO image to burn so I can burn the dvd without having to reauthor it since k3b will NOT burn it :( I always use k3b.

Brasero comes up with some stupid error message saying its missing a gstreamer plugin that is already installed so it has not been helpful either.

Are there any other burning programs I can try that burn dvd's?

Thanks, I'm assuming the last DVD in the code would be the DVD directory where the output iso would end up?

I've used xfburn many times for this task, and it has yet to fail on me:
Select new data composition
Add the video_ts and audio_ts
Burn

Nope
It's the name of the folder that holds your VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS directories.

Ok I'll give that a try. I have it already installed on the machine. Thanks.

Thanks for the help, looks like the IFO file is bad so I guess I'm stuck with reauthoring it :(
