Writing a VIDEO_TS folder to a DVD

If you are trying to back up a VIDEO_TS folder (legally obtained of course) to a DVD (or an .iso) then this can be achieved by using the command line tool hdiutil on the Apple Mac.

Open a terminal window and use the following command:

hdiutil makehybrid -udf -udf-volume-name -o .iso /path/to/parent/folder

1. Replace with the name of the DVD.
2. Replace as the file name for the generated ISO file.
3. /path/to/parent/folder should be changed to the parent folder of the VIDEO_TS folder not the VIDEO_TS folder itself.
