Creating iso from file

Hello experts

I was wondering if its possible to create an iso image using folders and not a disc. I have a movie in video_ts and audio_ts. I need to know if i can use those files to write to a dvd video disc instead of a dvd data disc that can be played in a dvd player or if i can save them to an iso that will read as a DVD video.

Nero 6 has an "imagedrive" feature.  Once you've created your ISO image with something can mount that image onto a virtual dvd drive in your control panel.  Get nero 6 and activate the imagedrive feature.

Also, you'll find that movies may even run smoother, because your reading it straight from disk.  Even copying runs faster using this method.

I understand that i can make an iso from the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS using MagicISO but do i need to format it be played as a DVD Video?

Don't worry about the last question but answer this one: Is there a program i can use to burn a video dvd with the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders?
Yes and here is a tutorial on how to do it

With Nero Vision you simply open nero vision, choose make dvd video point it to the files in video_ts and audio_ts folders, choose burn, then it encodes the video (if nessecasry) then it burns the dvd. Note this will only work with non-copyrighted material. Found another way with nero express ( works with nero 7 platinum not sure what other versions), when you first open nero express choose videos/pictures then choose dvd files (video_ts and audio_ts), then clcik next and start the burn.
