    It's more than just the presence of the files in a VIDEO_TS folder, if you want to be sure that the disc is playable on a standalone DVD video player. A disc burned by Windows built-in engine using the default settings will probably be playable on a PC, but video equipment firmware is much pickier.
    The disc has to be in UDF 1.02 format (or hybrid ISO9660/UDF 1.02 format for absolute compatibility with older players).
    The contents of the VIDEO_TS folder must be placed in a specific pre-defined (not-alphabetical) order, of which the aforementioned DVD burning programs are aware and will respect. Since the ISO standard is to burn data discs with the files in strict alphabetical order, you cannot achieve that unless your burning software is specifically doing a DVD video project.
    The only time I ever used a dedicated program (ImgBurn) to burn a DVD was when it was a ISO and they played on my players. You do need a program to create the DVD file format which I assume DVD Fick does.

    Edit: I just checked DVD Flick and the user manual states you can use DVD Flick to burn the VIDEO_TS folder to a disc. It includes ImgBurn.

    Nope. Windows has a built-in burning engine but it does not know about the structural constraints necessary for a DVD-Video compliant disc.

    You need an application that does - ImgBurn, CDBurnerXP, etc.
    I see.

    Since I'm already running DVD Flick I'll see if it's possible to use DVD Flick to burn the "Audio_TS and Video_TS" folders to DVD.

    You can just drag the folders to the DVD drive in windows file explorer but apps like image burn do a lot more. (Like verify and double layering)

    Thanks, but since I'm wanting to create a DVD that'll work in a DVD player I don't think I can just drag the Audio_TS and Video_TS folders to the DVD-R?

    Agreed, you need an app...

    I just tried burning the "Audio_TS" and the "Video_TS" folders by dragging them to the DVD-R and it burned the DVD, but when I inserted it into the DVD player to test it out it only displayed the two folders on the TV screen...

    I guess I must use an app...

    Another posted indicated that DVDFlick comes with ImgBurn, so you may already have it.
    If not, and you don't want to "install" anything, there are portable versions of ImgBurn and CDBurnerXP. Beware of unwanted stuff packaged with various ImgBurn installers.

    I'll suggest an app DVD Shrink. Use it to create a DVD-Video compliant ISO. Then just use Windows 10 to burn it. So you still only need one app. PLUS It will shrink video larger then 4GB back down so it can still fit on a single layer DVD

    As name implies, it also shrinks video larger then 4GB (which would otherwise require a Dual Layer DVD and capable burner) back down to fit on a single DVD
    > Create a parent folder that contains the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders. Point DVD Shrink to the parent folder
    > If larger then 4GB, do "Deep Analysis"
    > It will create an ISO image you can then simply burn with Windows 10

    I think it can also burn direct but needs Nero. I just create the ISO then burn it myself

    Are the folders named Audio_TS and Video_TS or AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS ?

    This sounded perfect for me so I searched for "ImgBurn" on my PC and nothing came up...

    How can I use DVDFlick to burn a DVD whose folders I've already created?

    I just did some checking and I found the "imgburn.exe" in the DVDFlick folder, however it seems that ImgBurn doesn't have an option for creating a DVD disc that'll work in a DVD player?
