    I am kind new to the whole DVD backing up scene. I have made about 7 successful burns with only 1 coaster so far, through following Scuba Steve guides (I thank you sir!!!)

    But my problem is that I messed up one step in DVD Shrink, where I did not select the proper backup target ( I did not select ISO Image File and burn with DVD Decrypter ) but instead left it as "Create DVD files: burn to folder" so now I have a whole bunch of files that I really do not know what to do with.

    I just backed up the DVD to my comp (which I usually do ok, when I back it up to ISO Image File, then I can just use DVD Decrypter to burn that to DVD+R) but now I am kinda lost as to how to burn those files/folder to a DVD+R.

    I hope there is a way to burn these files to a DVD+R to make a playable DVD.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    You can use just about any standard burning app like Nero or RecordNow to burn the VIDEO_TS folder as data Make sure to burn the whole folder with the files in it :)

    i have nero but i really don't know what I am doing with it. I just dragged the whole folder over, and tried to burn it that way. Do I need to select the files in the folder and drag them all over to the cd?

    Can someone provide a "play by play" of what I need to do?

    Thanks.
