I am DLing a torrent at present. It is a little over 7 Gb. I have a DL burner. It seems the torrent has a VIDEO_TS folder that has all the files. Do I just burn that folder to a disk and it will play fine? seems the way, Am I missing something?

you burn DL and Single layer DVDs the same.

I would highly recommend that you close all programs and/or reboot before burning a DL disc due to the huge amount of data being transferred.

++++++++

1. exact procedure depends on which burning software you are using
2. you don't need to do anything with the files - they are 'ready to burn'

basically, after you download your video torrent - you need to burn them as a 'Data DVD'

in some programs, you would burn them as 'backup or copy' DVD - then use the VIDEO_TS as the source folder.

thats it- honest! its only a matter of different mouse clicks, depending on which software package you use.

hope this helps

Thanks, I see that I have Roxio on my new PC, so I should be fine. That is what I thought, but I wanted to check before I made a coaster.

You might find that you still end up with a coaster - some DL media brands are not very reliable and some burners will work better with one brand of blanks than others. Garbage in, garbage out kind of thing.

Well not the brand matters. The MID is most important thing.

MID?

Media ID. Different brands can be the same discs, just branded with a different logo/brand. That is, the brand (Fuji, for example) doesn't necessarily tell you what the disc actually is (Taiyo Yuden, for example).

There´s a nice tool for making clear the media-code, at least one I´m using:

That certainly was an eyebrow raiser.
