    You can make a Video DVD iso with iDVD or DVDSP and then add data to it. DVDs use the UDF filesystem, so none of the files can be bigger then 1gb and I think there is a 8 character limit for filenames.

    If you're using iDVD, go to the "Advanced" menu and select "Edit DVD-ROM Contents..."

    You can add folders and files to your DVD there. These will be available to Win & Mac PCs
