    I have .dv files I want to write to a disc and then add the same movie in an mp4 as data. So the movie will play in the DVD player, but if I want that same movie into iTunes, I can just grab it off the dvd. I've been trying to find a way in toast 8, but cant get it to work.

    I've tried to create a dvd-video --> disc image. Then open up the disc image and grab the video_ts and audio folders and drag them back into toast under the data tab along with the mp4 clip. It will burn, but won't play back in any DVD player. The Video_Ts, audio_ts and mp4 file all show up on the dvd in the computer, but the DVD player won't play it.

    Any suggestions? Please help.

    I'm able to get it to work doing the following:
    1-drag .dv file into the content area under Video-->DVD-video
    2. Save as disc image
    3. Open disc image and copy video/audio_ts folders into content area of the Data-->DVD-Rom (UDF)
    4. Add the .mp4 file to this same area
    5. Burn disc

    This works, but I would think there would be a way to bypass the save as disc image just to create the video and audio folders.
