    Simply create an empty "AUDIO_TS" folder and burn both folders to a DVD with the burning tool of your choice.

    This should result in a DVD that most stand-alone players will recognise.

    Or if you happen to have a copy, use Toast's "Video_TS Folders" option to make it. That includes a built-in video compressor that will come into play if the size of the Video_TS folder to be burned exceeds the limits of a single layer burnable DVD.

    You actually have a pair of options (at least) without retrieving the original disk.

    One is to simply burn it to a double layer disk if your burner is capable (as most later ones are) since there is plenty of space on one for your project with no compression required, and the second is to burn it using Toast (and I am sure there are other compression options, but I have Toast and don't need to investigate other substitutes ;)) which will offer the option when preparing to burn to compress it enough to fit on a standard single layer disk.

    Yes toast will compress and burn your Video_ts folder just fine
    You may also want to try DVD2OneX. This will also compress and burn your Video_ts to a playable dvd.

    You might want to burn your movie to a DVD-R disk. they tend to be much more compatible with the typical home dvd player

    If you open the System Profiler (Apple menu at the top left of the screen-->About This Mac==>More Info button) and look at the Disc Burning listing at the left, it will show you the formats and disk types that your particular Mac will burn. If you see +R DL and/or -R DL then you are good to go.

    +R double layer disks are much more common than -R DL disks which I have rarely seen but make sure that your burner will support the specific type you might get.
