You missed one option: -udf. Without it, it still makes the image in the mac dvd format. The command should be hdiutil makehybrid -udf -udf-volume-name DVDNAME -o ~/Desktop/filename.iso ~/Desktop

Should have told people to put the VIDEO_TS folder into a folder on the desktop named DVD then use the following command - hdiutil makehybrid -udf-volume-name DVDNAME -o ~/Desktop/DVD/filename.iso ~/Desktop/DVD That would prevent creating an ISO with the entire desktop in it, LOL

Using your technique on a Video_TS folder of 4.68 GB i get an ISO of 9.02 GB that won't fit on a double layer DVD of 8.5 GB. Any way to produce a DVD closer to the size of the original Video_TS folder?

For further clarification, usage of hdiutil is as follows:
Usage: hdiutil makehybrid -o \ \
\ specifies the source folder.
For complete help, type:
hdiutil makehybrid -h.

For further clarification, this is the usage of hdiutil: Usage: hdiutil makehybrid -o specifies the output .iso file. specifies the source folder. For additional info, type hdiutil makehybrid -help.

Please clarify that no other file or folder should be on Desktop, because that command copies everything on Desktop to the iso. Thanks.
