Lightbulb Folder2Iso Version 1.3 - a tool to create an ISO file from a VIDEO_TS folder

Folder2Iso Version 1.3

If you have saved your output files from DVD Shrink or Nero Recode 2 in a DVD folder - a folder with subfolders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS and you want to convert that folder to an ISO and to be able to use ImgBurn for burning that ISO - you can now use the freeware tool 'Folder2Iso' to do this job.

There is no longer the need to redo the whole encoding process from scratch with DVD Shrink or Nero Recode 2 and let that program output an ISO.

The program can be downloaded here. The author of the program is mkisofs.

How to use the program:


  1. Just press Select Folder and add your folder that you want to make iso. ex : f:\movies\Matrix
  2. Select the output path and add a name like test.iso. Please note that you can not save it at the same path of the step 1 . (choose something like : f:\movies\Matrix.iso )
What is a DVD folder?

A DVD folder contains normally two subfolders; a VIDEO_TS and a AUDIO_TS folder. In the VIDEO_TS folder you find files such as these:




What's new in ver.1.3
  • Fixed: Process bug [100% cpu utilization]

What's new in ver.1.2
  • Fixed: Serius bug. If some files where over 2gb folder2iso didn't calculate correctly the folder dimenson.

What's new in ver.1.1
  • Added: Charsets support
  • Added: Button deactivation when the iso creation is in progress
  • Added: Size label looks better

What's new in ver.1.0
  • First public release...

Is this program any faster than the approximate 2 minutes it takes NERO Burning ROM to create an .ISO image file from a ripped DVD "package" residing on the hard drive?

The only real advantage is that you don't have to go thru all Nero menus.

Why would you not use ImgTools Classic - v 0.91.5 which has been around for years? This also has the great feature in that it honours your authoring layout without repacking the sectors. How about a sticky for coujo?

This forum is going to contain descriptions/links to other DVD tools as ImgTools Classic.

I'm working on this.

@rahzel - all I can tell you is I use ITC (which is really just a front end for mkisofs.exe) in conjunction with DVD Decrypter and have never had a bad result.

I just thought it funny that this "johnny come lately" prog comes along and gets so much prominence (a sticky with lots of fanfare!), when people like Derrow and r0lZ and many other senior memebers of the community recommend ITC.

Did you notice that the Authoring forum got a new name?

No, I didn't. But, as they say "what's in a name?" I can hardly keep track any more.
