can't watch DVD burned with k3b

I have several .iso's saved onto my hard drive of movies that I've shrunk with DVDShrink (using windows). Using windows, I usually can burn the image, or mount the image and burn the audio and video.ts folders to a DVD and they work fine on my DVD player on my TV. Last night I tried burning one of them with k3b using the "burn DVD image" selection and it won't play on my TV!

I got no errors, and nothing to make me believe that the burning was anything but successful. I have no problem opening the burned DVD with Kaffeine and watching it there, but not on my TV.

So, my question is, what have I done wrong? Is there something special you have to do besides the obvious, "burn DVD image", or am I just missing something really silly?

You might want to check out the tutorial section, there are a few DVD guides listed, one in particular is the "DVD9 to DVD5 guide"

Figured it out - I was trying to burn the iso image and what I needed to do is mount the image and then burn the AUDIO.TS and VIDEO.TS folders using DVDVideo mode. Works like a charm.

Thanks to steel for the tutorial and cuiq for the post!
