Default Freeware that will burn several ISO onto one DVD disk

Howdy!
I have already recieved a great amount of help from this forum on how to actually step by step make ISO files that will play on a DVD player.
And I have been told that in DVD styler you can CONVERT and burn several ISO files onto a DVD disk, and through great instructions have created several video clips onto one DVD disk using DVDstyler.
The question is: I have several video files ALREADY in ISO format that don't need converting but want to put several of them onto one disk. Is there a way to put them through say DVD styler, or DVD flick or some other software, and "stack" them onto one DVD disk?
I know DVDstyler will CONVERT and stack them together on one disk, but the files don't need converting..
I tried putting one ISO file into DVDstyler with another file and it asked me if I wanted to overwrite the existing ISO file.
Like I said earlier, they are already in ISO format, so don't need converting or overwriting..
Any thoughts appreciated..
Thanks

If you are referring to my instructions in this post I never said that. What I said in step 8 is "You can drag several videos if it's your intention to have more than one video on the same DVD" not "burn several ISO files onto a DVD disk". In case you didn't notice, there's a big difference between these two statements.

No. Neither program can do that. You should have decided upfront when you were creating the ISO that you wanted several videos in the same ISO. Now that you have made each video into a separate ISO there isn't any program that I know of which can burn more than one ISO to a single disk. I'm afraid you have to do it all over again - and by that I mean doing it the correct way this time.

nite hawk, you are confusing things.

There are several video file formats like MPEG, WMV, MP4, AVI, etc. But, ISO is not a video format.

ISO is an archive format of an optical disc (CD/DVD). And the optical disc can contain anything from photos, videos, music, anything.

In your quote above, in the first statement you write "several ISO files", and then in the second statement, you contradict yourself, and write "several video clips".

If you read the instructions carefully in the thread about DVDStyler, you will notice that we have told you that several ISO files cannot be written on a disc. Simply because ISO is not a video format, or a video file.

Whereas, we have told you that several video files can be put on a single video DVD, using DVDStyler.

Please read the posts thoroughly and carefully, in order to avoid any confusions like these.

Again, please read the posts in the DVDStyler thread carefully. You are in high confusion.

We never said that ISO files did not need conversion, or that several of them can be put on one disc. In fact, you had asked this particular question in the DVDStyler thread itself, if several ISO files can be put on one disc, and we had said NO.

We had however said that, there is no need to convert the videos when you include them in DVDStyler. They can be included straight away into DVDStyler, and it will automatically convert the videos to required format while making the video DVD.

I hope things are clear now.

I am defiantely confused.
Maybe it is a matter of the different terms being used that is causing the confusion.
I put several kids video clips that were in WMV format into DVDstyler and told it to convert and burn, which it did.
I now have ONE "DVD" disk with 3 different iso format "videos" on ONE disk which works fine.
I double checked the properties, and it is definately ISO format.
You have to select which one you want to watch,but it works, so yes I put more than one ISO file onto one disk through DVDstyler, starting out in WMV format.
What I am trying to do is take EXISTING iso files and put them on one disk, which I think you are saying cannot be done.

Don't know if this cleared the confusion, or made it worse!

This is only possible Nite Hawk if you treat the ISO as files, as you can copy many files, just like any other type of files, to a DVD.

If you treat the ISO file as an image of a DVD, you can only transfer ('burn') that image to another DVD, one to one.

The source that you quote about burning multiple ISO's to a DVD needs a pre-process. It likely retrieves multiple videos (in a VOB format) from the various ISO's, and move or merge them into one ISO, as a DVD image, for subsequent burning into one DVD.

The "DVD" is playable on the older DVD player / older TV, not just on the computer..

Yes it's playable if you burn the ISO image to a DVD. It is a video DVD, after all.

Yes, you are definitely confused.

Adding to that, you are not reading our posts carefully and thoroughly.

Once again:
ISO is not a video file.
ISO is not a video format.

Please read the above again and again, until it sets in your mind.

You wrote in your post that the kid video clips were in WMV format. What you did was input 3 WMV videos to DVDStyler. WMV IS NOT ISO format.

Then, how come you follow that sentence saying that you have a DVD disc with 3 different ISO formats. You are contradicting yourself in confusion.

You created a disc with 3 video files in WMV format. You did not create a disc with 3 ISO files.

The input you gave to DVDStyler were 3 video files in WMV format.

The output that DVDStyler gave was a single ISO file, which IS NOT a video file/format.

You are confusing the video formats with the ISO format, and they are not the same.

Please read the all content above again and again, and again. Try to understand it carefully.

If you are still in confusion, please ask.

You have the wrong idea. Yes, you input 3 WMV videos into DVDStyler but it doesn't output 3 ISO files. What it does is combine those 3 WMV videos into a single ISO. Sure, if you burn the ISO to a DVD and play it you will see 3 videos that you can choose from but it's still a single ISO.

nite hawk, I think your problem is you are not reading what we say carefully enough. Also, you are interjecting and mixing your own ideas into what we tell you.
