my laptop does not have a DVD driver at all. But I'd like to convert my video to a DVD format (e.g. Video_TS and Audio_TS). Is there a Virtual DVD writer out there that can pretend to be a DVD+R or DVD-R or DVD-RW drive?

possibly a duplicate of… -- but i think you're looking for DVD authoring software to create DVD-format files (in the VIDEO_TS and/or AUDIO_TS folders). real authoring software will not require a burner drive to create such files, but will either allow creating an ISO containing the authored DVD contents or simply writing the files to the hard-drive in the correct folders. – quack quixote Jun 12 '10 at 20:43

What video software are you using? Many offer the option to write to .iso instead of a real DVD drive, which will create an image with those folders that you can copy, burn on another computer, or mount in a virtual CD/DVD drive.
