Data DVD - Video DVD......what's the difference?

The title says it all really, can someone in the know tell me what the difference is between a data DVD and a video DVD. Now I am not talking in terms of what the discs can be played on or their relative uses with respect to data and video, more a question of exactly what the differences are in the resulting DVD discs.


As an example, if you have your video_ts folder with all of the appropriate files copied over from a DVD disc to your hard drive (not copyright protected or regionalised), what is then the difference between burning the files as a data DVD over a video DVD - is there some kind of file structure or format difference on the resulting disc?


Thanks

I don't think you have answered his "yes/no" question- in terms of the files being copied over there is no difference - unless I have missed the boat somewhere. David
