If you create an Extras folder (look under the File drop-down menu) and direct it to a folder on your hard drive, you can put any non-video files you want in there and it will burn as data onto your DVD.

If your viewer then browses the DVD (rather than watching it on a DVD player), he will be able to look at the files you've got in this folder.

I show you step by step how to do this as one of my Tips & Tricks in my DVD Architect Studio book on Amazon, if you're interested.

You need to go into DVDArchitect - view properties for the project..and use the setting parameter called the "extras" folder.
This will create a folder compartmentlizing whatever data files you want to incorporate on the authored final DVD. Essentially you can create a folder there with any name you want.

The important thing is to keep all miscellany data files away from the root directory of the DVD - that is where the video must reside by specification. Upto the final capacity of the DVD burn - you can bury inside any data files you like in a "named" folder or folders.

I realize this is an older post, but thought I would add to it for anybody else that comes across it. The “EXTRAS” configuration is a bit misleading – it does not include the EXTRAS folder on the disk, but includes the contents of the EXTRAS folder at the top level. If you really want an EXTRAS folder with stuff in it on the DVD, then you need to create an EXTRAS folder under the EXTRAS folder specified ( ./EXTRAS/EXTRAS ) with whatever you want included on the disk (including folders of stuff) in the lower folder. That will give you an /EXTRAS folder at the top level of the DVD in addition to the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders. If you don't use the folder within the specified folder, you end up with the contents of the folder you specified scattered all over the root directory of the DVD.

If you create an EXTRAS folder inside the specified EXTRAS folder you will then end up with a DVD where the top level consists of the following directories (which is what most people are trying to do)

Note there are a number of utilities such as WinRAR that can open an ISO file and let you see the directory structure before you burn to disk if you go the ISO route.
