This is a file I downloaded, and I think .ts is some sort of container format for video (mplayer
is able to play it direct).
I am trying to archive it so I can remove it from my HD -- I don't really have enough room to
keep it around my HD

That would be great! Would I be able to append to the +R double layer disk that I have
written to with a previous version of growisofs?

I will take a look at this. I assume I will need to use a new disk to do this, and cannot append
the file to the double layer disk I have already partially written to using growisofs.
