Hi,
Apologies, this is a very basic question...
I have downloaded and mounted a Linux ISO (Mint 13 Maya Xfce) to create an installation DVD. The folders/file in the raw image are:

[.disk]
[boot]
[casper]
[install]
[isolinux]
[preseed]
md5sum.txt

This is not being read by my DVD drive when booting, and the BIOS boot order settings appear correct. Should there be an autorun.inf file or something else for the disc to initiate the installation? Thanks for any advice

Not in my opinion. You never stated "I created a DVD using the 'Create from image' and it still will not boot."

So I would like to know where you download the ISO image from and its name. There are many many mirrors and I could not possibly say that one particular ISO file is or isn't missing something.
Is it the correct one for your system i.e. 64 vs 32 bit
Did you check the md5sum to verify the integrity of the downloaded file.

In addition you really should run the current version i.e. 16.

Here is the documentation
