regardless of where you're getting the reconstruction files from,
jigdo[-lite] will create a new DVD .iso image in your working
directory on the hard drive.  once that's done, then you'll have to
use your favourite DVD burning tool to make a physical DVD.  so you're
certainly free to use a DVD in the drive as the source for
reconstruction files.
