Our lab's viral DNA (Herpesvirus) has us take several flasks of infected cells. Take S/N and spin down cell debris (1000 rpm ~5min) then take S/N (don't get any cell pellet) Spin at 12000 rpm for 2 hours. You get a little pellet (At least with herpes we do).Resuspend in a bit of buffer. Treat with SDS and Proteinase K. After that it is just a phenol chloroform extraction with ethanol precipitation. We do a lot of PCR from viral DNA and this method works for us. I don't have the protocol with me right now so this is kinda vague, but I hope that helps ya !
