Can anyone suggest/recommend free/cheap software for creating a DVD with a menu? I want to make a DVD of our honeymoon videos and break it into sections with a menu. I already have software for actually burning the disc, I'm looking for something that'll let me build the package to burned.

I've used DVD Flick for just this purpose.

I've started looking at DVD software. Some free ones to consider (I'm assuming windows) are:

I'm sure there's plenty more.

The full Nero package is very easy to use and I've had good experiences with it.

but... depends on your version of cheap. –  Brian Jul 24 '09 at 15:47
    
I bought Nero 9 a few months ago from Fry's for $85 - $20 instant rebate - $45 mail-in rebate - $20 competitive upgrade (I had Nero 7) = basically sales tax on $65, or about $5 here in California. I'd say its DVD-making capabilities are pretty average, though, and it seems to want to insert a NERO splash screen with annoying soundtrack on your final DVD, so I wouldn't recommend it. –  Fred Hamilton Sep 25 '09 at 4:02

I am using Free Video Converter for a while. It is very easy to use, but has no DVD menu editing possibilities. And it's free!

Some few links on this forum: Best free AVI to DVD converter and How can I burn many movies to a video DVD. Another nice list, which I used to make a small evaluation is Video editing software.

It's not free, but I'd consider Adobe Premiere Elements. You can find it on-sale for ~$70; I've even seen it bundled with Photoshop Elements for $80. Besides Nero (see my comments on an earlier answer), it's all I've had experience with, but it certainly seems more powerful and professional than Nero.

BTW, I'm not trying to slam Nero - I use Nero Burning ROM quite a bit - but I was surprised how cheesy the DVD creator portion of it was.
