You could use Handbrake for converting and use the system burn folder to out them on to a DVD for you. FREE as well

Or if you want to spend a few well earned $ i can recommend Amazon - Roxio Toast 9....

I still have this version and works wonders, but have read not so good reviews for the Toast 10

Toast 10 is fine, I wonder what the issues are?
There is also Burn, which is limited but free.

I'm just about to use handbrake to convert to MP4, and then right click the output MP4 file, and select burn, seeing as our DVD player accepts MP4 format, Im hoping to burn this output MP4 directly to DVD, and then play it on our standalone DVD player. Wish me luck.

I will of course post back my findings, on how easy or not this whole process was, as I too like many others, have looked into many of the software packages available to do this simple process, but all failed.

In my case, i am trying to put a 1hr 33min film onto a 4.7GB DVD disk.
