    You need DVD authoring software.

    Nero and Adobe Encore are good examples.

    Making a DVD that will play in a standalone player usually involves more than just burning/copying individual files. They are not usually done in the same way that you would burn data files to a CD-R or DVD-R, for example.

    DVD authoring software usually takes raw video files and authors them onto DVD-R's along with other important files that are critical to the DVD architecture.

    Often, DVD authoring software will perform the necessary conversion of the video files into the MPG2 format that DVD's use. They are incorporated into the DVD file structure in the form of VOB files.

    Only more recent versions of Nero include a DVD authoring element - mine's called Nero Vision.

    You can try the software DVD Slideshow Builder which is very popular now, many friends and I like it very much. It's very easy to create a customized DVD with photos and videos, and we can add music, transitions, and motion effects and make beautiful DVD menus. Also, we can create .mp4, .wmv, .avi, .3gp slideshows for our iPod, Zune and 3GP Cell Phones, Youtube .etc.

    You can download it free here
