Windows 7: Is there anything better than DVD Flick?

Is there anything better than DVD Flick?

Like to burn my own DVDs and the only thing I've tried so far is the free open sourced DVD Flick program. It's encoding as I type this. It's very slow. Start to finish took close to three hours for a two hour DVD. Haven't even burned my first DVD yet. Is there anything better? By that, I mean better encoding times, better menu choices?

I've been using Nero and there is a free copy to do basic burning of discs.
Here's the link Nero - Burning, ripping and copying - Nero BurnLite is Nero Kwik Burn!

Have you tried the inbuilt Windows 7 DVD Maker? I've used it to make slideshows & can't fault it. I know it is in windows pro x64. Start menu.

Yeah, I used the Windows 7 DVD maker and it worked great too. Probably will use it again. Just wished it had a few more options. Thought I'd take a look at some freeware dvd software. I wouldn't rule out purchasing software either such as Nero. I didn't even know Nero had some freeware. When I look at the Nero product page I'm overwhelmed by the number of choices there are. Nero 11, Platinum 11, Kwik Media, Video 11 and Burning Rom 11. If anyone with any Nero experience would chime in, I'd greatly appreciate any help in sorting out all these choices.

Well, I take back my comments about the Windows 7 DVD maker. One, the format was burned to 4:3 and not 16:9. The original source is 16:9 and worst of all, NO SOUND! Dammit! I guess the biggest kick in the pants is the amount of time one invests in such an endeavor only to find that they've made a mistake somewhere along the way! Sucks big time because it really appeared to be so simple to use.

Free? What I downloaded said free for 30 days then $4.99 for the DVD software which I guess isn't so bad.

Downloaded the program. Now, how do you create a Start Menu? i.e. "Play", "Chapters" on the Main Menu and a chapter Menu with screens for each chapter and a return to Main Menu button? Hard to get started. Seems pretty complex Roderunner!
