.mod files

You must convert the mod file to another format (.AVI or .MPG files) before burning them

Mov files are essentially Mpeg2 files (just what you need to create a standard DVD)
First of all I must say that I don't have any mod files to test with nor have I ever used windows burner.
But I know that a standard DVD needs a VOB file structure. as long as Windows burner doesn't deliver that, those DVDs won't play. (at least not on a standard player). What you need is some sort of authoring software (which creates the correct structure needed plus most of them are capable to let you create a menu)

You might want to check out the following programs:

DVD Flick

DVD Styler

Cucusoft Free DVD Author

DVDBuilder 4.02 b70

Those are all free programs..try them out and see what suits your needs.
