MP4 to DVD

Is there any way to do the opposite? Is there free software to convert my mp4 files to DVD viewable and then burn them onto DVD-RW?

"Ripping" a DVD or CD does not erase data from the disc. Instead, it reads the disc and creates a copy. You'll still be able to use the DVD in a standard player.

EDIT: More precisely, Handbrake reads the disc data and creates a single movie file, stripped of all the navigation menus. This file can then be loaded onto iPods, iPhones and other devices for playback.
