    Um, I'm not sure the OP was actually talking about video DVDs.

    Toast is the heavyweight of Mac DVD burning. You could also try Disco, but that app has always struck me as more style than substance.

    If you want good and free then look at Simply Burns (I pretty much use this 100% of the time).

    I just downloaded Burn. Looks pretty cool. My little bro uses it and loves it.

    Apple's built in disc burning App (if you don't need menus, extras) or disc utility.

    Is there a free program that will put together MP4 clips and create a menu?

    Maybe it will and I just haven't been able to? I'm pretty new at DVD creation.

    Is Burn better than the built-in Mac OS burning software? I want something that will burn data reliably so that I don't waste discs. I am backing up files, not making DVDs that will play in a conventional DVD player.

    iDVD works for me, even though I've only used it a few times

    Toast Titanium isn't free, but it's the very best. It can also burn to Blu-Ray if you have capable drive.

    I've been using Verbatim DVD+R discs and Burn to record the discs. It has worked pretty well.
