Default Very Simple Menu For Very Simple Man

In advance, I am very sorry for my Dumbness

I have been reading about differerent programs for days now but still do not understand how to do what I need and cannot search an answer

Very simply :

I have:

'RESCUE ME' series 1 episode 1 and episode 2
They are separate VIDEO_TS files burn't to my hard drive(by Shrink in File mode)
They each contain multiple VOB files etc as you would expect

I want to:

a.) Put them both on a DVD5 disc(no shrinking needed)
b.) Add a simple still background Menu Picture
c.) Add Button A and Button B on the Menu picture
d.) If you Press button A, it plays episode 1
e.) If you Press button B, it plays episode 2
f.) Button A is saying in text format "Play Episode 1"
g.) Button B is saying in text format "Play Episode 2"

That's it

Please help with any program free or payed for, but must VERY SIMPLY do as I asked, preferably with a GUIDE for me to follow

THANKYOU

Wouldn't NeroVision Express do all of what you want?

Can Dvd Remake Pro add menu? If so can someone refer a simple guide. As if it can create simple menu as quoted that would be interesting as I have been reading about this awesome program and would buy it.

Thanks for all the replies, I have been playing with DVD styler but cannot work out how to use it and the guide is not very good

I have never had Ner0 in any form so wouldn't really want to buy it just for the menu thing

I have looked at Titlewriter but cannot understand how to use it.

Dvd Remake Pro - Is it easy to use and is there a guide (Preferably Animated) also can I get a free Trial of it

I have worked out how to use DVD Styler to create a working menu structure and burn to hard drive as an iso file, but as my Episodes both contain 2 VOB files each, how do I combine them in to one or tell DVD Styler to include both VOB's for each episode, it only lets me add one VOB (ie HALF of the episode for each button)

I have VTS_01_1.VOB and VTS_01_2.VOB which is Episoode 1 and needs to play both when pushing button A

and VTS_02_1.VOB and VTS_02_2 which is Episode 2 and needs to play both when pushing button B

I can only get it to add the first VOB's of each set so it only plays half the EPISODES when pushing the button

I don't remember that when playing around with DVD Styler.

But here's a tip:

Get it to add a tiny blank VOB. Then, when your project is finished, replace the titles with VobBlanker. Easy!

Redo the titlemap afterwards with PgcEdit.

There are guides on the DVD Remake Pro site (when combining DVDs, DVD Remake Pro makes its own simple title menu).

Regards
