Question Help creating DVD and converting movie formats

question for anyone who can help:

I have clips that I took using a digital camera, except one problem is it's all in .MOV format. I obviously figured out Windows Movie Maker doesn't support it though I have no idea why not.

So my question is, what is a good alternative way and if possible free (though I doubt it) to convert these pesky .MOV files to WMV or whatever.

After that I would also like to be able to put them on a DVD along with menus and what not. Is there any type of program out there that does all that? (hopefully cheap :-)

so if anyone can help me in this department then much obliged. Thanks!

I have previously used Nero Vision to do things like this. Not Windows Movie Maker. I know that Nero Vision can take any format and burn them to DVD. It also includes a menu that you can customize. With music and animations and all that. I would try using Nero first before you convert them to try and use them with Movie Maker.

Well i have used Nero to burn several DVDs this way. All of my Transformers Gneneration 1, Mythbusters, DBZ, among others. So it does work.

This was just recommended to me and it works great, and very simple to use.

WinAvi
AVI to DVD in 60 minutes, WinAVI Video Converter free download now!

Can covert the .mov to .avi or .mpeg

(maybe other formats, I didn't bother trying)

I use NeroVision to burn non-DVD video files to DVD (takes a few hours to transcode/burn, but I jus tleave it on overnight). If you just wanna convert them, I recommend using JetAudio. It's a media player, but it also has a built-in audio/video converter =D. And it is completely free/no limit on conversion =).
