I had forgotten that NeroVision Express could import VOB's.
Now, I will probably use Nero Recode to burn each of the movies to HDD, eliminating opening junk, credits, etc. (or use PgcEdit to do the same thing), and then import the resulting files into NeroVision Express, create the menus (I'll probably take some screen shots from the movies for the menu pictures) and burn to DVD+R DL.
Believe it or not, I've been doing all my burning to el-cheapo Memorex dual-layer disks and in the past 3 years have only burned 2 "coasters". They all play on my PC, my laptop, my "older-than-dirt" 5-DVD Panasonic DVD-CV52 changer, an even older Cyber-Home CH-DVD402 player that my wife brought into the marriage and all 4 of my kids' players. Some are badly scratched but all play flawlessly!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the help!!
