I think what you are saying is that ConvertXtoDVD will replace the existing menu with its own built in menu, which seems to be true. For other readers, you definitely can convert an entire DVD from NTSC to PAL (I have done that), with or without size reduction.

I have already tried this, and what I get is a continuous DVD with auto start, but no menu at all. Unless there is another option, it appears that the original menu gets deleted.
