Converting .mov video to DVD format?

I have a .mov movie file that I'd like to burn to a DVD so it can be viewed in regular DVD players, but haven't been able to find the right software to do it.

I've used Nero burning ROM but it expects a VIDEO_TS directory with .bup .ifo .vob files ... do I need to convert the .mov into these files? If so, how?

I don't know of any that will go directly to DVD. And I certainly can't help you create a DVD out of .bup, .iof and such files. A long time ago I tried that and found it easier to use DVD creation software.

Thanks Rob, that software seems to do the trick and converts the .mov into the .vob files that go in the VIDEO_TS folder. Now I'm pretty sure I can just use the Nero Burning ROM with those files and create a DVD movie.
