It did successfully burn my dvd, but the user interface is awful and it's missing some basic functionality.
If you have, for example, a folder of 10 TV episode files, you navigate to the folder to add them to DVD Maker, where they show up as 10 titles in a list ("Title 1," "Title 2," etc). DVD Maker automatically creates a DVD menu with 10 thumbnails -- except 10 don't fit on one screen at the default size, so thumbnails 5-10 are stacked on top of each other. You can move them around and resize them, but there's *nothing* displayed with a thumbnail that indicates which title it's for. Even if you open a thumbnail's "edit" mode, not a single piece of information showing which title or filename it points to. And of course that makes it pretty useless as a menu because imagine sticking a DVD in your player and being presented with a bunch of cryptic thumbnails with no other information. You can add text on the menu anywhere you want, so you could put a title below each thumbnail manually if you knew which was which, but you don't.
I ended up adding one title to the list at a time, manually creating a text block for each title as I added it (so I could keep track of which title it was) and formatting the text so it wasn't giant -- each time. If all the text blocks are created already you can click "format all text like this one" but that's useless because if you don't format each one as you add it, you have a jumble of giant overlapping blocks. I split up the titles onto 3 menu pages since that was marginally less hassle than resizing each thumbnail indivudually so they all fit on one page.
DVD Maker is worth about $7.99.
