Would you be able to tell me what I need to do to convert a PAL DVD to NTSC so I don't lose the menus that have already been created? I can't quite figure out how to do the conversion. Thank you!

You cannot.

All videos must be re-encoded. Not the same picture size, not the same number of pictures per second.

Some tools can change a video from PAL to NTSC, but I do not know any program that can do it from a DVD.

I should have been more clear. I have VIDEO_TS folders with .BUP, .IFO and .VOB files inside. These are all homemade DVDs of concerts that are ready to be burned. My problem is that most of these are already in PAL format. So I'm really just looking for a way to convert those files so I can burn them to watch in NTSC and not lose the menus. I am able to convert in the program I use to burn (Toast 10) but I lose the menus that way. Is there a way to do this?

No,

As I told you, I don't know any program to do that.

If you want a NTSC DVD from a PAL DVD, you have to extract each videos and pictures one by one, then convert them to NTSC and recreate a new NTSC DVD from scratch with a DVD authoring program like DVD Studio Pro and recreate each menus. Not simple.
