Bad quality DVD when running DVD studio pro

English isn´t my native language, so i`ll probably have a few mistakes, sorry!
I`m having trouble with a DVD studio Pro project. My DVD consist on 10 tracks of about 4 minutes and three extras that summed up are about 20 minutes, 25 tops. The format Is HDV 720, 25p.
I exported raw from FCP, then into compressor to "DVD top qulity 90 minutes", and last through DVD studio PRO into an SD. In this last step qulity really goes down, and menus flicker when i watch he material in a DVD player (when I try simulate it looks just fine).
Any idea as if there is any chance of improving the quality?

Do you have motion menu? And what are viewing the final product on? A standalone DVD player, Blu-Ray player, or computer? You have to remember that DVD is standard def and the quality of the video and overall appearance will not compare to what a Blu-Ray would offer.
Also, your footage: is it progressive or interlaced? I would assume Progressive, but just to clarify. And your data rate was set at the default? Since it looks like you have only about 1 hour worth of content total, try increasing the bit-rate on the files and see if that will make a difference in the overall quality of the video.

Hi Jessica, thanks for answering!
On regard to your questions, the DVD has a motion Menu, (composed by an animation and 3 other screens) which looks pretty bad on the DVD player , as if a light would blink, i think this error is called flicker (in MAC its OK). The final product should be commercialized for DVD players.
The footage is progressive. With data rate do you refer to FCP or DCD studio pro? not sure what this is.
In regards to the bit-rate its set to top 7,5, 6,5 low since i want every DVD player to be able to reproduce t, but i could increase it, since the DVD is about 2,5GB after burn, although im afraid that some DVD players could have trouble with this, for what ia hgave red in other forums
