How can one make an DVD MP3 disc?

My brother's only means of listening to MP3s is with a DVD player. I've many spare DVD-Rs and would like to put them to use by making him DVD MP3 discs to listen to when we get together.

When I listen to MP3 or FLAC files I stick to using the software music player Foobar2000 (when on the PC) or a portable audio player (a Sansa Clip+) when away from the PC. But my brother, who recently moved out here and owns neither a computer or an MP3 player (and doesn't seem interested in buying either, I guess, because he's somewhat oldschool and isn't very tech savvy) who's been listening to the same music since his teens, would be happy if I could make him a compilation of my music for us to listen to when we get together. He owns a DVD player and (shit) speakers so this is his only means of listening to MP3 files.
I remembered the other day that I have many DVD-Rs I bought some years ago that, now that I own external HDDs and flash drives, don't have use for. So I figured I could use them to make him music DVDs consisting of music from my music collection that we can listen to when we hang out. His DVD player doesn't support data DVDs so I'll have to make him a music DVD that reads as a DVD. I'm sure there's software out there that allows this and I've spent a bit of time looking for software that does this—with no luck.
So: can someone recommend good (preferably freeware) software that allows this—preferably one that allows you to add sexy backgrounds and menus and such? I'd be happy to finally put these DVD-Rs to use. Also, if there's software has support for FLAC, that's a huge bonus as it won't require me to spend time converting a ton of FLAC files—99% of my music collection is in FLAC format—prior to making the music DVDs.
Help me MeFi, you're my only hope.
