Yes. The first DVD disc reserves the movie menu of the source DVD, and the second DVD disc only contains the second half of the main movie. If you want to omit the movie menu, you can deselect the option "Keep menus when splitting a DVD-9 movie to two DVD-5 discs" in the "Preferences" window.
DVD designers have failed to profit from the lessons of previous media: computer software, Internet web pages, and even WAP phones. As DVD movie menu is becoming less and less usable, less attractive, so we have to take DVD menu design as seriously as web design. The first DVD movies were once done well because designers have not discovered the medium and so things were left simple. However, as DVD releases became more and more popular, the visual designers took control. So we must have fancy, animated and complex menus. Unfortunately, the menus themselves suffer badly from lack of standardization. Many DVDs are inconsistent, in some sections working in one way, in others working another way. There are some methods for designing the DVD menus. First, make important states explicit. There is no doubt that the main menu page must contain audio, video, language, and subscript settings on the main page, thus to make sure that users can find what they want. Second, speed up the transitions. Rapid response can improve the user experience. Next, more feedback provided can keep user informed of what has been selected and what is happening. Others are developing industry standards, user test, considering accessibility and providing more information. These are for reference, just give play to your potentials and find more. By the way, you can delete the menu by deselecting the item "Keep menus when splitting a DVD-9 movie to two DVD-5 discs" in the "Advanced Setup" window.
