You can try SMPlayer 0.6.7 (this version adds support for dvd menus):

It includes a MPlayer build with dvdnav support. 

You need to read the document dvdmenus.txt included in the package to enable 
the dvd menus in SMPlayer, as that feature is disabled by default (it's 
experimental and with known problems).

I didn't test it much on Windows, but I think it worked, even with iso files.
