Re: HELP CONVERTING AND BURNING

Toast 7 is the only one of those that'll do the trick, though you may encounter johnny sync issue.

I'm on my kids' (G3) machine at the mo but from memory you need to go to Toast's Video tab and select DVD-Video. At the bottom of the options drawer you can select Custom or, er...something else. Select custom and at the next window opt to re-encode video never. IIRC you don't get an option to bang the MP2 audio up to 48 kHz, just AC3 or PCM.

In this case I'd go for AC3 but you could use the demuxed and upsampled M1V and MP2 files from the ffmpegX option earlier on if you prefer. As long as they're identically named (apart from the extension) and in the same directory, Toast will automatically associate them with each other.

I know it sounds a tad complicated but stick with it, we'll get Pop his DVD

Re: HELP CONVERTING AND BURNING

...if you go for the M1V + MP2 option, select PCM as the audio option in Toast. It's Toast's indescribably dumb way of signifying passthrough.

Re: HELP CONVERTING AND BURNING

...Choose to save as a disc image so you can check the results with DVD Player or VLC before blowing a blank. On (slightly inebriated) reflection, you may find that selecting PCM audio with your unmodified MPEG may also lead to a merely upsampled MP2 audio track but, as I said, I can't check this at this moment.

Re: DVD Burning(menus, chapters, etc)

in my experience, nero is a piece of sh@t! it is slow, the latest version doesn't allow you to set burn speed & 80% of the time has had problems loading or "analyzing" content or IF it does burn there have been freezing and/or aud/vid out of sync problems.
my P4, 1.4GHz, 384Mb RAM & less than 2 yr old lite-on burner should be adequate so i doubt it's my pc. i had an OEM bundled version which completely sucked. then was dumb enough to get a full retail version & it hasn't been much better. i rarely even try to use it unless i need to add menus/chapters (but it's rarely successful anyway).

Gear dvd & NTI dvd maker have worked for me w/o fail (for the same dvd's that nero had problems with). NTI could not be simpler to use & start to finish burns in 15 min's or less. (note: no menu adding capability though or either).

you can try the free dvd shrink of course & just use "no compression" (unless it's needed).
