    Okay...I have a movie that came in two parts. The first half is a .Bin file, the second half is the actual .mpg. Now, I am trying to make them into a DVD using Toast. No problem, right? Select DVD, drag and drop the BIN and then the .MPG. Go to BURN and thus the encoding begins. It en codes the .Bin pretty fast and then moves on to the .MPG, which is a different story. It gets half was into the .Mpg encoding and doesn't move...at all. I have left it multiple times for 8 and 12 hour periods where it is just stuck encoding half way through the second file, the .Mpg. So...What can I do here? What does it exactly encode it to, and could I encode with another program to make the process faster? Like exporting it into a different type via Quicktime Pro? Anyone have any ideas???

    Can you open the mpg file in Quicktime Pro? MPG is a weird file. The audio and video are on the same track which could be the problem. QTPro can't even export mpg video and audio together in another file. Open the MPG in QTPro export as MP4 (you can use LAN settings or make your own if you want too). Then get an app like wiretap and record the audio in real time as you are playing back the mpg in QT. then open the audio file in QT, trim to as close as possible as the original mpg's time. Select all and then copy. Then open the MP4 file (delete the audio track if it has one) and click Add Scaled. Should make up for small inconsistencies in the length of audio to video as opposed to paste. Export as MP4 again (using same settings) and then import into Toast. You don't need the bin I don't think (I've never had one with an mpg).

    This did not seem to work...Does anyone else have any other simpler methods?
