    Ok I have the following programs, Toast Titanium 9, Quicktime Pro, IDVD. I have a movie thats in .mov and I want to burn it to dvd so when I put it in any NTSC dvd player it plays. The encoding is taking 5 hours in Roxio Toast. BTW the movie is 1 hour and 45 minutes.

    Please help.

    Is it not working or something? It'll take as long as it takes.

    Its taking this time because it needs to encode the the .mov file to a mpeg2 format. DVD disks all uses MPEG2.
    Your burning doesnt take long, its the encoding process.

    So lets say I want to make copies of my dvd, once it does it once does it need to be done over and over or should I just take the dvd that was made and use mac the ripper?

    I believe Toast has the option of choosing how many copies of a disk are made. Set it up, and let it run through the night.

    You can also save an image (from the File menu, I believe) which you can then use to produce more copies of the disk in the future.
