    Just tried to burn a m4v file to DVD with Toast 12, 9 hours later still at 35%, on a Mac Pro.

    Worst piece of garbage I've ever used, anything else that might be of use ?

    This sounds more like a hardware problem than a software problem.
    When did you last use a lens cleaner on your drive? It builds up gunk even when unused.
    Toast used to be extremely tolerant of drive errors, it just took longer when it found them.

    It's doing the conversion first, its not even got as far as writing to the DVD drive yet.

    Use an app called burn. It's free. You won't get a pretty menu, but it's fast at converting. Problem with toast is that it only uses one core to convert while burn uses ffmpeg, which uses all your cores.
