    I always use Canopus Procoder 2 to do it.
    Even on high power machines it takes a long time, and the results are only going to be to a certain quality, to the exact nature of what you are actually trying to do.
    It is far more complicated than most people first imagine, as you are taking.

    @BigDK, thanks also for the specifics, do you have or reccomend a particular guide that we don't know about in regards to this issue? Rather than linking to lengthy threads, it would be nice to refer others to a concise document.

    Cheers.

    I don't know of any guide, as I just worked my way through it.

    If you select the wizard at startup, you get an option to convert file to another format.
    Then select source of file, and the destination of the output.
    Then select format of the media such as DVD.
    Then select PAL/NTSC whichever way your converting it to.
    Then select type of file such as VOB to burn directly to DVD.
    Next select constant or variable bit rate, the latter takes longer but should give a better result.
    Next select max length of DVD in minutes.
    Optimize for quality.
    Then proceed to convert.

    When you do a large disk with lots of files on it, you may need to play about with what files you select to convert or you'll end up converting the wrong bit such as the adverts etc...
    I haven't used it for NTSC to PAL for about 2 years so can't remember exactly what to do, I now tend to use Procoder with DVD-Rebuilder.

    Hope this helps anyway.

    @BigDK, every little bit helps, now all we have to do is convince you to make a guide? ...lol.

    If I had money for every guide I meant to start and those I started and never finished, I'd be a very rich man by now!

    But I will try and do one.
