    If there is only a single audio stream, then the only hope is that one audio is on the left and the other is on the right channel.
    Your media player might let you select a channel (or if you have a balance control).
    If they are on separate channels, it can be corrected using an audio editor (Audacity) - otherwise, you can't separate them out.

    this might sound stupid but when i play them through windows media player, i get both sound tracks
    when i play them through vlc (even with stereo) i only get the original sound track?

    so if i burn to dvd will i get the original track or both tracks?

    In VLC, Audio > Audio Track, is there one or two tracks offered?
    If there is only one, then confirm it by opening the file in MediaInfo to see if there are one or two streams.

    If you're familiar with VirtualDub, load the file and select an audio stream.
    Then set 'Video' > 'Direct stream copy' and save the file.

    If your not familiar, use Avidemux and it should tell you to pick one stream.
    When you save the file, remember to give it a full name, like myfile.avi, because it won't put in the extension automatically.
