burn a bin file?


I have downloaded a bin file and when I try to burn it with toast I get a message that says---CD-RomXA or audio tracks cannot be written to DVD.


I can play the movie using VLC with no problem.

Download vcdtoolsX and extract the MPEG from the BIN file. It'll either be MPEG-1 (if the original image was of a VCD) or MPEG-2 (SVCD).


The video track of a muxed MPEG-1 file is already DVD-compliant but you need to upsample the audio to 48kHz. If you set Toast's DVD preferences to never re-encode video you *should* be able to get it to perform just the necessary surgery on the audio but I've had very patchy results in the past, often out of sync.


If the original disc was an SVCD then both tracks will need to be converted by Toast if you want to burn as DVD.


If you pay the shareware fee for ffmpegX you can use the svcdvd function from the Tools tab which can convince some DVD players to accept an SVCD-compliant file as a DVD. Whether it can convince your specific player is a matter of trial and error I'm afraid.
