Selecting Audio For Burning .mkv To Dvd?



I have an .mkv file that is dual audio (English and Japanese) that I'm trying to burn to DVD. I'm only interested in burning the file in English. I've attempted this a couple of times and failed each time, and instead end up with a talking unicorn that only speaks Japanese. I'm new to Roxio so I'm not sure what else I need to do to make what I'm trying to do happen.


What I've been doing: After loading the file into Toast, I click on the "Edit" tab. This pops up another window, and I select the "Text" tab where I can see a drop-down menu allowing me to choose between the two audios. I make sure that the English option is selected, I've even tried playing it while in Toast to be sure that's how it's reading it, and then I burn. Below are two screenshots of the menu option that I'm talking about (lower right-hand corner in both):

Not sure if there's an additional step somewhere or if I need to be looking under a different tab. Any help/insight into this would be greatly appreciated.


Operating system: Mac OS X, Ver. 10.7.4 (Lion)

Program: Toast 11 Titanium, Ver. 11.0.4

You did what I would have suggested. Apparently Toast isn't smart enough to select specific audio tracks with MPEG 4 videos. I know that feature works with MPEG 2 but I've never had an MPEG 4 video with multiple audio tracks to try out. With QuickTime 7 Pro it is easy to remove an audio track from a video prior to adding it to Toast. I don't suppose you have that, do you? It also might work with MPEG Streamclip (which is freeware). After opening the video in Streamclip choose the Demux... option to save the video separate from the audio streams. Then add just the video to Toast and it should ask you for the matching audio which you then would select from the files saved by Streamclip.
