Sound problems on DVD playback. (Prem, DVD Lab, Nero)

    Here's the setup:

    Adobe Premiere 6.5 (on win2k)
    DVD Lab 1.1
    Nero (close to latest version)
    Sony DRU-500A burner
    DVD-RW and/or DVD+RW discs

    I took a VHS tape and ran it thru my MiniDV camcorder to capture it to
    disk. - no problems there. The .wav file is PCM, 48K type file. It
    sounds very good thru WinAmp.

    I took the captures file and imported it into Premiere and did a
    simple export thru Premiere's mpegencoder using the default NTSC 4x3
    High Quality settings (problably average 6k bitrate).

    The export seemed to go very well and I get two files. An m2v and
    I forget what the other one is a .wav, but I'm not sure.

    I use DVD-Lab to create the DVD Video image and use all defaults, no
    massaging of streams. It does it's work just fine.

    I use Nero to burn a ISO DVD-Video. All the defaults are used and the
    burn completes with no errors.

    When I put the DVD into a player, the picture is fine, but sounds like
    chipmunks. The same DVD plays and sounds just fine on a PC.

    Since all the sofware packages seem to be working, I'm not quite sure
    where to start. The bitrate is averaging 6k when I have DVD Labs
    checkout the disc. Should I change my .wav file to an ac3 format?

    Any help would be appreciated. I have created good DVD's in the past
    with this method, but am not sure what is happening here.

    I've found what is happening. There is a bug in DVD Lab 1.1 that messes
    up the PCM audio. When I upgraded to 1.3 it worked just fine.

    In the meantime, I was able to convert PCM to ac3 with Besweet, but
    there is no audio when I make a DVD with it.
