I'm not the best source for this, but I am almost positive that WAV files are not part of either the DVD spec or the HD DVD spec. They have to me converted into something else. The best thing to convert them into is AC3 streams, but I *think* that MP3 will also work.
You do not have to do any of the stuff I mentioned. I think MF5 will eventually create the merged (multiplexed) video you want. However, I believe that using the WAV file is triggering ULEAD to do a audio and maybe even a video conversion. This take can take hours and not result in great video. Doing the multiplexing outside of ULEAD gives you more control and means that you will have a compliant source file and ULEAD does not need to do any conversion. Unfortunately, it is also more work.
When you take your song selection from a CD, try creating a MP3 fiel instead of a WAV file. Then use VirtualDub or MPEG2Repair to join it with the video. Should be pretty easy.
