Another thing to check is if the audio is 48KHz and not 44.1KHz. You could export just the audio from your NLE, import that into Encore, and replace the timeline audio with the new seperate file. Then do a "transcode now" to just the audio file.
You said your drive is close to full, is it getting full when transcoding? I suppose its possible that Encore "never gets to it" because the drive is full.
