    Toast titanium pro 16 64 bit app update

    So are the developers going to actually update toast 16 pro so it is 64 bit compatable by the time the next Mac OS rolls out.....which is probably only 6 weeks or so away(July?) Why can’t Roxio tech support themselves just answer with a simple yes/no/we are on to it response to this question? How hard is it for one of them to maybe just ask one of the developers? A bit too hard,much to ask for coupled with/based on my recent non resolved case/ticket support dealings with tech support. Even if they could at least tell customers that “it’s in the pipeline?”...rather than leaving us in limbo like they are doing. J

    64 Bits Support Needed Soon !

    Hi, This morning as I was getting ready to burn my first M-Disc 50GB BD-DL Project I received a pop up warning about the disc catalog RE app needing upgrading by developer from 32 bit to 64 bit. I hope they will have toast titanium 16 Pro(apps bundle)for Mac OS X upgraded by time apple rolls out its next Big Mac OS X software upgrade.I think they will have to as Macsales.com/OWC obviously sell/manufacture really good LG mechanised M-Disc media blu-ray burners for Mac OS X(probably the only peice of M-Disc BD-DL+ burner hardware that is currently compatible,available for Mac OS X/toast 16 Pro for Mac) Thanks Jon

    64 Bits Support Needed Soon !

    I have got some good news regarding my experience with Roxio titanium pro 16 for mac and I hope this gives the developers a real incentive to make sure toast 16 pro is 64 bit compatable in about 3 months time co-inciding with apples next Mac OS X major upgrade. Would you beleive that this morning I successfully wrote and verified a 50GB M-Disc using toast 16 pro for mac...... Writing time @ 28 minutes Verification time @ 26 minutes WOW!! ? What makes things even more impressive is that not once did my fans come on! Not once....and I use temperature pro app on my toolbar and max temp reached would of only been in the low 60 degrees Celsius! I can play back the M-Disc BD-DL on my el,cheapo laser blu-ray,DVD media center player as well.I checked the disc on my Mac after burning and only issue I had was ejecting disc problem and I wasn’t going to run the risk of force eject/corruption so I had to ask Mac OS X Siri what to do and it said to shutdown then restart and I ejected it from desktop and it worked. So let’s hope my good experience this morning gives roxio/Corel incentive to be 64 bit compliant by the time Apple upgrades Mac OS X. Thanks Jon

    Roxio support insecure website warning

    Hi theoldarchiver, Ive just logged in to Roxie support forums on my iPad Pro and didn’t get any security warning this time.Yesterday on my Mac I was using latest Mac OS X safari browser...and a paid yearly current version trend internet security for Mac running in background(so that’s a bit of a worry as trend didn’t alert me to the security issue) I think it was safari browser and the browser had a red exclamation mark on it? Anyhow I have got some good news regarding my experience with Roxio titanium pro 16 for mac and I hope this gives the developers a real incentive to make sure toast 16 pro is 64 bit compatable in about 3 months time co-inciding with apples next Mac OS X major upgrade. Would you beleive that this morning I successfully wrote and verified a 50GB M-Disc using toast 16 pro for mac...... Writing time @ 28 minutes Verification time @ 26 minutes WOW!! ? What makes things even more impressive is that not once did my fans come on! Not once....and I use temperature pro app on my toolbar and max temp reached would of only been in the low 60 degrees Celsius!

    Mac Photos Application & Toast 16 Compatability

    I googled up “where photos files are stored on Mac OS X” and I found this. http://osxdaily.com/2017/02/23/where-photos-files-located-mac/#comments Im not sure yet as I haven tried but would this filepath also come up in titanium pro 16 browser/tree structure....better still with individual thumbnails so as to select/deselect copy drag to project area? Im not sure my way I have been doing it is the correct way.....ie:I made folders in finder for the photos I have in photos app to go in and it’s very tedious having split screen and selecting individual photo/video from photos app and dragging it across to relevant folder in finder.I then would just add these folders to the project area. So would that tedious task in essence mean...”copying?” And that shouldn’t affect what is left in my photos app? I think you can left click on individual photo/video in photos app and click “open in other app>titanium pro” as import? Would these files in the file path they are talking about in above link....would they be the “originals?” J

    Photos,videos in Mac OS X photos app

    I googled up “where photos files are stored on Mac OS X” and I found this. http://osxdaily.com/2017/02/23/where-photos-files-located-mac/#comments Im not sure yet as I haven tried but would this filepath they give in this article ~ also come up in titanium pro 16 browser/tree structure....better still with individual thumbnails so as to select/deselect photos you want then drag to project area? Im not sure my way I have been doing things in preparation for burning photos,videos files/data to an m-disc blu-Ray disc is the correct way... ie:I’ve made folders in finder for the photos I have/want in photos app to go in and it’s very tedious having split screen and selecting individual photo/video from photos app and dragging it across to relevant folder in finder.When finished such laborious task I then would just add these folders to the project area.At least when the screen split goes back to photos app you have the last photo you dragged across highlighted(some consolation for an unnecessary ^#!& amount of hard work....sigh!) So would that tedious task too in essence mean...”copying?” And that shouldn’t affect what is left in my photos app/project area? I think from what I can remember is you can left click on individual photo/video in photos app and click “open in other app>titanium pro” as import? You would be there until xmas 2019 at that rate as photos doesn’t allow “batch click,left click and copy all to toast”...with no folder too mind you. It would be nice instead to have a structured folder set up to go in toast so add the whole folder in one hit to project area which is why I hope the folders in finder way works. Would these files in the file path they are talking about on webpage in the above link....would they be the “originals?” J

    I have the Mercury Pro DVD/blu-ray player burner from OWC and they sent out the 2 blu-ray disc(Phillips) ones and I purchased and used roxio toast titanium pro 16 to burn a Blu-ray Disc and very briefly looked at the result on my laser set top dvd/blu-ray player and from what I saw it looked ok....it took ages to encode.....then burn...the dual fans on my Mac Pro were caning it full on during process but apple have built in shutdown mode in case of overheat and I use an app to monitor CPU...etc...I just leave the fan settings alone in the app just use it to monitor as its best to leave them at apple factory set. God knows what’s going to happen when I burn a m-disc BD 50GB disc....I think I will have to wait until winter time......but if you run time machine with time capsule switch off auto/TM backups and energy saver settings don’t let your Mac go to sleep at all don’t close laptop lid....apparently burning a 50 GB m-disc BD is system/resources intensive but as long as the fans are going then Apple said it will be ok.

    Toast 16 Pro

    Well Roxio titanium 16 Pro....I ain’t going to all the trouble of researching internet either so I can find a simple way to have all my photos in my photos app on my Mac appear in iPhoto’s app just for roxio/Mac OS X shithouse incompatibility sake/convenience so looks like a case of make folders in finder then click/drag drop individual photos/videos to those folders first then add those folders to project area of titanium pro blu-ray burner......and I’m using m-disc blu-ray 50GB disc and last thing I want to hear is “debates” now on here about longevity regarding data disc long term storage/back up solution. The blu-ray burner I bought supports m-disc which is the whole purpose of this exercise seeing as though iCloud is just pay regular ongoing $ amounts for data storage....Apple time capsule is ^#!& long term because of incorrect capacitors/Power with no vent to expel all the built up hot air inside which kills the hard disc....can you beleive that stupidity and they haven’t done any modifications homework on this before pumping out another crappy model.A guy in England has far more idea on how to modify so no “fry” he knows more about this than them knobheads at apple........ anyway for longetivity,data disc back up(photos,videos,mp3,docs...etc)...then m-disc is the go.I haven’t tried burning data m-disc yet using titanium pro 16 but bloody roxio could of helped sped that up by now so none of this click drop/drag photo video from photo app to folders I created in finder.......

    Toast Titanium Pro 16 Bugs / Issues!

    Not much evidence of support,solutions I see on this thread either. Lots of views.....not much coming by way in problem solving replies. Suggestions that purchasers can just go and seek a refund does not wash here as it’s the blu-ray plug in which we are all after that nobody else seems to be Mac OS X/Vendor co-herent with. Wish I could help but I’m battling to get any help for myself/my own ongoing unanswered questions. I’d like to ask a question here. The support at roxio/correl. 2 things. Firstly as a paying customer they dont respond in an acceptable and timely manner and when they do it is purely so frustrating you could literally scream as you would think they would take the time to first read your email so as to not ask you to have to repeat yourself over and over again......and still they have no idea....0 product knowledge with no technical problem solving experience(in my experience)whatsoever. I purchased toast titanium pro 16 for Mac OS X online $220 AUD and did not come readily with “Pro Apps” bundle so you have to get on the blower to tech support only to realise it’s a link there and then they send to you only to find that 1 in fact is only a trial period App....and no sign of any ”photomagico” app only aftershot 3 and painter essentials 5(trial) so when you look on roxio toast 16 pro bundle page interesting to see no mention at all of this bit of a rude shock. I think the CEO’S of these companies should face up to these issues instead of lamping us duped ones with appalling levels of support and palming us off to too hard basket forums where 520 views versus 3-4 replies none of which I’ve noticed really benefit the end user.

    Toast 16 Pro

    I recently purchased roxio toast titanium Pro 16(FOR MAC OSX)...and would of expected the developers of this software to know by now that Mac OS X users use photos app rather than iPhoto app. So when you connect devices via USB to/via iTunes all your photos,videos automatically get transferred(copied) to your photos app. So roxio how am I able to then burn photos and videos using your software seeing as though there is only an iPhoto folder in your apps folder, files tree/browser? No photos folder and when,if you do look for that folder and you find it guess what? You cannot access,view any individual photo,video files there and then in that photos folder using your apps folders/files tree,browser. Unbeleivable! And because your tech support had absolutely no knowledge,idea(solution!) to this experience shows me then Im left only with what other option? To contact apple support as though it should now wind up as their problem to have to solve while you people do nothing? So I guess I have the only available exhaustive task to left click on each individual photo/video in my photos app on my Mac that i wish to record to BD-R and click edit with roxio for it to appear in project window area? Ridiculous and to think roxio is probably plain oblivious to the fact majority of people use photos app on Mac OS X and not iPhotos anymore. Funny I dont see any of this topic yet to come up/be addressed in this forum and the tech support at roxio only send you out an automated sounding incorrect solution straight from their PDF manual which I already read.....neither of which assists at all.
