    An Open Invitation to Roxio

    Roxio appears to have posted version 2.02 of Popcorn 2 to make it Leopard compatable. Roxio has not posted a message about this yet but it appears to be there under software updates.

    Just wondering if Roxio has an update on when we might see this update.

    7.1.2 Update Question

    Thanks for posting the Leopard update for Toast. While waiting for this update to be posted and communicating with Roxio, I was told that (a) Toast 7 was not going be be supported and ( the update would not address all functionality. Before installing the update, can you please advise what functionality, if any, will be lost? I don't want to install it until I know what I maylose in the process.

    Thanks. You have addressed my Toast 7 inquiry but what about Popcorn 2? Is the only solution to downgrade to 2.0?

    An Open Letter to Roxio

    Thanks for the clarification. Some time frame would be helpful too. As a follow-up to my original post, a $59.99 upgrade price to Toast 8 is pretty steep if the only reason one is upgrading is for Leopard compatibility. (This is almost half the price of Leopard.) Perhaps Roxio could offer a deeper discount for those who can provide a proof of purchase for Leopard. Obviously, a free patch is best. By the way, I use Elgato’s EyeTV so having Toast (which is well integrated with EyeTV) is pretty important and the fact that it is broken with Leopard is a source of aggravation. In my case, by the way, the only program I am having this type of issue with is Toast 7 and Popcorn 2.

    An Open Invitation to Roxio

    I am confused and looking for Roxio to go on record and clarify the status of Toast 7 and Popcorn 2 updates relative to Mac OS 10.5-Leopard. On these boards, you will find posts form Roxio to the effect that Toast 7 and Popcorn 2 will be updated for Leopard but they were addressing Toast 8 and Popcorn 3 first. Those latter programs were fixed a few weeks ago and as recently as last week Roxio advised me on the phone that updates for the older programs would be out soon. On Wednesday, however, I received the following from Roxio: A Roxio Agent has responded to your ticket! (#XXXXXX) Thank you for contacting Roxio Technical Support there are no plans on patching Toast 7 to be compatible with Leopard. You will need to upgrade to Toast 8. The Roxio Agent did not address Popcorn 2. If I need to upgrade to Popcorn 3 or Toast 8, then I will make a decision to do so. On the other hand, I do not want to upgrade only to find out the patch(es) are going to be released. I am not posting here to complain. I am posting here so Roxio tells us loyal customers (I previously upgraded to Popcorn 2 from 1 and to Toast 7 from 6) what the plans are so I can make an informed decision. I previously did not upgrade because the new features are not that important to me. The lack of Leopard compatibility, however, is another thing. I have read I can “downgrade” to Popcorn 2.0 which I suppose is an alternative but having the full story would certainly help decide what to do. I am posting this on the Popcorn 2 and Toast 7 Boards.

    PSP Update 2.80

    On July 27th, Sony released PSP firmware 2.80. According to the IGN website "Sony has reconfigured the Music, Picture and Video folders (likely in preparation for the arrival and implementation of the PlayStation 3) so that they are no longer inside the PSP folder -- now, all of your multimedia lives on the root folder level, with only your PSP save games and downloads left in the simplified PSP folder. ..The addition of a "Video" folder should be of interest to many who have cursed out the PSP's multimedia functions. Now, at last, you can simply drag your PSP videos into a proper Video folder, rather than the arcane "MP_ROOT/100MNV01/" structure that Sony used before. Better still, videos can be named whatever you want (previously, they had to have a special codename to be recognized by the PSP.) This change is very encouraging, but there still seems to be some frustration not worked out -- users are reporting that standard MP4 video works fine in the folder, but the more advanced AVC video format is not being recognized yet. We'll be investigating this set-up to see if there's a trick to using this folder and whether it can hold any type of PSP-compatible video." In light of the above, do the instructions Roxio includes with Toast and Popcorn still apply to where videos should be placed or can they now go in the new "Video" folder?

    Save Compressed Image

    So, if I understand you correctly, if I save it as Disc Image it will compress if first BEFORE saving it?

    Save Compressed Image

    Maybe this has been answered but I cannot find it. For me, the compression step (if the image file needs compression before burning) takes quite some time. If there is a failure burning the disk, then I have to start all over including compression. I would think it should be possible to compress the file and save the image before burning so if the burn step fails I can restart with the compressed image and not have to recompress. Is this possible and, if so, how is it done?
