  1. I've been using Toast since Version 4. Over that time, Toast automatically differentiates between PAL & NTSC formats before burning a disc, and readily converts PAL into NTSC (and I assume visa-versa). After spending considerable time setting up the disc prior to burning I've often receive the message" You are about to create a disc with mixed PAL and NTSC content. Are you sure you want to do this?" The answer is usually, YES I want to burn these files to DVD, but NO I do not want to create a disc with mixed content. Is there a way that TOAST can be set up to identify these PAL & NTSC formats (perhaps as part of the Editing and/or AU filtering process in the main window, or as part of the Convert Utillity) BEFORE one clicks the BURN button, such that incompatible files can be converted into one format or the other, thus saving the user a considerable amount of time in assembling incompatible files ? The application already does the conversions, but only after the user manually sorts through the batch of files to be burned trying to determine which files are PAL and which are NTSC, then assembling into batches prior to conversion and/or burning. (I have been unable to find and info on this in the User's Manual.) THANKS for any help you may be able to provide. If Toast doesn't already have this feature, perhaps it can be included in the next release of Toast. My system: iMac 2008, with OSX 10.10.5 & Toast 12 Titanium.
  2. I upgraded my version of Roxio Toast 11 Pro, (purchased about 06/04/2011) to the latest version 11.2 after much ado, but find now that I have lost the Pro features. Does the BluRay/HD Plug-in not cause the icon of the application to display an 'HD' over the icon? When my new so-called "upgraded" version of Toast 11.2 launches it does not open with the ASSISTANT window. Instead I immediately get the main application window. When I open the MENU "About Toast", I get a TSID number which has no bearing on my Registration Number for Toast Titanium Pro, which (if I recall correctly) used to come up in the "About Toast" Menu. It seems to me that what I have right now is a partially functional, standard version of Toast Titanium 11.2, while I paid for, and initially received, a VERY NICE working copy (on CD) of Roxio Toast 11 Pro. Any suggestions on how I might get my Assistants back (i.e. the Standard Opening Window for Toast 11), and how do I get a full working installation of the upgraded version of Toast 11 Pro? (Other than reverting back to previous versions of Toast.) THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

    Feeling Very Cheated By Toast 11

    I agre with xrats isb so far i have also found Roxio's infor mislerading on several occazsions. However once I got the drift of thier programs, I have very good success, and as stated by tsantee, Toast 11 Pro for $79.99 is a pretty good price. I've been using Toast 11Pro for a few years, and this is my 2nd upgrade. I wasn't aware that there was a 30 day refund when I bought Toast 10, so I ended up in xrat's predicament a few years back: the proud owner of Toast 10 Titanium and Toast 10 Pro Titanium. Better clarigfication in Roxio's web site would be helpful, since we were probably not the only 2 people to get burnt.

    Toast 11.2 Titanium Upgrade Does Not Install

    Thanks tsantee! I'll give that a try.
  5. I am running Mac OSX 10.9., and have Titanium 11.1 installed on my system: iMac 2.8 GHz with Intel Dual Core processor, 2008 edn. The Update Dowloader downloads the file but will not install giving me the error message, "The update is improperly signed." If I down load the file via the link which opens in the download windows and states: "If you encounter errors while updating, click here to download the latest version of the complete product installer," I get a ZIP file (containing "Toast Titanium.pkg) which will not install because it claims I have a version less than Toast 11.0.0.0 installed, OR I already have the latest version; neither of which is correct. BUT when I try to run Titanium 11.1, it gives me the update window, which again gives the initial error message, etc. etc. ANY HELP would be appreciated. THANKS. PS - What are the "Topic Tags"?

    Retrospect Express V5

    I have Retrospect Express v5 (made by Dantz)with the supplied update which I tried to install on my PowerMac G3 when I purchased my Maxtor 1 Touch Drive - the application came with the hard drive. The G3 is running Mac OS X 10.4.11. Problem is that the Mac won't boot, except in safe mode, and crashes during the regular boot process with the result that a small black rectangle appears on screen, and the system freezes.I have tried to use Retrospect repeatedly (4.1, 4.3, 4.5, 5, 6) since 1994, and have never had any luck running or installing the application, no matter what version I've bought, nor what Mac system it is running under. Right now any time I try to boot this drive it freezes and I have to do a safe boot - with the SHIFT key held down. How do I uninstall the software when there is no uninstaller supplied? THANKS. (PS _ Going to Dantz's help site, brought me here to Roxio - I don't know why) Thanks for any help you can provide.
