Switched To Intel Mac, Lost All Jam 6 Data.

Question

I just upgraded my old Mac G5 OS 10.5.8 to an 8 Core Intel machine OS 10.6.8.

 

All my Jam docs now show as Toast docs with no data.

 

any ideas?

Yup, Jam 6.0.3. Perhaps it is time to switch to Toast. I have toast 10.0.9, should I upgrade?

If Toast 10 doesn't load the content in those Jam docs then upgrading won't help. I don't expect Toast can read those properly. What I suggest is loading those on your older computer and saving them as .sd2f disc image files.

If you use & really like the functionalities in Jam, I say stay with it - especially for the cross-fade feature. Unlike subsequent versions of Toast I've tried, with Jam, cross-fades play back seamlessly without that annoying interuption of audio during the transition between tracks when you listen your mixes/projects using Jam itself as a player. FYI, I don't think Jam 6.0.3 will work beyond 10.6.8.

Re-reading your last posts, are you saying that you are on 10.6.8 and still can't open Jam files? If so, what happens when you try to launch Jam on it's own as an app? If it opens, then my suggestion is to locate one of your Jam files, press "Command I" to get info. and then look for the "Open with:" option in the mini window and change from opening with toast to Jam and apply to all files "like this one." That should do it for all your Jam files.

Meant to say "on 10.6.8 and Jam 6.0.3" in that last opening sentence.
