Toast 17 cannot burn rewritable DVDs and BDs

Recommended Posts

My configuration is as follows:

Toast 17 Titanium (with HD plugin)

macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 with supplemental update 2
MacBook Pro 13-inch, 2018 with touch bar (Intel Core i7 2,7 GHz; 16 GB RAM; 512GB SSD)

MATSHITA    BD-MLT   UJ-272        1.00        SATA on USB3
PIONEER       BD-RW    BDR-XD05   3.01        USB3

The problem is that Toast recognizes DVD+RW and BD-RE as blank but when I try to burn them, it says there is no free space... thereafter it shows 0 bytes free for all single layer DVDs and BDs respectively, even if there is no media in the burner, until you successful burn a DVD+R/DVD-R or a BD-R.

I can reproduce this issue at 100%.

I tested CD-RWs and they work as expected. I have not tested DVD-RW and DVD-RAM so far.

The customer support suggested me to do a clean install of Toast by deleting prefs, plists etc. but nothing changed.

Did any of you try to burn rewritable DVDs and BDs?

I use them just to do test burns... so I found out this issue only recently.

I've just installed the 17.1 update... the good news is that this annoying issue has been fixed.
