I couldn't figure this out with 6 and still can't with 7.

How do you copy a CD with only one burner? It's either burn to disc, and then I do the swap thing back and forth between the original and a blank CD.

I never get the prompt to burn to the hard drive.

The way I do it is choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. When the disc image is done I eject the disc, insert blank media and choose the disc image using the Image File setting in the Copy window.
I'm just a fellow Toast-user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may provide. And do let me know if your issue gets solved. Cheers from Eugene, Oregon!

I hope I am understanding you correctly.  In Toast there is a tab that says "copy". Insert the cd or dvd that you want to copy and hit the record button. It's not essentially recording just copying the media, once that is done it will prompt your cd tray to eject. Then you put in the blank cd/dvd in and it will continue on and  duplicate the files onto the blank inserted cd/dvd.

Note that if you are doing a number of burns of the same dvd/cd make sure you input into the dialog box that comes up the exact number of copies you need.

Right, that's my intent and that's my whole point. I clicked the Copy button and was given (with no choice) the option to put in the original, eject, put in the blank, eject, put in the original, eject, put in the blank, and on...so nothing gets copied or burned. The process you describe doesn't work on my rig.

tsantee, thanks, it worked as you described. But none of this was in the manual and none of this was FAQ. At least, none that I could find. The manual describes it as garagona does.

Recommend changing the manual :)

From the Toast guide and online help built into the software. See bolded section. Seems clear to me.

Copying a CD or DVD
You can make a copy of non-protected data, audio and video CDs and DVDs.
To copy a CD or DVD:
1 Click the Copy tab at the top of the Toast window.
2 Click the Formats tab in the left drawer and choose CD/DVD Copy.
3 Choose any optional settings:
CD-TEXT: If your original is an audio CD, you can automatically retrieve album information and add CD-TEXT to the copy. To view this information, you will need an audio CD player that supports CD-TEXT.
Fit-to-DVD video compression: If your original is a DVD-Video that is too large to fit onto a standard 4.7 GB recordable DVD, selecting this option will compress it to fit on the copy. See Changing Copy Options.
4 Insert the original CD or DVD into your recorder.
Read From: If you have multiple CD or DVD drives on your computer, you can copy from one drive to the other. Click the pop-up to choose which drive to Read From and insert the original disc into that drive.
5 Click the red Record button and choose a recorder from the list and optional recording settings, such as "Number of Copies." Click Record to continue.
6 When prompted, insert a blank recordable CD or DVD.
Toast displays a progress bar and status information as it copies your disc.

If you only have one drive on your computer, Toast will copy all the contents of the original to a temporary file on your hard disk and then write it to the blank disc. The temporary file is deleted automatically when the copy is complete. You may need up to 15 GB of temporary free hard disk space depending on the type of disc you are copying.
