I would like to be able to send a .toast image file to someone who does not have Toast. Is there a way to change a .toast image file to a .dmg image file? Or is there a way to mount a .toast image file without using Toast?
Thanks.

I know I've simply changed the .toast to .iso with a disc image I made of a video DVD and that worked fine. I suggest changing the extension to .dmg and see if that works with the computer that needs to mount the Toast image file. Roxio includes the Toast It contextual menu item that includes Mount It for mounting disc images in the Finder. Possibly you could send the Toastit.plugin to the other computer. It's in the User>Library>Contextual Menu Items folder.

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!

Thank you tsante!

I first wanted to try your suggestion on my iMac, so I did this:
1. Made a copy of the .toast file and put it in another folder.
2. Changed .toast to .dmg
3. Double-clicked the .dmg file, and it opened Toast, which mounted the file!
4. Quit Toast and unmounted the disk image.
5. Did a Get Info on the .dmg file, and even tho the file said .dmg, Get Info knew that it was really a .toast file.
6. Used the Get Info panel to change the Open With... to something else. There was an app called "DiskImageMounter.app" and I selected it.
7. Closed the Get Info panel, double-clicked the .dmg file, and it mounted the image!!!
8. Did a Find File for "DiskImageMounter.app" and found that it was in CoreServices which is part of an old Mac OS that I had squirreled away. It was NOT in my current Mac OS 10.5.6, but I figured that there must be something equivalent in the current OS that does the same thing.
9. I ZIPed Toast and the DiskImageMounter.app, and trashed the originals.
10. Double-clicked the .dmg file, and "something" mounted the image. Although the Get Info was still set to Open With "DiskImageMounter.app" I don't think that was what opened it.
