Toast 7.1.3 on Intel 10.6 Snow leopard

Question

Hello.

 

I am planning to buy an iMac running 10.6 and I was hoping if someone can tell me if Toast 7.1.3 will run on this new OS. I have several Toast Disc Images of my movies and would want to be able to open them on the new Mac. I have heard on many forums that Toast 10 has many bugs that will not allow many functions to work on 10.6 so I would much rather stay with 7.1.3 if possible.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

I know you are serious in thinking it's better to keep using out-of-date software than take a chance on the newest version, but it is time to change that thinking, at least with Toast.

 

Roxio just released Toast 10.0.6 that seems to have taken care of nearly all problems that came about because of Snow Leopard. So if Toast 10 got broke in several ways by Snow Leopard just think what that new version of QuickTime did to Toast 7? I know longer have Toast 7 on any Mac so I can't say if it will launch and if it does launch which parts work and don't work.

 

Your Toast disc images can be opened and used without any problem in Toast 10 which is nearly as superior to Toast 7 as your new Mac is to the Mac you used when you first bought to Toast 7. And the price is the same, too.

Thanks for that advice. It's just that when upgrading to a new Mac, there's all kinds of money having to be spent including new software that one must buy again (such as DiskWarrior) so if the primary software that made the original Disc Images still works, one tends to want to stick with it. I went into Roxio's documentation and they claim that 7.1.3 is considered as a universal application for Mac X although it is no longer supported.

 

As it is, it seems like a big job to get everything migrated over to the new iMac so the less new software having to be involved, the better. At some point, I would like to buy Toast 10 but if 7.1.3 will work, it's worth waiting for.

I recently upgraded from Toast 8 to Toast 10. 10 didn't work too well at first, especially the TiVo bits, but I did a checked for updates and got the latest version. It's working fine so far. The download was 400 MB, so you may want to select the time you download carefully.

 

Before I upgraded, Toast 8 was working fine with Snow Leopard. I would give Toast 7 a try before upgrading to Toast 10.

By all means give Toast 7.1.3 a try. The only thing that might not work is the audio and video encoding, presuming the application successfully launches. I expect the data and copying functions to work as well as they do in later versions.

 

If Toast 7 includes the Toast It and Mount It contextual menu those won't work. Neither will Deja Vu or Spin Doctor and possibly some of the other bundled apps.

I am running Toast 7.1.3 on Snow Leopard (MacBook Pro Intel Core Duo) and it's working. It didn't work at first, but after reading another thread and suggestion to delete any Xvid files in my Library>Quicktime folder, it worked.
