Hi all,

I'm trying to convert my PAL TS folder to NTSC. I understand that I have to do that through the Media Browser. Unfortunately, when I go to the browser and drop down to the Title, it's locked, preventing me from dragging it into the Video window. I went to my Video_TS folder and unlocked the folder and changed permissions to allow Read & Write, and it still comes up as locked in Toast. Any ideas ? Or is there an easier way to convert formats in Toast ?

Thanks,

Andy

If it is locked because the source is encrypted with copy protection then Toast cannot do anything with it. Toast only works with unencrypted video sources.
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!

Thanks, it's not a commercial movie, however, and I'm pretty sure I've used it before. BTW, do I get a confirmation to Convert to NTSC after Compression of before ? I somehow found another Disc and Title in Media Browser after multiple tries and will try that.

PS. To me, Media Browser is poorly designed. It's difficult to tell where the "disc" are located. Would be nice to show a structure. Maybe it's changed in subsequent versions of Toast to become more clear.

The Media Browser has improved with each version of Toast. Toast 7 was the first use of the browser and it is pretty lame compared with the one in Toast 10. I received false lock icons with some discs in the past but it usually corrected itself by ejecting and reinserting the disc.
