I am attempting to create a temp. partition with 11.0.4 and OSX Lion. Screen Shots below show the create partion (which I did first) then I chose mount (and get the error from 2nd screen shot) and then the third screen pops up and then nothing happens afterwards. When I create the partition it has the progress bar that it is happening, but nothing gets mounted at the end. I find a "myfile.toast" in the "Documents" folder but I cannot mount it to add files to it. Is this an OSX Lion bug?

More investigation:

If I choose "Mac OS Extended" nothing gets mounted just the "myfile.toast" gets created.

However

When I choose "Mac OS Standard" I get the file created and an image is mounted.

BUT

The mounted disc image is set to read only with no option for setting privileges.

The Create Temporary Partition feature is not working properly in Lion.
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 am having exactly the same problem. I bought toast 11 yesterday for the specific reason to make Hybrid disks for Flash based flipbooks.

Has anyone solved this problem yet?

I've been working on this issue with Roxio for the last several days.  Here's what I found:

The short story is Toast 11 cannot create a temporary partition so we have to do the job ourselves by using the Apple Disk Utility.app Once you have the partition created, drag your Mac files into the partition and then open Toast and continue your build. After an hour on the phone here are the steps that you need:

Issue

When creating a Custom Hybrid with shared data, Toast gives you an error "The
volume could not be found."
Mac OS X v10.3.x (Panther) changed the way that Toast 5 and Toast 6 handled disk
images. The workaround is to create the temporary partition (disc image) in Disk
utility and use it in Toast.

Resolution

1. Launch Apple's "Disk Utility", it is located in:
//Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility

2. At the top of the Disk Utility window, click on "New Image"

3. A "Save As:" box shows up. Name the disk image and select the Desktop as the
destination. Adjust the Size of the Disk Image so that it can fit all of your Mac Data
and ISO 9660 Data.

4. Select "Create" (this will mount a disc image on your desktop).

5. Close "Disk Utility."

6. Drag the Mac data into the "New Image" on your desktop.

7. Launch Toast and Select "Custom Hybrid"

8. Press the "Select Mac..." button and select the image that you just created

9. Press the "Select ISO..." button and drag in the same partition (if you want to share
 data).

It's a shame that the Roxio representative that I spoke with didn't know that there was a problem.  Given that Lion is a new operating system, I suppose I'd have to cut Roxio some slack, but they need to get this issue resolved with an update. I've created dozens of hybrid custom CD's using Toast 11 with the Snow Leopard operating system. Roxio needs to stop complaining that this is an Apple issue. It's their software.

OK, this is the answer to my prayers...partly. I'm trying to d the exact thing here, but instead of a CD I'm trying to create a USB stick that pretty much has the same functionality. Some of these steps seem a little antiquated, and there's no clear direction on burning disk images... iso or dmg?

When you click New Image in the Disk Utility you can choose any size you want. There is an option there for "Custom...". It saves using the .dmg extension. You can burn the disk image to disc (if it is a size that fits) using Disk Utility or using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. Select Disk Utility help for good info on creating and burning disk images.
