    I have been a Mac user since 1984, and a Toast user since Toast 5. I bought the latest and greatest, and it won't open. I have had my iMac checked, deleted and re-installed T17. And now I have contacted Support and will be receiving an email at some point... miss the days of talking to someone helpful right away. Has anyone else had this problem (2015 iMac, High Sierra 10.13.)? Here is the header for the lengthy error readout I get on trying to open Toast 17: Process: Toast Titanium [3746] Path: /Applications/Toast 17 Titanium/Toast Titanium.app/Contents/MacOS/Toast Titanium Identifier: com.roxio.Toast Version: 17 [5379] (17) Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: ???

Can attach the whole thing if anyone knows or cares... very exasperating...

    Jaikoz gets data from Musicbrainz, for instance. The same site also has SongKong, which might help out. See: http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/

    The only alternative to Gracenote is FreeDB.org, but I don’t think Toast can be changed to make use of that, but some stand-alone tagger applications may be able to set such. Does it work better if you use Toast’s Media Browser instead of drag-and-drop of the mounted disc through the Finder? That should help getting the information directly from iTunes.

    Yellow is Video, Red&White are Audio. The Y/R/W leads from the Roxio unit goes into the AV OUT jack of your VCR. Also make sure you have selected the AV OUT on the VCR unit. You could easily check this out by feeding you VCR output into you TV.

    Problem is that Jim has only just installed, and has run into the problem before he has had time to use the suite. It doesn't seem that a clean uninstall is likely to help him at this point, and there may be something wrong with the program as delivered.

    Well I got it installed... Tried with NO updates and VideoWave locks up at some point with the Motion Video Editor running. Tried with both Hardware and Software Rendering. No change. Added SP1 and tried again after a reboot. No change, VW locks up. Added SP2 and again, no change Did you hear from Support?

    I had this message come up in MY DVD on the old computer and that and other issues with Roxio had me update my 8 year old box. This still happens on the new machine at times and like the old, the only solution seems to be rebooting the computer. The specs on my new computer are: Intel Core i7-8700 Desktop Processor 6 Cores up to 4.6GHz Turbo LGA1151 300 Series 65W BX80684i78700 Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 DRAM 2666MHz (PC4-21300) C16 Memory Kit - Black Samsung 960 EVO Series - 500GB NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E500BW) I didn't get a video or sound card (yet), but see no reason why this causes problems as I have a pretty screaming machine now. The video (today's at least) is over an hour long and I am trying to burn a disc image prior to burning to DVD. Any ideas? I would rather get it to stop doing that, than to have to reboot and try again. Thanks.

    The black rectangle is a preview frame from the clip, and as such is also a button (select it for playback on the final disc). You can set which frame to use in the Edit window by double-clicking a clip in the main window, then using a slider (not very precise, I know), then Set Picture. It is probably black for you, as the first frame (default) of your clip is black (as it often is). Alternatively, there are some themes (menu templates) that have no preview frame, like Splash. The ‘My Movie’ text in the menu, is the menu title. You can edit that with Customize in the right side panel, then the Menus tab.

    File size is not that important, it is the time length that matters most. In what format is that video? A standard 4.3 GB DVD can only hold about 60 minutes of best quality video. Reduce the bitrate until the video will fit on the DVD. If you have a menu then you will have to consider that also

    You could ask 'Ton' for a refund. Even if past the 30 day window, growl a bit and they might respond. NXT 2 will work on Windows OS's prior to Win 8. NXT 3 seems to work fine on Win 8 & 10 even though it is not certified for those Operating Systems. Still, I always urge people to concentrate on the content of video! People do not load a disc into a player to look at the menu

    Sadly they really did simplify it to the point of being next to useless The things you cite are gone. Creator 2012 is one of the best but only a eBay item these days and you have to be careful that you get the Product Key with it!

    Nobody here recommends myDVD. It has been crippled with most useful features having been removed. It can only be used for the most simple projects. If you can revert back to the version that worked for you, I would recommend that. What was that version? If you can revert, you could try and get a refund on NXT 6

    Your source files work fine on your friend's machine, so there's nothing wrong with them. There is something wrong with your machine, and changing/reinstalling the software hasn't fixed it yet. Rather than trying an entire new Operating System [There be DRAGONS!!] I think you should work on getting your Windows 7 straight again. Windows 7 is a good, mature Operating System, and if a system develops a fault you should never hope to fix it by 'upgrading' your software. If I remember correctly, NXT2 only allows you 10 installs before your key expires (it doesn't care about Repairs) so don't go uninstalling/reinstalling unnecessarily. It would be useful for you to clean the machine up (logically) as Cdanteek suggested. This is worth the time it takes, and should be done regularly to keep the machine 'lean and clean.' The steps are Startup, Cleanup, Defrag, and Scan. - First check the programs which run when Windows starts, and disable any that aren't absolutely necessary. Run MSCONFIG.EXE and uncheck unnecessary programs in the Startup tab. Reboot Windows, and it will start without those things running. - Right-click on your hard drive in your File Explorer, and select Properties. Then click on Disk Cleanup, and in the box which appears, click Cleanup System Files. Windows will do some calculations, and when you give it the go-ahead will delete all the old garbage it indicates. I usually tick all the boxes and delete everything it allows. It's amazing how much there can be. -Once you've done that, go back to Properties (first picture) again and click Tools. Then click on Defragment now, and go do something else while the hard drive is defragmented. It might take hours but it will be worth it, and it won't take so long next time. -Now your system is lean and clean, you should make sure that this problem isn't caused by broken Windows files. Open a CMD window with Admin privileges, and type the command sfc /scannow <enter>. The system will scan its vital organs and replace any corrupted files. You might need your Windows 7 disc handy. Exit the CMD window when finished. If you do all the above things your system should be running properly. Please ask if you have difficulty following my instructions. Brendon

    You will have to join them in VideoWave (Edit Video - Advanced) first, then use the Export As or Prepare for Authoring to create a file that the new and improved (sarcasm) MyDVD can use. You can do this in Video Copy and Convert as well without the file creation first BUT only if you want a No Menu project. If you want a Menu project in VCC it will create a button for each clip added

    No, sorry. I don't think it can be done in this version. As you will have seen, the Express Labeler is very simplified and totally unsuitable for your job. The Roxio Label Creator will read and save the names of 56 tracks, but getting them all displayed so you can read 'em just isn't going to happen. (I got 62 in here) Some earlier Roxio labelers could do twin columns, but this one doesn't. [and NXT 6 doesn't even have labelers at this point] About the only way I can think of is to type your 56 track names into a word processor and put them into two columns. Then cut and paste, or take a screen shot of that page, trim the resulting JPG and drop it onto Roxio Label Creator, dimensioning it to fit the back of the CD case. That seems a lot of fluffing around and hard work, though. Regards, Brendon

    I just downloaded creator NXT pro 5.....had been using Roxi 2012 and upgraded hoping the quality of the DVDs would be less grainy. (Original feed was crystal clear). Trying to burn DVD with new product. Previously, I could click the DVD icon and without menues, click the burn button directly. Now I see "PREPARE FOR AUTHORING" and create video file. Have been searching help and can't find how to "burn" from this program. What am I missing?

    I need to create a DVD that auto plays and loops in a DVD player. I cant seem to figure it out with MyDVD. I have Roxio Creator NXT 5. What am I missing? It was easy enough with an old mac that I had and iDVD.

    Lets start by you taking off your cap locks and type in lower case. Look under Video for a DVD Author application that is what you need to do for it to work on a settop DVD player. Video Easily import photos or video into your PC Create home movies with professional transitions, motion menus and music Burn Video CDs, SVCDs or DVDs Play them back on your home DVD player

    Many of you have had issues with creating PhotoShows. It is broken and won;t be fixed. Some people have asked if there was another program similar to PhotoShow. I finally found one Corel's Fast Flicks. It will take both images (photos) and some videos ! It is cheap, easy and has pretty much everything PhotoShow has except for the web site to share the Shows. If you use social media, then that is not a problem. I use YouTube (up to about 15 minute shows) and have them unlisted so only those I that I send the link to can see the. Watch the Fast Flicks Fast Flick as a stand alone cost $15 to $20 depending on if it is on sale or comes included with Corel's Video Studio X7 or with Roxio's Creator NXT 3. There are only a few templates available but more are available. (example). I have not searched for others (sale page) Here are the specs. For some reason, the image is very small but I can read it: I can;'t find another image of this. Video input can be AVCHD, Mpg2, Mov and others. More to come.

    Thank you for your reply. I am perplexed however about Roxio/Corel's "honesty". I paid $25 for a One-Time Priority Support. The reply email I received from Ralf Jayrald Corel Customer Support Services asked me to post to this Toast 12 site. I didn't understand why but I so posted. I assumed I would have a dialog with a Roxio/Corel employee to discuss my issue/problem. Today when I checked the status on my Priority Support request I see it is marked Closed and I never had a reply from a Roxio employee, for which I paid $25. I wrote a reply to an email from their "support" asking about such but they have not replied. I see by my invoice that Roxio has an address in Funchal - Madeira, Portugal. I wonder about corporate "core competency" if the only reply to my $25 request is a well meaning guess from a fellow Toast-user. I naively hoped there would be a responsible employee that would know where metadata is hidden on my computer. Let the buyer beware for Roxio products.... regards

    This update/download 10 ver. 10.1.226 (Build : 112B62A, R03) does not offer any new features. If your current version is working without problems, I would leave well enough alone! cd

    After selecting Remove menu audio, right click the title button. Does it show Edit menu background as one of the options? Select that option. On the Timeline view of the newly opened window, click on the object in the Video track. Copy it and paste as many times such that the total duration of the video track is as long as the duration of the intended audio. Now, add the audio in the Music track. Then press the Back to menu button. Just an expanded version of what was already advised to you above.

    Yes, delete the orignal music; click to edit your menu background image/video and extend the length to the length of the music; add the music save. Click the menu duration and set that to the length of the music. There are several posts on how to do this; use the search function for more details.
