    Toast Won't Complete Burn , Error 42 "too Many Files Open"

    Yes, I've found references to error 42 as part of the Mac OS, but mine is the first problem with Toast that I've seen. I got what I guess is the final word on this from Roxio support--that there is some conflict with Toast and other apps on my computer, and wishing me good luck! This is such a headache that I'm going to stop now, and use other DVD-maker software from now on. Thanks very much for trying to help--it's appreciated. Best wishes, Toasingit.

    I tried to burn 2 recordings to play consecutively, deeting the original source files after Toast began encoding. FAIL! Couldn't make a disc image, either--same error-42 too many files open.

    I tried 2 burns after quitting Finder. One (single program recording) burned successfully! The other, which was 2 programs meant to run consecutively on 1 DVD failed with the usual error42-too many files open. I'm going to try the failed burn again, this time deleting the source recordings after Toast has begun the encoding process.

    Thanks again for replying! I don't think there's another app holding the files when I try to burn. But I'll try it and quit Finder, and Preview, if possible. I drag the recording file into the drag 'n' drop area of Toast DVD authoring. I have also tried using the Toast "media" function and having it select the file from a folder. What is bizarre is that the burn or "save as disc image" commands get close to finishing via the progress bar and then it fails, so it seems Toast can start the burn task OK but not finish it.

    Thank you, point taken. So far I'm not having any luck with Roxio technical support, though. They seem to have a script and this weird issue isn't addressed anywhere...

    Yes, I tried the suggestions in that post. I think I described the conditions under which it occurs fairly clearly. I'm really sad that Roxio is selling Mac products and yet doesn't have a Mac tech person. It really leaves customers like myself with problem software that can't be made to work, and nowhere to go for advice.
  7. This is a problem that first appeared on my setup with Toast 14. All the multiplexing and encoding is done, and the burn begins. Then the burn stops, and this error message appears. I haven't a clue what to do. I like my Mac laptop too much to throw it across the room, but I'm tempted. Third party burn software from Wondershare and even old iDVD doesn't do this. I cut all other programs off via Activity Monitor when trying to use Toast 15, but it makes no difference. I've also had about 9 crashes since beginning to use 15.
  8. It happens when burning a video disk/DVD. I have had the error when burning several short videos to play in succession, as well as a single large 1 hour video. It has happened only with Toast, both v12 and now v14. Rebooting hasn't made a difference. Running OS 10.8.5. Toast will encode or multiplex, and begin the burn. Toward the end of the burn comes the error message, and the session must be cancelled. I turn off all other processes except Finder to give the max to Toast. The computer is a late 2010 Macbook Pro, 2.66 GHz processor, 16 GB memory. Have replaced the DVD internal player with a 1T harddrive. Startup harddrive is a 1T SSD.
  9. This issue is driving me nuts. I had it on Toast 12 suddenly, not knowing what caused it, and now after the upgrade to 14 here it is again! All I'm doing is dragging a file into the burn area, labelling the disk, normal in all ways, it then spends an hour encoding and then rejects the disk with this error message. What on earth is the matter with this thing? What files am I supposed to close?
