    Won't Burn

    I have a similar problem in that everytime Toast 15 converts an MKV or VOB file to the DVD standard it will not burn the DVD and gives me a read error. Toast 14 was working flawlessly and there has been no change to my OS. Both burners give me the same message each time and both work with every other burning program. My configuration is: - iMac 27" mid 2011 - 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i5 - 16 GB memory - 250 GB SSD - OSX El Capitan version 10.11.6

    Won't Burn

    Installed Toast 15 on an external boot drive after getting rid of everything Corel, Toast & Roxio. Toast 15 now working from the external boot drive. I will be using it from there for another week before installing it on my internal SSD. I also use another software to convert my mpg, mov, mkv, mp4 and avi files to NTSC VOB files before burning with Toast. This seems to work better for me.

    Toast 15 Not Responding On El Capitan

    Well I finally got Toast 15 to work this morning. I cloned my internal drive to an external Firewire drive, booted my iMac from the cloned drive, uninstalled and thoroughly removed anything with Corel, Toast, and Roxio from the drive. I then rebooted from the external drive and installed Toast 15 to it. It has now been working for the past 2 hours. I will watch it for another week before I attempt a clean install to the internal drive. If anything goes wrong I will update this post. BTW, I first used a video converting program to convert my mp4, MKV and avi files to an NTSC VOB file before using Toast 15 to convert, remux and burn them to a dvd. This combination is working so far. My configuration is: - 27" iMac Mid 2011 - 2.7 GZ Core i5 - 16 GB memory - 250 GB SSD Internal, 250 GB External - OSX El Capitan version 10.11.6

    Toast 15 Not Responding On El Capitan

    Yesterday I uninstalled all items Corel/Toast/Roxio and reinstalled Toast Titanium 14 which is now working perfectly. No Toast 15 for me until a fix is published.

    Toast 15 Not Responding On El Capitan

    Tried Express Burn today and it crashed while processing a .mpg file almost at the end. Toast 15 completed the re-encoding of the same file but crashed at the beginning of the burn. What a bummer. Need to go back to Toast 14 but I do not have the installation file and cannot get it from Roxio.

    Dual Drive Burning in Toast 10 Pro

    If the OP is asking if it's possible to burn 2 copies of one file at the same time with 2 burners without launching another copy of Toast, then the answer is no. There is another Mac program that will burn to multiple drives which I do not know if I can mention it here. Do a search on MacUpdate.com and I am sure you will find it.

    The drive reports an error

    Try a different brand of discs. Sounds as if the ones you are using now are causing that problem. I personally use Taiyo Yuden and/or Verbatim discs with never a problem.

    Burning Error

    Usually, whenever I see an error message like this, it is associated with a bad dvd-r disc. Either your writer does not like the brand or it could be a bad disc from the batch that you are using. I personally stick to 2 brands - Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Datalife Plus. Hope this helps.

    Burning Blu-ray

    Your system specs suggest that you do not have a BluRay burner/drive. You cannot burn Bluray discs with a regular DVD burner. Hope this helps.

    Drive Report Error

    That error code is usually associated with disc (media) problems. Try another brand of media (rewriteable) and see if that works.

    Disc Cover Keeps Quitting?

    I take it you are Disc Cover RE V 2.2 that came with Toast 10. I had actually bought the full program some years ago and it is now at V2.2.1. Check to see if there is an upgrade to the RE version (http://www.belightsoft.com/products/disccover/overview.php). My version works perfectly with Leopard.
  12. Got my e-mail with a downlaod link and Serial Number for the plug-in. Thanks for all the help, Ivanatrox. Am now a happy camper.
  13. My case is different. When I bought my copy, the free plugin was not included. It was added the day after I purchased the software. Thanks for the help.
  14. I am in a similar situation and have just PM'ed you my Order Number & Serial Number.
