    Encoding Time

    Why is it that some movies take all night to encode to blu ray and others a few hours? even using the same format (.mov) and file sizes roughly the same.

    Blu Ray Problems With Toast 12

    Just burned a disk and up came a bad sector warning whilst verifying, guess all I can do now is get some different discs, I assume that most people don't have a problem burning movies to Blu Ray with Toast?

    Blu Ray Problems With Toast 12

    Thanks for the advice, when you say not to boost the encoding rate too high, I use the auto setting set at 'best' is this too high, if so what settings do you recommend, I don't really understand the encoding stuff. Thanks again for your help Colin

    Blu Ray Problems With Toast 12

    Hi, I have just purchased Toast 12 pro and using it with Maverick, when burning Blu Ray discs on to a Samsung writer with a .mov film file all seems to work well and Toast says it was successful, however when playing the film back on a blu ray player the film gets about half way through and then starts to freeze and skip, I have tried playing them on different players but get the same problem. Any one have any ideas? I am wondering if it is the blank discs but it is now getting expensive throwing so many of them away. Thanks for any help Colin

    Ever Wish You Hadn't Bought Toast 9 ?

    Oh good, as I have just thrown away another 5 dvds! On the last 2 burns they have got to about 98% before coming up with this error "the file vts 031 vob could not be accessed (data fork-39)" At least it makes a change from the usual crash.

    Ever Wish You Hadn't Bought Toast 9 ?

    I bought toast 9 to work with eyetv, When I add recorded programs with eyetv and then burn it sometimes crashes at the first phase, sometimes at the writing phase, I then have to reboot to get the dvd out. As it crashes at different parts of the process, I have no confidence that it will burn a dvd until the very end of the process.

    I do, It is costing me a fortune in wasted dvd,s Takes 3 or 4 goes to burn a disc using Eyetv even after the latest upgrade.
