I've just bought Toast 9 having been using the Finder to burn CDs / DVD/s quite happily for years now, but I like the spanning capability and the cataloguing that Toast offers me. However having installed the software this morning I had a number of crashes, quite often with Toast just open and not actually burning DVDs/CDs. I am almost exclusively going to be burning back up data discs (I am a photographer). However I think I've noticed a correlation between Toast crashing and iTunes playing tracks through my external speakers. I can't find any reference to this in the forum and wondered if anyone else has experienced this?
I started this morning on 10.5.3 but on the advice of the support pages updated to 10.5.4 including all the other recommended software updates. This seemed to fix the problem but at the time I had plugged the speakers directly in to my iPod to play the music as I was having to do several restarts to install all the new software. It was when I started using iTunes to play my music that I kept having crashes, and again I quit iTunes burned several discs quite happily, before restarting and experiencing crashes again. I can't be absolutely sure but I think that it mainly happens when iTunes is changing tracks or just after.
Whilst logging in and typing this post (I am a slow typist!) I have left Toast open and iTunes closed and it hasn't crashed at all, but just before it crashed a number of times whilst I was playing all the shortest tracks in my iTunes library.
Any help appreciated as I can't get through the day without music.
