    Toast Disappears.

    Well, it took me long enough (work has been pretty taxing), but I have some more information. First, I have a section of the Toast crash report: Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001) Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x00010004 Thread 0 Crashed: 0 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90001f40 szone_calloc + 0xe4 1 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90002888 malloc_zone_calloc + 0xc4 2 libSystem.B.dylib 0x90003258 calloc + 0x4c Do you know what libSystem.B.dylib is?

    You are, in fact, right. I have it on good authority that Toast uses QT to decode the files into raw DV. Then Toast encodes it into MPEG 2 with a built in encoder. I just found out a little earlier today.

    Thanks, tsantee. I will try those things and get back to you. By the way, do you know how Toast and QT interact, especially during encoding?

    I have a friend with G5 Mac desktop with 10.3.9/QT 7.5 and Toast 7.1.3. For a long time now, he has been a happy camper with this set up. But about a month ago, Toast started disappearing during the encoding phase of burning a DVD. It just disappears then reappears, empty. I have run Applejack, Tech Tools Pro and Disk Warrior, as well as upgrade QT to 7.5 (from some 7.1 version, I believe) so far and that has helped. He now only has this problem when he tries to burn a disk with large files of mixed origin: specifically, for example, when he tries to burn a DVD made from a 600 meg .avi and a 600 meg .mpg. Toast always will encode the .avi, then disappear when it has to deal with the .mpg. What could be causing this, especially after such a long time (a couple of years, I believe) of happy DVD burning?
