    Burning To Multiple Drives Problem

    This isn't too big of a problem, but when I'm using Toast to burn to multiple drives at the same time, it's not recognizing the 'Number of copies per drive' parameter anymore. I burn to three drives, and no matter what I put in the '# of copies per drive' box, it always burns three and then stops the session. It's no big deal, as I can just hit the Burn button again and make three more, but this used to work in earlier versions. Just wondering if anyone else had experienced this or had a workaround. Thanks.

    Error Code When Opening Toast

    I just reinstalled Toast, but I guess I should try trashing everything again, as you suggested. I also corresponded with someone at Roxio about this, and they suggested resetting my PRAM, which I meant to do this morning when turning on my computer, but I forgot. I'll try to remember to do that next time I restart my computer.

    Error Code When Opening Toast

    I recently started getting an error code whenever I open Toast. It's a Mac error that says, "The disc can’t be used because the disc drive is not supported (error code 0x80020025)" I'm running Lion, but it didn't start happening right away when I upgraded. Is anyone else experiencing this? It also happens sometimes when I try to mount Toast disc images.

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    Tried the High Def DVD again and had the same problem after the reinstall. Disappointing.

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    Well, I submitted a ticket to Roxio Support about this, and they said they were experiencing some problems with Lion and would soon be releasing an update. They suggested I uninstall and then reinstall Toast, as well. I did that, and then I got a message saying that a new revision of Toasy 11.0.4 was available, so I downloaded that. I'm going to try re-doing a High Definition DVD tomorrow and see what happens. Fingers crossed.

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    So, now that the 'Blu-ray on DVD' option seems to be screwing up as well, does anyone know of another program that would allow me to do that? Compressor doesn't seem to have that option. I did this many times with Toast 10, and I believe they all worked, so I was going to try it again with that, but I can't seem to find my HD/BD plugin for Toast 10. Can that co-exist with the HD/BD plugin for Toast 11, or did I have to delete it when I installed 11?

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    Glad to hear Compressor worked for you. I just created a 'High Definition DVD' and had the same problem with only one menu item playing. I didn't think that was a problem before, but maybe I just wasn't paying attention. I can always access all of the menu items using the disk image and Roxio Video Player, so that does suggest it is a problem with the menu creation. Quite disappointing. I hate to kick Toast to the curb, as I've been using it for years, but this is totally unacceptable. As I mentioned, I've tried these discs on four different players, so I don't think it's the players' fault.

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    There definitely is something going on with discs burned by Toast on many Blu-ray players. I burned my original discs under Snow Leopard, then tried again under Lion, both had the same problem, so that didn't seem to be the problem. Tried them on 4 different Blu-ray players, all returned the same problems, so it doesn't seem like it's just certain players. I tried creating the disc image, and then burning without first making a disc image. I eventually just stuck all the videos together and then created a Blu-ray in Compressor with each of the titles being a chapter, so the disc could be navigated that way. Just finished it tonight and it works well. My Blu-ray player also has a 24p function that can kick in and send a true 24p signal to my TV when the footage is 24p. My videos are in 24p , and when I tried the Toast-burned discs, the parts that I could watch looked horribly choppy, so I had to turn off that feature. Then they played fine. The Compressor-burned disc played perfectly in the 24p mode. As I said, the Toast-burned disc looked fine without the 24p mode turned on, so I don't really know what the particular advantage of that mode is. I just thought I'd mention it.

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    Well, that sure didn't work. Only the first two items worked on the disc I made without first saving it as a disc image. [sigh] This is very frustrating. I don't like creating these expensive Blu-ray coasters…

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    Hmm, that's interesting. I did in fact make a disc image, as I always do that so I can make future copies of the disc easily in the future, and I hate having failures while burning to disc. It would be a hassle to have to re-encode the videos each time, but if the disc worked, it'd be worth it. Of course, then I'd have to store the movies somewhere if I ever wanted to make another copy. They're ProRes files, and they total about 1.5 hours, so that's a lot of disk space, which is another reason I like to save disc images instead. Oh well, like I said, it'd be worth it if it worked! Weird that Toast would behave that way. I used my last blank Blu-ray disc, so I'll have to order some more and try it this way. Thanks for the tip! I'll let you know if this works for me. PS - What do you think would happen if you created a disc image from one of your successfully created Blu-ray discs? Would Toast then be able to make a working copy from that, do you think? Have you tried that?

    Blu-Ray Disc Menu Not Functioning

    I just created a Blu-ray disc with eight separate movies on it. Encoded and burned without a hitch, but when I try to play it, only the first three items work. I can select the others and hit 'Play' but then the screen goes black and nothing happens. I have tried this disc on four different Blu-ray players, and all are exhibiting the same problem. Does anyone have any insight on what might be causing this? I apologize if this has been addressed in a previous topic, but I didn't find it when I searched. Thanks. mark

    Problem with .m2t durations

    I was wondering if it was the 60i myself, as I'm doing this for someone else, and I always shoot 30p, so I hadn't noticed the problem previously. I'm sure I did a capture using DVHSCap a few days ago with the same tapes and got the correct duration, though. I even burned a Blu-ray disc, but I had transcoded the footage to AIC and deinterlaced it, but the guy I was doing it for didn't like the deinterlaced look. Unfortunately, I had deleted the .m2t files, thinking I was done with them, and now I can't get DVHSCap to capture the right length files. I tried AVCVideoCap, too, and had the same problem with duration. Is there a reason you use it instead of DVHSCap? I just captured the tapes again using FCE and am encoding the Blu-ray disc right now, so I'll see if that works. I'll also try demultiplexing and see if that would work. Thanks for the ideas.

    Problem with .m2t durations

    I'm having some trouble with capturing footage off of my Canon HV30. I'm using DVHSCap to capture the raw .m2t stream. That seems to work fine and dandy. The tape is about one hour long, but the resulting file is reported as being 1 hour and 27 minutes by Toast. Strange. I just went on the assumption that the duration was being misreported, so I went ahead and created a Blu-ray disc with two one-hour tapes on it. Toast created a 35GB file, as it apparently really believed each tape was about an hour and a half instead of an hour each. I guess this might be a problem with DVHSCap, but I've used it before and the resulting file has been the correct duration, so I'm not sure what is going on. I have ClipWrap, which 'rewraps' the .m2t file into a Quicktime container that Quicktime and FCP and so on can work with, and after I wrap the .m2t files, their duration is reported as correct. Toast doesn't seem to like the file, though, as the motion is a bit herky jerky and not at all smooth (the footage is 60i). Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Oh, and I also thought about using 'Plug & Burn' and just skipping the whole DVHSCap import, but Toast doesn't seem to recognize my camcorder for some reason. If someone could help me get the camcorder recognized, that would be another solution...

    Slideshow Limit?

    Hmm. It's not crashing at a specific image, so I don't think any of them are causing the problem. They are 6MP images, though. Maybe I should do a batch resize. That might be a good idea. I do want to include the 6MP images, though. I guess I could just add them as data using the Toast UDF Data adding method. Thanks for your ideas. I'll try making my images smaller as you suggested.

    Slideshow Limit?

    I'm trying to create a simple slideshow with 752 images. They are broken into 9 different sets, the largest of which has 97 images. The chapters are manual advance. I am using 9.04 on a Macbook running 10.5.5. I have been unable to create this slideshow, as Toast crashes before completing the encode (I am trying to save to a disc image first). Sometimes it crashes after a minute, sometimes it almost finishes, and once it hung at 99% complete. I have tried saving the disc image to my main hard drive, I have tried saving it to an external drive with the files on my main drive. I have tried having the files on the FW drive and saving it there, and I have tried having the files on the FW drive and saving the disc image to my main hard drive. I have tried including the original files (which should result in a 1.58GB disc), not including them, having menus for the slides, not having menus, changing the menu background, not changing the menu background. None of these has worked. Any ideas? Is it just the fact that there are 752 images?
