  1. I am very sad and disappointed that those of us who for one reason or another cannot upgrade to 10.4.8 have been left out in the cold with the new release of Toast 8. I personally cannot upgrade my operating system because I need to keep OS 9.2.2 and 10.3.9 alive on my dual-boot G4 because there are some programs I could not afford to upgrade and now must run them while booted into 9.2.2. So, I, along with countless others, I'm sure, won't be able to enjoy the benefits of the new program.

    Axxo.nfo File..what Is It?

    Duh...never mind. Today, after making a duplicate of the nfo file, it opened readily in TextEdit. So, just call me "Emily Latella" (from old Saturday Night Live days) and "never mind."

    Axxo.nfo File..what Is It?

    Another Toast 7 newbie question: I was recently given a two-part movie file. Part 1 was named movietitle-aXXo.avi and part two was named movietitle.aXXo.nfo. The avi file (had Quicktime icon) burned perfectly, but to this day I have no idea what the aXXo.nfo file is. Toast would not accept it in the DVD pane; nothing on my Mac would open it with double-clicking. My Mac did suggest opening it with Photoshop, but I was afraid to do that for fear of messing it up. So, the question is: What is an .nfo file and of what use is it? I searched all Roxio fora using aXXO but had no luck...that's why I'm posting. Thanks in advance.

    Converting Video_ts File To Edit In Imovie

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I'm about to get Streamclip now, but out of curiosity, what is the function of Apple's $20 QuickTime MPEG Playback Component? Is that what converts the "Streamclipped" snippets into something that Toast 7 or iDVD 6 can use?

    Converting Video_ts File To Edit In Imovie

    Perhaps this should be a new topic, but I'm a 1-day-old newbie, so please, no flames. Just upgraded to Toast 7 yesterday. I have a cousin whose wife died 2/26/06 and he wants me to edit a home movie someone has transferred from VHS tape onto DVD for him. I'm able to burn (duplicate) the whole thing from the TS folder (there are no chapter markers, etc.), but wonder if there is a way to get this into iMovie or something, delete the portions he does not want to share, and burn the resulting movie in Toast or iDVD. Any help would be appreciated...as quickly as possible, please, and thanks in advance for any help you can give. He's still pretty "raw" following the loss and I'd really like to help him out.
