    Where Is The "save As Disk Image" ?

    In TOAST 10 the selection to save as disk image was plain to see/find in the interface. ScreenShot. In TOAST 11 its not there. Where did you guys hide that choice of saving as a disk image and not burning.

    Unbelievable Incompetence

    outsourcing, a waste of corporate profits and an excellent decision by those guys in corporate suits to kill sales : are you listing ROXIO ?

    peterguitar, just wanted to say that sorry i missed your question to me however as usual tsantee understood your problem and provided help
  4. When I launch TOAST 11 it takes time out ( spinning wheel of fortune )to load my iTunes Library. I rarely if ever use TOAST ( any version ) to burn songs from my iTunes Library. How do i stop TOAST 11 from loading my iTunes library ?

    Dvd+R Versus Dvd-R As Source Disc

    Perhaps the source VIDEO_TS folder is corrupted. I use DVDRemaster to " clean " corrupted VIDEO_TS folder. You could also try MPEG Streamclip.

    Add Subtitles

    I use Toast to encode avi movie files to be playable in my TV/DVD player ( NTSC ). Some of those avi movie files also have language subtitle files. Can i add subtitle file to an avi file in Toast 11 ? If it can i don't see how it's done.

    Should I Pal Or Ntsc ?

    Not really only because it's a huge pain in the studio and so have to live with the way it has to be done. At the same time glad that Toast 10 can convert from .avi to VIDO_TS. I have tried using ffmegX but it takes just as long. Although ffmegX can add ready made subtitle files because i don't know how to do that with Toast. Many thanks for the clarification/information tsantee.

    Should I Pal Or Ntsc ?

    I have an .avi movie file that plays fine on my Mac. I will be playing this movie using my TV/DVD player but when i dropped it into Toast 10 this message came up: "The TV standard is currently set to NTSC, but all your content is in PAL format. Do you want to write a PAL disc or re-encode all content to NTSC?" The three choices are cancel, reencode to NTSC, Write Pal. We don't want cancel. Do I "Write PAL" ( which is the highlighted choice )? or do I "Reencode to NTSC" ? Not exactly sure what choice to make. Help required please.

    Should I Pal Or Ntsc ?

    Thanks for sharing that information because i thought i was the only one with the problem/question. The .avi's i download come from my searching for old and new movies using VUZE and so i suspect the majority of those are created in countries where PAL is the standard video format. And so like yourself i wait for Toast to re-encode to NTSC. That's when i farm out that job to a legacy Mac since the process plus burning take a extraordinary long time.
  12. I have an .avi foreign language movie file. Toast 10 converts that .avi to a file playable ( after burning ) in my TV/DVD player. There is also has an English subtitle file an .srt file that i need to embed to fully understand the movie. How do i use Toast to embed the subtitles into the movie file.

    I live in Canada. So then it's NTSC ?

    Toast For Os 9

    i have acquired a iMac G3 500MHz ( the blue jelly bean ). I am keeping this machine at OS 9.2 with no intentions of going to OS X with this machine. What ROXIO TOAST will work in OS 9 with the iMac G3?

    Toast For Os 9

    Thanks for your interest/reply. I have a registered copy of Toast 4.2 ( yep that old ). Now this iMac has a built in CD optical drive/burner. I read that I can attach my external FireWired LG CD/DVD burner and use Toast to burn to that CD/DVD burner. I've tried this and that but no such luck it just can't "see" the external burner. I am keeping this iMac at OS 9 with no intention to have OS X installed. Any hints how i can get the OS 9 to "see" and use the external FireWire CD/DVD burner ? Thanks.
  16. When i download some applications in .dmg format such as Roxio's Toast or Popcorn their are fancy graphics and back ground colors. Is there a special programme to do that ? I have tried to color the background in just a collection of folders I am burning but the color does not appear in the burned copy.
  17. I have the training films for a audio/video programme. They are contained in sub-folders in the main folder. The sub-folder's, arranged by topic, and may have 2 to 15 or more quick-time movie files, for example " 58707_04_01_SC12_midi-mov.mov ". How do I retain their arrangement order when I burn the contents of the main folder ( 3.85 GB ) so that i can play them or have them play one after an other in a continuous flow ? At the moment i just double click each file which is a bit of a pain in the studio.

    converting dot avi files to Audio/Video_TS files

    Thank you DigitalMaster: very very helpful video. This is what i was talking about: http://www.vuze.com/ Yep, I'm a scoff law guy albeit it gives reason to buy DVD-media and keep updating Toast.
  21. I just started to use Vuze. however the movie downloads are .avi files and are playable in my iMac. How do i convert those files to Audio/Video_TS files to be able to play them in my TV DVD player to watch the movie on a TV screen ? __________________ Excuse MR MAGOO for increasing the font.

    Toast will not erase

    I want to erase a DVD-RAM but TOAST 10......6 tells me that Only CD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and BD-RE endue can be erased. What's with that TOAST 10.....6 ? Excuse MR MAGOO for increasing the font. He has vision problems these days.

    Toast will not erase

    thank you for the information: very informative and helpful for me: now i get it and thanks to you know how to do what had plans to do : now i;m going back to staples to return the pack of DVD-RAM disks they assured me would work with my mac would they work if i was running windows in parallel or running ubuntu ( intel version ) ?

    Toast will not erase

    I just bought these DVD-RAM discs because it was my understanding that these discs are like hard drives or flash drives without going thru a burn session. Yes i re-inserted them with the same message. Did a shut down and restart of Toast 10.006 with the same message when i inserted the discs. I am still confused as to the conflict in the dialogue.

    Burn fails

    Using Toast 10.0.5 ( SLeo ) and just today have had 3 DVD-R ( memorex ) failures. All was OK a few days ago. After the first failure I did a restart and after the second failure ran TechToolPro from the TTPro virtual drive. No problems with hard drive or files. Also ran repair permissions with no problems reported. Used DiskWarrior 4.2 to refurbish the directory. With Each failure i am told: What does those messages mean and how can i fix ? Have is missed some Leo updates or Toast updates ? When i used Leo's burning service all was OK so then why is Toast not working ?
