    Playback Prohibited By Area Limitations

    Hi tsantee, You are exactly right, thank you. Was just going to post and I see you beat me to it. Looking through some older notes, this has happened before. I must have trashed the Toast Preferences file and it appears the application defaults to PAL instead of NTSC. Problem solved. Thanks so much! Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com

    Playback Prohibited By Area Limitations

    I just burned a few copies of a music DVD using Toast 11.2.3175. While they work in the computer's drive, when I put them in the (Sony) DVD player, I get a message saying "Playback prohibited by area limitations." I've burned music DVDs before and they work fine in the DVD player. I don't know what's different here (other than the last ones I burned being done with an earlier version of Toast). Is there a bug in this version? I thought it might be a region setting but don't see any place in Toast to set the region. I followed everything I'd done in the past (had notes for all the settings) and suddenly, with this version of Toast (and Yosemite OS), the DVD player won't play the disc. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com

    Custom Dvd Menus - Where?

    Hi tsantee, Once again, as you have many times before, you've helped me with Toast. Thank you, much appreciated. Out of curiosity, which menu is *not* stored here and where is it stored? Thank you again. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Custom Dvd Menus - Where?

    I've created a custom DVD menu I've used for music DVDs with Toast 10 but I don't see it when I look in the Toast 11 menu. In Toast 10 the custom menu was in ~/Library/Applications Support/Roxio/Toast DVD Menu Styles. Where do I need to place a copy for Toast 11 to "see" it? Thanks for any help with this. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Toasted Movie Gets Stuck In Menu

    Hi tsantee, Though I did purchase the disc and this is just for a backup to take on vacation, I understand. Thanks for your reply. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Toasted Movie Gets Stuck In Menu

    I have been trying to burn a backup copy of a movie I purchased. The movie has been extracted to hard drive and can be played from there with no problem. When I try to burn it with Toast, the result plays the intro and previews but when the menu section starts, playback freezes within a few seconds -- before "Play movie" or any other options are visible. I even tried having Toast just create a disk image before burning another coaster and the result was the same: playing from the disk image got stuck in exactly the same place. The original DVD is two layers so part of what Toast is doing prior to writing is compressing down to a single layer size. But I've never encountered a burn (or disk image) getting stuck a few seconds into the Menu section. I'd really like to have a backup on DVD-R so any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks, Barry

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    Hi tsantee, Thank you for your much appreciated reply. You are right, of course. I checked Toast Prefs and found it set to PAL (don't know how that occurred). Have reset it to NTSC and will do a new burn. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    Here's a new one: Since Roxio's Customer Support appears to be non-existent (three days and I've heard nothing from them), I used the old menu I made years ago and have used to burn many successful music DVDs. This is the first one I've burned with Toast 10 though and the first on my new MacBook Pro. It plays fine on my Mac but when I tried it in my regular (Sony) DVD player, I got a message on the screen saying "Playback prohibited by area limitations". ? Any light would be appreciated. (I'm going to start seeking out an alternative to Toast. I've been using it since version 7 and upgraded with each new version. How disappointing to see there is no support from Roxio. I have purchased my last product from them.) Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    Hi tsantee, Thank you. I tried them but neither (even with my own background) does it for me like the menu I created. Tried using it with Toast 7 on my old PowerBook and it didn't recognize the menu either. Strange because it is just a clone of a menu that works in Toast 7 and Toast 10. I had to length the title line in Photoshop in order to fit the somewhat long title of this project. I wish there was an easier way to customize menus. And I wish Roxio though enough of their customers to reply to Customer Service inquiries. (Not even an automated "got you message, will reply as soon as possible"... nothing at all.) Thanks again for you help. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    Hi tsantee, What are the names of those text only menus? Thanks for your help. (Haven't heard back from Roxio support yet.) Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    Hi tsantee, I'm seeing the older menu I created too. It is just the new one that isn't showing. The menu is standard, not widescreen. I'm only adding music, no video. The error message is odd. I get it even with the old .disc file I made long ago. Happily, I have a .toast disc image file from that one that I can use to burn new copies. Now if I can only create one with the new menu. May have to write Roxio support on all this. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com

    Questions On Making A Music Dvd

    I'm having my own troubles making a music DVD with Toast 10. Last time I made one was four years ago with an older version of Toast and an older Mac running an older version of OS X. Now I'm on Toast 10.0.7 with a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.4. The problem is this: When I made that music DVD a few years back, I created my own menu, with instructions I found on the web for using Photoshop. The new music DVD I want to make needs a longer title line than will fit on the old menu I created. So, I copied the file, opened it in Photoshop and modified the first text line on the screen, adding more "x"s to accommodate the longer text I need. I saved the finished file and placed it in Home/Library/Application Support/Roxio/Toast DVD Menu Styles. This is where the old menu I created is. Only thing is, when I open Toast, the new menu name isn't on the list of available choices. What's the "trick" to getting it to show up? *** I'm also having another issue. I've saved the creation in Toast and it created a file called Equinox.disc (Equinox being the name of the project). When I launched Toast today and opened the file, I get a message saying "Equinox.disc" is an unsupported format and could not be added. When I go into the file, the text I entered is there but the music file and picture is no longer there (and I suppose, needs to be re-added). Anyone know why this would be the case? Any help with either of the above would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Best regards, Barry www.soundkeeperrecordings.com www.barrydiamentaudio.com
