    Can't Reload Popcorn

    My iMac had problems so I had to take everything back to factory settings and reload lots of software and updates. Everything is working fine now, except I cannot get Popcorn to open. I put in my disk, drag Popcorn 3 to the applications folder in the same area shown, and it appears to download. When it is done, I go to my Applications folder and click on Popcorn. For maybe 5 seconds, the application icon appears my dock, but then goes poof. I have tried reinstalling it 3 times. On the second effort, it even asked for my CD key (which I entered) and other info. But, it still did not work. When I reinstalled over that, I did not get those questions again. I am running the latest Mac operating system, and all other software is up to date. Any suggestions? JoeyC2

    How Do I Take Chapters From Different Dvds?

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, tsantee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your instructions were very detailed, very clear, and everything worked great! I really appreciate your taking the time to do this. I was about ready to take this program back to the store, but with your help, I can now do what I was hoping to do with this. I have printed out your instructions, will make multiple copies, and save it to my computer, also. I strongly suggest anyone wanting to make compilation dvds to do the same! Thanks again!

    Should I Save A File Image As .toast?

    OK, got it. I double clicked on the disc showing on the desktop, and it opens up a window showing the Video and Audio _TS folders. Thanks!

    What Is Mount?

    I went into Finder and found the two .toast files I have saved as disc images. Evidently, when they are saved they are automatically mounted? I do not recall specifying to Mount them, but their is no contextual option to do so. Further, if I double click on them, they show up as a disc on the desktop that I can play with DVD Player. So, are you saying that when I save as a disc image, it is appropriate to use the .toast extension?

    What Is Mount?

    Can someone please explain what the hell it means to Mount a file???????
  7. I tried saving a dvd as an disc image file. I was able to do so, and saw that the default is to save it as a .toast file. I can access it on my hard drive and watch it. However, when I try to make a Video_TS compilation cd, I have a problem. I can drag a .mov file just fine. But, when I try to drag the .toast file, I get this message: File is an unsupported format and cannot be imported. Huh? I created it in Popcorn. I don't know much about _TS files, so that must be the problem. So, I guess the real question is ---- when saving a dvd as a disc image, should I save it as a .toast file, or give it another extension? Will other extensions even work? Again, I am saving these as disc images so that I can later put together compilation discs, with chapters from multiple dvds.

    Can't Open Popcorn

    I share your frustration!!! Like I said, I got the download to work. I think what I did was use Safari to go the main page for Roxio, select Popcorn, and click to download like I was buying it for the first time. Since I had registered the product from the box, Roxio recognized that, so I entered my Key # from the box and then the updated software download began. Even after that, it was a pain to get to work. I figured out that I had to get the download into my applications folder, then drag the downloaded update onto the Popcorn icon in the Applications folder. The first time I tried it, it did not work, but did the second time, and I was finally able to open Popcorn. Then, the real fun begins. What an obtuse, user-unfriendly program, if you want to do anything other than simply copying a dvd. With a lot of work, I have been able to sort thru some of the maze, and hope that others on this board can get me the rest of the way!
  9. I have multiple dvds of concerts, with each dvd having 4 or more chapters. If I want to put together a dvd with Chapters 1 and 2 from the first dvd, and Chapters 3 and 4 from the second dvd, how do I do that? Please explain in detail, as I find this program (and it's guide) to be the least intuitive, most poorly explained software I have ever used. I figured out how I could select a chapter or two from one cd, and drag it, but it did not physically appear in the window. I could tell it had been added by seeing the thing above the Copy button start to fill-up. But, I could not figure out how to get chapters from another dvd into the Content area. I am assuming I must somehow first save each of these chapters to my hard drive. I did save one concert (with 4 chapters), but then could not find a way of selecting specific chapters from that for a new dvd. So, I have given up trying to figure this out on my own. If someone can explain this in detail, I would REALLY appreciate it! This is the sole reason I bought this program.

    Can't Open Popcorn

    Thanks, that worked. It defeated the purpose of going to the store so I could have the disk as backup, but, at least now, the application works. Thanks again.

    Can't Open Popcorn

    I am using an iMac with the latest version of Leopard. I just purchased Popcorn 3 at a retailer and installed it a couple days ago using the disc. I completed the installation and registration process, but did not use the application at that time. Now when I go to open it, the Popcorn icon appears on the Dock for only a second or two, then goes poof and disappears. Do I try a re-install, or is there something else I should do to open Popcorn? Subsequent to posting this, I tried a reinstallation of Popcorn 3, but still have the same problem --- the program will not open. It appears on the Dock for one second, then disappears. The title never appears at the top of the screen. Help!
