    From the Help menu, somewhat cryptic: 12. Video list red and green dot is what ? The red dot is the video have been used, the DVD contain the video . The green dot is the video haven’t been used, the DVD not contain the video .

    CD Audio Problems Now As Well....

    It's probably too simple, but the very old Burn has been updated recently. Also, NCH in Australia I think has Express Burn, perhaps it's worth a try? I have only used it for Data disks and that went fine, no idea about how it does the rest though. https://www.nch.com.au/burn/index.html

    CD Audio Problems Now As Well....

    Please try to understand the definition of an Audio CD. It IS 44.100 and 16 bit. Anything else resolution wise and it cannot be an Audio CD conform its specs. Yes, you can burn Data CD's from those hires files, but they will NOT play in a standard Audio CD Player. Wikipedia: Compact Disc Digital Audio, "Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA or CD-DA), also known as Audio CD, is the standard format for audio compact discs. The standard is defined in the Red Book, one of a series of Rainbow Books (named for their binding colors) that contain the technical specifications for all CD formats". As for ProRes, according to Wikipedia: "ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing". Which may explain your problems. It's simply not a format for burning. Duck-Duck-Go is your non-tracking friend.

    Toast 18 support on mac os 10.15

    Looks like Toast 18.2 has seen the light: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/6351/toast-titanium

    Toast 18 "dark mode" turn off?

    I whole heartedly agree with you and I also hate dark mode. No way to switch it back to normal, so I stopped upgrading. Good old Burn is still alive and recently updated, check it out on MacUpdate. Goodbye Toast!

    Toast Titanium 18

    Still nobody at Corel bothered to check the Toast 18 forum, but hey, what's new there? In the mean time a rather old friend has come back to life: Burn 2.7.5 has seen the light. See Macupdate, https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/21992/burn

    Toast 17 and 18 fail to burn vids > 10GB

    Ehmmm GottaRun, You're posting this in the Toast 17 (and Toast 18 I suppose for the time being) forum, but your screenshot is from Toast 14? So how confused is Corel with this one or they don't care much, per usual. Sorry, my fault, please disregard because I'm afraid I didn't read you're post with enough attention.

    There is Nothing To Record

    A quick search for ProRes 422 on this forum came up with a post that offers an explanation about why this will not work. It reads: Yes, ProRes 422 is an Apple codec in Final Cut Pro X. If you're interested in ProRes, Wikipedia does a good job explaining it. My mistake was not realizing that 422 is an editing or archiving codec -- not for final product, such as a DVD. So based on my experience, to make a DVD in Toast, just use a .mov file that's in H.264. Voila! Forgot to copy the original posters name, sorry for that. Hope this helps though.

    "unsupported format" when adding .MP3

    But, ehmmm, James, from the screenshot I take it you want to make a REAL Audio CD? With MP3 as input there really is no point in doing that, you'll get all the restrictions of an Audio CD with sound on it that's Lossy anyway. Yes, it will play in a "real" CD player, but that's about it. I mean, lossy sound cannot suddenly be un-lossied again just by burning an Audio CD. What's gone is gone and stays gone, I'm afraid. Hence formats such as FLAC, Monkey's Audio or Apple Lossless etc.

    Toast 17 Titanium and Gracenote/CDDB

    Jaikoz gets data from Musicbrainz, for instance. The same site also has SongKong, which might help out. See: http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/

    Toast 17.1 Download.

    Thank you very much Stargator. Corel/Roxio's behaviour of the Mac software community is once again disgusting. No change there. They still haven't corrected the tag line here either.

    Toast 17.1 Download.

    There always also is a link in the Check for Updates - Update screen for the full separate download in Toast itself. This time the About box says 17.2. This one seems to work fine for me in 10.13.6.

    Blu-ray error

    Hmmm, I had something similar going on. The plugin I already owned from Toast 11 I think did not work. Then I got a new Toast 16 one as a freebie in a bundle somewhere and that one does work. Weird, because it looks like they are exactly the same. Still, that's what happened.

    Toast Titanium Pro 16 Bugs / Issues!

    So why is the Toast with High Sierra topic locked, Corel? Hmmm, now it's unlocked, but I can't find how to delete this posting. Sorry guys.

    Toast 15.1 Still Not Compatible With Sierra 10.12.1

    Well, I DID get an email yesterday offering the usual upgrade price. Nah, probably not, Roxio/Corel has milked me long enough with this POS and the problems with it never got fixed. I bet the app itself is exactly the same as 15.1.
