What I want is to simply create a music dvd - the music is actually talks I have given over the past 6 months, and the files are all in iTunes format (AAC I think). But Toast will not do that. It crashes about halfway through the encoding process. I have tried every version since 10.0.3, and Toast will not create a music dvd./ I was able to get it to do so with just one playlist - one talk in other words. I want a dvd with all 26 talks on it.
In reading about creating a music dvd, it seemed so simple. The there was the part about adding your own pictures, and since it is a dvd to be played in dvd players, I thought, 'Hey that would be great!" But alas I cannot get it to even create a music dvd with more than one playlist.
I really do not care to create a slide show. I've done that with iPhoto, iMovie and such. I want a dvd that lists the talks and tracks within the talks, and all that as a menu that a normal dvd player can access. This is what it seemed like a music dvd would be, and what Toast claimed it would and could do. Unfortunately my experience with Toast 10 has been that many things were broken from the start. And every time one thing was fixed, two or three things were broken.
So forget the photos and slide show stuff, how do I create a music dvd? The directions in the manual, and a recent post on the same, simply do not work. I have a Mac Pro, 13 gigs ram, four 2TB hard drives, an SSD raid, external backups, OSX 10.6.4 and 10.5.8 and have tried them all. Restarted, run permissions repair on all drives, do maintenance scripts, pram reset, turn off computer and let it rest a couple of hours. Can you interpret the crash files that get created each time Toast crashes - which has been every time I've tried to burn or create a music dvd or an image. If so I could attach that. Any other suggestions? TIA
