    Toast 10.0.4 CD Spin Doctor 6.1.1 Not Launching

    I'm no longer having a problem capturing audio, but there does appear to be a limit to the length of time CDSD will capture. Is here any way to change the maximum length of time CDSD will capture? I don't believe this is a limitation of disk space as my system has over 100GB of free space.

    Toast 10.0.4 CD Spin Doctor 6.1.1 Not Launching

    Okay, I followed this procedure and can now capture an audio stream, but the feature to automatically identify tracks does not appear to be working as it always selects the entire recording. I'm I doing something wrong?

    I tried to capture an Internet media stream being played with VLC as it's from an ASF source. What was the source you were capturing from?

    Toast 10.0.4 CD Spin Doctor 6.1.1 Not Launching

    Thanks Fred! I am able to open CDSD by using the Extras menu within Toast. I wanted to do exactly what you had described and use the Auto Capture capability of the application. The "Start Auto Music Capture" appears to work as the timer starts, but when the "Stop Auto Music Capture" is selected nothing happens. I was able to open a file cdsd_scratch.caf if I keep the recording time short (less than 10 seconds), but there was not sound captured even in this short file. Please keep me posted if you have any luck getting this functionality to work.
  5. I just purchased and upgraded to Toast 10.0.4 yesterday and attempted to launch CD Spin Doctor this morning and it won't launch. After double clicking on CD Spin Doctor I receive the following error message. Toast 10 Titanium or Later Required This application requires Toast 10 Titanium or later to run on your system. The application will now quit. Why doesn't this new version of CDSD not launch? Mac OS ver. 10.6.1

    Do i have to burn a DVD?

    If the Easy VHS to DVD for Mac application is able to save a video for use in iMovie at the end of the capture process, why doesn't the application provide the ability to convert the MPEG 2 file into iMove after the fact? I have captured several videos and recorded them to DVD and would now like to edit them with iMovie, but there is no simple way to do this other than to go back and re-capture the original video. Okay, if the full version of Toast can do this conversion, what is the upgrade price and process to purchase this version. I looked at the Roxio website and could not find an upgrade price for the full version of Toast 9. It looked like only Toast 10 is available for purchase. Please help me understand why this conversion dan't be provided from within the Easy VHS to DVD for Mac application and if that's not a future direction of the product, which version of Toast I really need. Thanks!

    Burning DVD

    Thanks, all appears to be working correctly now. Some of this was another mistake of mine as I had the audio out cables from the DVD player hooked up wrong.

    Burning DVD

    Yes, I have used the same disks I'm using now with iMovie to create a simple video based slide show from iPhoto. The DVD played just fine in my DVD player. I'm able to play the new DVD on my Mac, it just will not play in my home DVD player. Yes, I did choose DVD format. Okay, I know have the DVD where it will play, but as you described there is no audio. is there any way to have Toast convert the audio to PCM as the DVD is created? I don't remember what it said before (Multiplexing or Encoding. I found a setting in Toast to specify the audio as PCM, now when I started to record the DVD it says Multiplexing then says encoding. I'll see what this produces, but it will be several hours before it's complete.

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, this trouble shooting is going to have to wait for a week as I'm going out of town. I'll provide updates to the questions ask when I return.

    Burning DVD

    I'm using DVD-R don't remember the brand as I've had them for almost a year. I've used these discs in the DVD player before after creating a presentation with iMovie. I expect I need to be using NTSC encoding as this is a US DVD player. Any other ideas as to why the DVD would have an error when inserted into the DVD player? When the disc is inserted into my Mac it immediately begins playing. It was set to PAL, I've now changed this ti NTSC. Now that I've set the preference to NTSC this message no longer appears. Video: MPEG-2 720 x 480, 29.97 fps Audio: Mpeg-1, Stereo, 480000 Hz It does not say anything about NTSC or PAL. This video was captured using the "easy VHS to DVD for Mac" product.

    Burning DVD

    I've used VHS to DVD to create an MPEG-2 file then when into Toast 9 Basic to burn this file to DVD. The final step of the process asked if I wanted the DVD to NTSC or PAL format. The first disk I burned was in NTSC format and played fine on my Mac but gave a disc error when inserted into the DVD player connected to the TV. I then tried to burn another copy in PAL format, but have the same problem. What Am I doing wrong?
