  1. Using Toast 11.1 (1072). I have 5 .aif files. I put them into Toast and create a disc image (.Sd2f). The disc image only contains the first three songs. The second are technically there, but empty. If I open the disc image in an audio editing program, all 5 tracks are there, but the last two are pure silence. Very frustrating. Downgraded to 11.1 (1067). Same thing. Downgraded to 10.0.9 (569) works fine, as it always has for years. What the hell is up with 11.1 anyway? This is only the latest in a LONG list of problems I've had. If I try to simply burn the CD from Toast, without creating a disc image, same result. The CD contains 5 tracks, but the last two are pure silence. I've tried this with a variety of different tracks, always the same results. Any ideas?

    Files Names Using Custom Hybrid & Audio

    Hi BJacks: Thanks for the response. I'm aware of the "Enhanced Audio CD" feature, however, I'm not interested in using that process. I use the "custom hybrid" approach because it allows me to create completely separate sections for Macs and PCs. That way I can feed PCs certain files that I might not want/need to feed Mac users and vice-versa. The Enhanced Audio CD feature feeds both platforms the same files. What I'm really interested in finding out is if someone can answer my question about why the file names change depending upon whether the custom hybrid disc is burned as a stand alone or added to an audio disc, as I've outline above. Thanks again.

    Files Names Using Custom Hybrid & Audio

    I use Toast to burn audio discs with a custom hybrid section. The audio portion plays fine on any system and the Mac portion of the hybrid mounts on Mac systems, the ISO on PC systems. First I burn the audio onto a blank disc, using the "Write Session" setting. To create the custom hybrid section I use Data > Custom Hybrid and create a disc image with a Mac and and an ISO portion. Once the audio is finished I add the custom hybrid section (as an image file) using the "Write Disc" setting. Here's my problem. If I simply burn the custom hybrid image file to a blank CD (without the audio portion) the full names of the files are retained on the PC version (I use the "Joliet (MS-DOS + Windows)" setting in the ISO 9660 section. Everything is fine, I end up with a disc that contains a Mac portion and a PC portion and works perfectly in both systems, showing the full names. However, if I add this custom hybrid portion (as an image file) to an open ended audio CD then the names on the PC version are shortened and capitalized. Does anyone know why this is happening and if there is any way around it. I'm using the exact same image file. When burned alone it's fine, when added to an audio disc, the names are changed. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  4. I just upgrade Toast to 11.1 on two computers, a brand new iMac and a MacBook Pro that is about a year old. Both are using 10.8.1 (Mountain Lion). I had the same problem installing the program as others have related (no way to finish the installation). I was able to overcome that by trashing preferences. Now, when I try to burn an audio CD the program crashes, every single time, on both computers. As soon as I hit the "Burn" button, it crashes. Anyone got any ideas?
