  1. Can anyone confirm is this has been fixed in newer versions of Toast? Sometimes in Disk Utility, running MacOS Sierra 10.12.4, and Toast 11 installed, Disk Utility fails to not only open, but also causes the Mac to hang sometimes when a DVD (Video DVD, or other DVD) inserted into super drive.. beach ball Confirmed this on another Mac, i can image the disc ok in Disk Utility. Upon removing Toast and all related files, on the affected system, Disk Utility now works ok again... I'm currently running Toast 11, but do not wish to waste an upgrade, is this issue is not fixed. I can get round this by either removig Toast, or starting Mac in Safe Boot (Hold Shift on power on till u see Apple logo) I've tested this issue in a second Admin account, and its persists. So thought i'd mention it here.

    Iso9660 Joliet

    Can Toast 10x create ISO9960 Joliet images or only ISO9660 images only? Reason i ask is a have a whole bunch of Windows CD's i wish to use Toast on Mac to image, however ISO9660 format looses certain filenames due not not being backward compatible... Toast produces an error about these files going to be removed.

    Why Re-Encode

    What is the issue with Toast and always re-encoding ? I have .vob files or any files in Mpeg 2 Video: Mpeg-2, 720x480, 29.97 fps Audio :Dolby Digital Stereo 48000Hz If Toast understand Mpeg-2 then it knows this spec, but chooses to ignore it and re-codes it back into this same spec again ? Doesn't makes sense... But the only thing i could think why Toast ignores Custom "Never" settings. Apart from using other software, is there anyway I can get around this or not? If not, then Roxio has just lost a customer...

    Media Error

    Hi all.. After installing Yosemite, i am unable to burn cd's Not tried any other brand of media (yet) just used Verbatim, and i've gone through about 10 blanks.. All having issues. In Toast 11, i get a "medium error" however i was using the same Verbatin brand before installing Yosemite (clean install), and it was working ok.. Is Toast 11 compatible with Yosemite fully or not ? Apple assures me if external Superdrive can write them it should be compatabile with any blank media..... And every singe one it always starts burnng just fine, but spits it out at around 90%-ish.... I've reseted SMC, even tried burning via iTunes (after creatunig playlist), but same issue.. I'm about to get another brand... but any other suggestions before i do ? If the media was bad it would have been at the beginning of the media, not at the end,,, all of them. Strange this only happened after installing 10.10, but it could also be a coinsidence i guess too. Since iTunes 12.1 is kind of 'flaky' it just "masks".... no error, or anyting,but u know it's bad...... (not ready for prime time)

    Converting .flac Files

    Hi all, When draging & dopping .flac files into Toas 11.x (Convert) , 99 files all up, I get a message that 13 of these couldn't be added because they in the wrong format, or not supported. All of them are .flac and they play correctly, so why can't Toast handle some of these ?

    Disc Recovery

    Hi al.. Does "Disc Recovery"work on copying video dvd's ? or only Data Disc's In the GUI it says "Data", but in the manual it says "Helps recovery files from discs" though it doesn't explicty state what type. However, the optopn appears under the Copy tab & other areas wthin Toast, so this kind of makes me think it would also apply to any discs. Can someone give more info on this ?

    Compare Doesn't Work

    Hi all,, I used compare ages ago, but mre recently it always returns "Error: opening origional (-39)" in green text. That is regardless of what file/folder it scans.. The progress does go though since you see the bar at the bottom, but at the end it says it can't open opigional.. Isn't the progess bar sposed to be indicating that it is actually comparing ? The drive(s) it's comparing to and from are both USB 3.0 and plugged in/operating ok..

    Converting Dvd/bluray To .mkv?

    or optionally, use VLC/Handbrake combo... The winning combonation.

    Hard-Coded Subs Only ?

    Just a general question, can Toast handle .mkv files with seperate Subtitle track ? (not .SRT, but in the .mkv file iteself), or must it be hard-coded ? (basicallly meaning the "subtitle" button on your remotre will have no effect ?)

    Problem With Re-Wriable Media

    Not really a big issue, but does anyone know why Toast doesn not eject a completed DVD-RW media ? Toast Forces you to "eject" from the Recorder menu, (eg. the Media eject key on the Mac does not eject.) The icon disappears, but then constantly, reappears. This is on a disc thas has been finalized, and when played (if a DVD Video), or read (data), it works perfectly otherwise. This only pretains to writable media, not DVD-R/+R ... I am using the latest version of Toast, and this issue has been going on for as long as I can remember.
