    toast 17 gains adjustment removed !!!!!!

    They are still there in Toast 17 - you just have to turn them back on in Preferences. Preferences -> Audio tab -> tick "Show advanced audio mastering settings". - Mike J

    Problem With Lacie D2 External Dvr-rw Drives

    I have recently upgraded to Toast 10 and this problem remains for me. My Mac are now running 10.5.6. Toast 8 still works fine, but 9 and 10 fail when using firewire in my specific setup. Mike J

    Toast 9, Problem With Lacie D2 External Dvd-rw Drives

    John, thanks for the help. I found a Pioneer DVR-112D at work that has firmware 1.21 on it. I tried it this morning and it fails like the others I have tried. So, to summarize, I can't burn to a Pioneer DVR-112D using a Lacie d2 FW/USB external case connected with firewire. My Lacie's are running Lacie firmware v1.02.0500 dated Oct 12 2006. The bridge boards are labelled v2.0.2.0. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help track this down.

    Toast 9, Problem With Lacie D2 External Dvd-rw Drives

    It seems to be the Pioneer DVR-112D's . . . I tried burning with firewire using the original Lacie-supplied TSST SH-S162 mechanisms, and they worked fine. I tried an old Apple-firmware Pioneer DVR-107 and it too worked fine. I tried a brand-new never-opened Pioneer DVR-112D, and it failed, just like the others. All have Pioneer firmware 1.24. (I'd like to find one with older firmware and try it.)

    Toast 9, Problem With Lacie D2 External Dvd-rw Drives

    After reading your reply, I left feedback for Roxio through the link in Toast. I have not yet communicated with LaCie. Once the warranty on the d2 cases expired I upgraded them with newer DVD drive mechanisms. I should dig out the original drives to see if there is a problem with them, too. I did try Toast 9 on my PowerBook G4 1.67 GHz, tonight, and I have the same problem with it.
  7. I have recently ran in to a problem with Toast 9.0.2 and burning DVDs to Pioneer DVR-112D drives in Lacie d2 firewire/USB external cases. I have three Lacie d2 cases. One is older and is firewire only using an Oxford 911 chipset. The other two are newer and are firewire and USB using the Oxford 911-ATAPI chipset. The older, firewire-only unit works fine. The newer units always fail using firewire with the error "Mismatch at byte 0/sector 0. Verification failed." The burned discs are unreadable. Both of these units do work with Toast 9 if I use USB. Both units work fine with firewire and USB if I burn from the Finder. I have the same problem on my MacBook Pro and iMac. (Both are mid-2007 models, 2.4 Ghz, 4 Gb RAM running 10.5.3.) Problem occurs with DVD-R and DVD-RW media. Lacie and Pioneer firmware is up-to-date. The Lacie drive is the only device on the firewire bus. These Lacie units have worked previously with Toast 8, however, I do not know for sure if they have ever worked with version 9. I have very recently rebuilt my MacBook Pro from scratch with a fresh format and install of OS 10.5 and a reinstall of all software. The iMac is new, so the installation conditions are the same. In the process of troubleshooting, I reinstalled Toast 8.0.4 and it works fine. I also removed Toast 9.0.2 and re-installed 9.0.1, which acts the same as 9.0.2. I am not sure what else to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Mike J

    Fonts in Toast 7.1.2, well lack of.

    Cool. I did get it to work on my PowerBook, too. I removed the fonts I copied to my user folder using Font Book. (The fonts now reside only in the the System location. I deleted Toast and its two preference files mentioned earlier in this thread. I rebooted. I downloaded reinstalled the Toast 7.1.2 Update from the website. (CD Key was needed since I deleted the preferences.) The one DVD I tried with menus has text as it should. Maybe the updater I downloaded on the PC was corrupted?

    Just the system supplied Font Book. The fonts are the same as my laptop and are in the System/Library/Fonts location. The system is nearly identical, in fact it is a clone made from my laptop from about a year ago. At the time I downloaded the 7.1.2 update on my PowerBook, the Sonic website did not support a logins or downloads from a Mac, so I downloaded the update on a Windows PC. That has now been fixed, so I am going to try trashing Toast on my PowerBook and re-download the updated directly. When I was poking around earlier today, several of the DVD Menu Template files I opened in Photoshop are reported as being damaged, so I think it is a good idea to reinstall.

    I have tried what you posted, and it does work. Thanks. I tried Toast on my desktop system. It did not have the 7.1.2 update installed yet, so I downloaded it and installed it. Oddly enough, DVD menus on that system have text, even without copying any fonts to the user folder. I checked - there are no duplicates. Toast 7.1.2 works as it should on that system. But why?

    I finally had a chance to copy Lucida Grande to my user folder. Toast still burns DVD menus without text.

    Sorry, I misspelled the font name. It is Lucida Grande (no "n".) Yes, the location is the same as mine. It passes validation. It is a TrueType font. There is no OpenType Postscript version installed. It is only installed in the System/Library/Fonts location and not in my user folder. I had seen other posts about copying the font to the user folder, but I have not tried it either. Lucida Grande is a font required by the system, so it shouldn't be in the user folder anyway.

    I am in agreement with Jim. I really don't think anything has changed, font wise, on my Mac. I believe that the fonts that Photoshop says are missing have always been missing on my system. According to the Toast 7 Menu Styles Designer's Guide (located here), any text using missing fonts are supposed to use the default system font, Lucinda Grande, as a substitute. (Page 9 of the guide.) The DVD's I have burned in the past have used Lucinda Grande, so my guess is my system has always used the substitution font. That substitution doesn't seem to be happening anymore. I think that is the issue that needs to be resolved.

    Thanks for your advice. I have already tried validating all of the fonts on my system with Font Book. No problems were found. "Mac Classic OS" I assume is a font collection? I do not have that on my system, but I do not have Classic installed, so I am guessing that is normal. The only font that has a black dot next to it is Arial. The Microsoft version of the font is disabled. I used Onyx to clean the Font Cache yesterday. My OS is 10.4.8 and was updated using the the combined updater (not Software Update). (It won't hurt to try reapplying it.) I have not tried trashing the Toast preferences yet. I have not tried Toast 7 on my desktop system yet, to see if it has the same problem. I have not tried reinstalling any fonts as described here. I will post what I find.

    I am having this exact problem of menus with no fonts on my DVD. I have never managed the fonts on my system and had never even opened Font Book until today. I have tried opening the Toast Menu Style files (including the demo file downloaded from Roxio's site) with Photoshop, and Photoshop says "some layers have fonts that are missing and need to be replaced before they can be used for vector based output." This looks like a clue, but unfortunately, I'm not a Photoshop guru, so I don't know what this tells me. Any help would be appreciated.
