I have Toast 11.0.3 on a Mac Mini 2.53 server (late 2009 model) running 10.6.8.
I have this drive (Samsung) hooked up via USB: Samsung Drive and this LG Blu Ray Burner hooked up via Firewire in this case.
Here's my issues:
LG Drive: Can burn Blu-Rays just fine (I've used BD-R 25GB, BD-RE DL, and both work.) Verbatim DVD-R and +R SL work OK, as well as some old Office Depot CDRs. Toast refuses to recognize Verbatim 2X DL DVD+Rs at all in this drive. I can't even get it to recognize the Verbatim is inserted to burn it! This might be the drive, but it's happened with four packs of the Verbatims.
Samsung Drive: Can try and burn a Verbatim DVD+R DL, and it gets to 99% (writing lead out), and then an error pops up (I need to do it again and write it down, but it states it's a "Mac OS" error.) Workaround: If I use Toast to burn my project to a disc image, Disk Utility can burn it just fine on the same Verbatim 2X DL DVD+R media.
So... two questions:
LG Drive: Why doesn't Toast see the Verbatim DVD+R DL? Drive issue, Toast issue, ??
Samsung Drive: Why does the lead out fail at 99% every single time on a Verbatim 2X DVD+R DL? And, why can I save the project to a disc image and then successfully burn it with Disc Utility?
Maybe the Verbatim 2X DVD+R DL isn't the correct media to be using, but I've never had issues with Verbatim in the past...
