Over many years I successfully used Spin Doctor to collect music. The version with which I started was included with Toast 7, Spin Doctor 188.8.131.524t, after a series of Roxio upgrades. The Mac operating system used at the time was 10.6. Now Mac is 10.10.
When I attempt to open a music file, .aiff format, using Spin Doctor, the file starts to open; I can read the titles of the few songs visible in the window at the bottom of the view while the waveform is being regenerated. When the horizontal blue action line reaches the end of its "generation" line, Spin Doctor crashes and I get a long, detailed error report that I don't know how to use to correct the crash. Apparently Mac 10.10 has a conflict.
I have an old Mac with 10.6. Using File Sharing, I installed Toast/Spin Doctor and a one of the .aiff music files. When I try to open the file, rather than seeing the song tiles while the waveform is being regenerated, for some reason the metadata/metafiles are not transfered; Spin Doctor generates a new waveform with no preservation of the individual intervals of songs, just one 2 hour long music file.
Some place on my main Mac the waveforms and song titles exist. They seem not to transfer to the 10.6 Mac, however. I bought a newer version of Spin Doctor, version 6 years ago following discussion with Roxio but version 6 didn't recognize the waveforms or songs either. I could buy Toast 12 but I'm fear that backwards compatibility has been lost.
Suggestions please of how to resurrect the song titles from my hard drive.
Problem Report attached.
