As a newcomer to Toast, purchased in a bundle through another forum group, I've found it difficult to work with and cannot figure out how it works because my experience and what I see and happens on-screen bears little resemblance to the tutorials. Please bear with my ignorance but perhaps my brain doesn't work in accordance with the conventions used by Toast's developers. Sorry, but that's what is. First question: How do I ascertain the version of Toast that I have, please? I think I have Toast Titanium 11 and I have updated it but beyond that I have no knowledge. Opening the app and clicking on the Toast Titanium title in the menu bar produces no result as the "About Toast" menu item is greyed out. Second question: How do I get the copy function to work, please? Following the instructions in the Toast Titanium User Guideâ€‹ is practically useless to me because when I follow the prescription for a single drive machine nothing happens apart from a few clicks and whirrs. No ejection of disk after copying; no prompt to insert blank disk; nothing. Perhaps I'm impatient but waiting for several minutes after the whirring and clicking have stopped seems like far too long for an i7 CPU machine operating normally otherwise. My experience of similar Window-based products usually keep the user informed if a process takes some time with messages like "Reading Disk" etc. Nothing appears on my screen to tell me what's happening. Also, the link to the copying dvd tutorial given in the support page appears to refer to an earlier version of Toast; it bears no relationship to the version that opens on my screen. I'm (not) using Toast Titanium on a 15" mid-2012 MacBook Pro with OSX 10.8.5. All suggestions gratefully received, because Toast is not, so far, living up to its reputation.
I am getting "Error writing image to hard drive, make sure you have at least 2.7GB of free space..". I have looked at previous posts on this bug in the software, and can already tell you I have at least 50GB of free space on every drive, about 4TB of free space on the PC, yes I have emptied recycle bin, defraged, run checkdisk for errors, etc. There is some bug in the software on this where it is trying to write to some odd location it should not be. I cannot locate a setting to even point to a fast place to cache (I have to Solid State Drives available in addition to normal SATA ones). System is Windows 8.1 Pro, 16GB RAM, 64 bit. I have been able to copy many DVDs but about every 4-5 it hangs up with this error. No, the DVDs are not copy-protected; they are ones I made with Creator from my video. The DVDs play fine, indicating no error reading, this is some cache problem. Any thoughts?
