Toast 12 Still Not Able To Mount .sd2F Images

Question

Hi,

 

Toast 12 crashes when I want to mount a .Sd2f image of an audio CD I created some time ago. I have to reboot to be able to use Toast again :( The same already happened with Toast 11 on my machine, and as far as I have seen there have been more or less lenghty discussions on this topic.

 

Is there any solution for this?

 

Is is possible to convert the .Sd2f files to a more common file format, say, ISO? Simply renaming the file as was mentioned in another thread (http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/95929-convert-sd2f-to-iso/) doesn't work for me...

 

 

Regards

 

Thorsten

The problem with mounting a .sd2f file is that the Mac OS considers it an audio file and not a disc image. You can place the .sd2f file in Toast's Audio or Convert windows and play it from there. It also works for me to change the extension to .iso and use Mount It to mount the .sd2f as an audio CD.

Doubleclicking on a .Sd2f file to open the file inside Toast itself works, yes. However, your tip to change the extension to .iso and use Mount It doesn't work for me. In the terminal I can see several instances of the ToastImageMounter process, obviously crashing and respawn itself, and when I then start Toast, the application simply hangs and has to be killed. Same effect when mounting the .Sd2f file from within Toast.

 

Manually executing ToastImageMounter via terminal to mount an audio CD image I recently created gives the following output:

Then the process obviously crashes, restarts itself, prints the same messages, crashes again etc.pp.

 

 

Any more ideas?

not only that, but force quitting the application leaves it useless on relaunch as well after performing the mount CD image steps. The only way is to reboot the whole machine.

david gideon, can you tell me exactly which Toast version can mount .sd2F images?

 

Does anyone know if the new Toast 14 will mount .sd2F images?

Seems it works fine since Toast 12.1 release.

Toast 12 is not tested and considered as not compatible to El Capitan. Users can try it but Roxio will not be providing support for it yet until such confirmation about the compatibility has been released by the company.
