12.1 Incompatability With Old Imovie?


gnb
 Share

Question

I use an old version (6.0.3) version of iMovie HD to build movies on an old laptop running an old OS (10.6.8; Snow Leopard) and then transfer them to a newer Mac to burn them to disk with Toast 12.1 Titanium. Suddenly, Toast doesn't recognize the movie files created that way, although it does recognize other movie files. What's the fix?

I'm not sure, but are you using the iMovie section in the video tab of the Toast Media Browser to access the movie? If so, my recommendation is to export the movie from iMovie in a high-quality format and add that to Toast.

Potential related issue...The laptop on which I do the recording/editing runs OS 10.6.8, Toast 8, and iMovieHD 6.0.3. It has stopped burning either TS folders or iMovie files to disk.

 

When trying to burn an iMovie file, it tells me the file is an unsupported format. Until a couple of months ago it recognized them and burned them without problem. (When transferred to the newer desktop computer running Yosemite, Toast 12 also doesn't recognize the iMovie files, although it will burn the TS files.)

 

When trying to burn a TS file on the laptop, Toast 8 extracts and compresses the data, but when it tries to write to disk, it stops and gives me an error prompt. It's not always the same error, but the effect is the same. The most recent was "The drive reported an error: Sense key = ABORTED COMMAND, Sense Code = 0x4E, OVERLAPPED COMMANDS ATTEMPTED, The disk failed to be written." No matter what the error, however, it always write just enough that the disk is no longer usable.

 

I have re-installed Toast 8 from the original disk. No difference.

I'm sorry but I don't recall anyone posting that error message before. What happens if you choose Save as Disc Image and then burn that file using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window?

 

You can have multiple versions of Toast on one computer. You might put Toast 8 on the new Mac to see if it recognizes the old iMovie videos.
