This is great news but I will be darned if I can find where to download the update for Toast Titanium 14.1. If I launch Toast Titanium 14.0 in El Capitan all of the menu items are inactive and I don't see a means to perform an update in the menus. MacUpdate posted that 14.1 is available but when I clicked on its download button it simply took me to Roxio and again, no place to choose the download without forking out additional money.

 

Why do you make it so difficult to update a broken product. Your Software Updates page has updates for Toast 9, 10, 11, and 12 which doesn't do much for Toast 14 does it.

Well, I'm still on 10.9.5 and got it through an automatic update check. The update window also presented a link to download the complete file separately. But if Check for Updates is greyed out you indeed have a problem. I'd wait a while to see if other Captain users encounter the same problem or not.

Downloaded 14.1 from Check for Update dialog in Toast 14.0. The download went fine. But when I install the Toast pkg file, it end up with error that the install cannot fail, and ask me to contact developer.

 

So I proceed to install the Toast pkg file, and found that the problem that block the installer is sound flower.kext. Pacifist show me the following error dialog:

 

System extension cannot be used

 

The system extension “/System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext” was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product’s vendor for an update.

The rest of Toast app install fine. I now have Toast 14.1 running on my system (Macbook Pro 15 inches running OSX 10.11.1)

But Toast Audio Assistant seems not working. It can open fine, but when I click on Build in microphone, then click record,it start recording, but there is nothing show on L and R

If I click on sound flower (64 ch device and other device except built in microphone, and then click record, there are sound signal in l and R screen

My built in microphone is tested and working in all other applications but not in Toast Audio Assistant

What go wrong

So the problem is:

1, How to install the included sound flower.kext that cause error in Toast installer 14.1. Please note that I have sound flower on my system already and it work fine

2. How to get built in microphone to work in Toast Audio Assistant?

Please support

I did manage to burn a Data DVD with 14.1 on 10.9.5, something that went wrong since Toast 12. The only glitch this time was the Percentage Completed counter not working during the actual burning phase. It did work during Lead In, Verify etc.

I'm running El Cap (10.11.1), I updated to 14.1 and I'm still seeing issues. Before updating to 14.1 I saw the same thing, burning a DVD takes forever! It seems that it is following the opposite of the watched-pot rule, that progress only advances when I'm watching. When I walk away and the monitor goes to sleep (machine is set not to sleep), it stalls. I just had a disc that took 4 days(!!) to write, it verified fine in about 5 minutes successfully.

I learned just this week, while Googling around trying to resolve my own issue, that OSX has an "app nap" feature that reduces computing power to apps that seem to be idle. You can disable it in individual apps. Go into to your Applications folder, then right-click on the Toast 14 app and select Get Info from the contextual menu that pops up. There will be a checkbox that says "Prevent App Nap." Check that. Maybe it will help.

That did the trick, thanks so much!

Just installed the update for Toast 14 on El Capitan. Still has issues. Same issues as before the update. Happens during conversion of Bluray rip to DV format, video is jittery.... this was the case before the update and after upgrading to El Capitan. Not happy.

So perhaps I was too hasty in my post, as I tried a different movie, just for grins and it was also a Bluray rip that worked just fine. Converted very quickly compared to Toast 11 which is the last one that I was using and seems to be encoding much quicker than I used to as well, which is nice. Looks like the update works just fine....

 

 

Edit-

*Ok, I posted this after converting a different movie than the one I have been trying since I upgraded to El Capitan and installed Toast 14, since Toast 11 no longer worked with El Capitan. It seemed to run smoothly when I previewd it, but before I burned it. Now that I have burned it and am trying to watch in via the DVD player on my MBP, it is in fact choppy. I am not sure what the issue is or why this is happening. I originally thought it was the quality of the rip that I had, but it turns out that there was nothing wrong with either rip....

I can no longer open Toast 14 which I purchased on November 12, 2015. It hangs when trying to open. I think it opened it once or twice, but now it won't open at all. Even when it did open the first time, it took a long time to do so. I'm running El Capitan on an early 2011 MacBook Pro. I re-installed Toast 11 and it works fine.

So I have not seen much in the way of connection has become unstable: error 5 and I'm hoping this fixes the issue I have had. A brand new LG blu ray writer supporting 14x and up to quad layer blu ray. I will report back after I disconnect from my desktop pc and reconnect to iMac. Sure hopes this works I really took a verbal beating from my wife when the blu ray burns were failing. I would also like to note that I opened a support ticket when the issue first appeared. There was no mention that there were known issues with toast 14 and el capitan. Had I known it would have saved me a couple hard days of googling to try and see where the problem might be. Doesn't make me very pleased.

 

L8R,

Just did the update on a freshly installed Toast T Pro 14.

The updated Toast crashed upon launching several times.

Removed the prefs from the Library folder, just in case. No change. Still crashes.

Deleted the Toast folder from Applications.

Reinstalled the un-updated Toast Pro, which now works — as well as it originally did.

At least I can use it for Blu Ray data backup while Roxio works the bugs out of this not-ready-for-primetime update.

After updating to 14.1, Toast crashed every time at launch. I deleted and reinstalled 14.0 from disc, and it worked OK. Then updated within app, and same failure.

 

I then deleted all Roxio pref files and downloaded the "latest installer" i.e. 14.1 (though the file is not versioned correctly!) and this also failed in the same way.

 

Then I deleted all Roxio pref files, restarted Mac, and reinstalled using the "latest installer." This time, unlike before, it asked for my serial number, which I entered, and this time the app seems to run.

SO, I conclude that Roxio's software update procedures are BROKEN! Please fix this awful bug-ridden excuse for a coaster-maker and stop infuriating your customers, if you care at all about them! Thanks to all the other hapless Toast users whose suggestions I followed here. It's unfathomable why this never-improving app should always be so darned buggy! (Oh, and I'm still on Yosemite 10.10.5, and dreading incompatibility between Roxio and ElCapitain.)
