Toast 7: Two "audio" Choices. Difference?

Question

When I "Copy" a DVD, I can navigate to the "Advanced" options and see two "Audio Record" modes: DAO and TAO. What's the difference and which one should I use? DAO is default.

 

Also, after I launch Toast 7 then insert a DVD to copy, DVD Player launches. I could prevent this in Toast 6. How can I disable DVD Player from launching in Toast 7?

 

Thanks, Dan

The Track at Once (TAO) and Disc at Once (DAO) only apply to burning audio CDs. DAO is good to leave as the default.

 

You only can control if DVD Player launches by changing the CDs & DVDs settins in System Preferences. There is a setting there for what you want the Mac to do when a video DVD is loaded.

Disc At Once means the laser is not turned on/off while writing an audio CD. It is a requirement to have gapless audio CDs (no noticeable pause between tracks) and/or when writing CD-TEXT. Track At Once turns the laser on and off while writing a CD. iTunes writes audio CDs with Track At Once.

Tsantee,

 

Thanks for the audio info. Question about the DVD Player launch: When I was using Toast 6 and I launched Toast "before" I inserted a DVD, Toast 6 seemed to over-ride DVD Player, even though I had system prefs set to launch DVD Player when disc is inserted. But now, with Toast 7, it doesn't over-ride DVD Player and the Player launches over the top of Toast. It's not a big thing, but I was just wondering why Toast 7 didn't over-ride DVD Player as before. Thanks, Dan

I've just tried it with both Toast 6 and 7 and DVD Player launches either way. But I also think there was a time when Toast being open prevented iDVD from automatically opening. But maybe I'm mistaken or maybe it was that way with OS 10.3.x. In any case, the only workaround I can find is to disable in the CDs & DVDs system preference iDVD from automatically opening.
