Toast And Tiger Problems?


alexeddington

Question

I am running OSX 10.4.4 (tiger) on a G5 iMac.

 

I bought Toast 7 and it worked for the first use. Then, a few days later when I tried to use it, it wouldn't open - and the computer could not shut itself down or restart, because force quit did not work. I have installed the 7.0.2 updater, and tried every combination of repairing permissions, reinstalling etc., but nothing has any effect. The programme has only opened the one time. I have registered it, and I really want to get it to work.

 

AND when I repair permissions, many come up immediately regarding DVD player. And then quite a few about widgets. These come up every time, whether Toast is currently installed or not.

 

Help, please!

I have those widget permissions issues too and need to find out why that's happening. However, your issue with Toast might be fixed by doing two things. One is to go to the Preferences folder in your User Library and delete the two Toast plist files. Then use an application such as Onyx, Macaroni or MacJanitor to clean your system cache files. Hopefully one of these steps will enable Toast to launch again.

 

By the way, do you have any Firewire or USB devices connected (other than the keyboard and mouse)?

Hmmm, I'm thinking more in the line of Directory problems. Did the disk have its weekly DiskWarrior sweep? IMNSHO DW is a Must Have for keeping disks healthy and weird problems out of the door. Yes, it costs money, but I think it's money well spent. When you eventually get a new machine you don't have to pay over again, just order a new disc when it gets available that will startup your Mac for a fraction of the original app's price. DW (and AppleJack for that matter) have bailed me out through the years more than once.

Hi Tsantee -

 

Did a clean with Onyx and all appears to be well. Thanks!

 

USB devices (not always connected) - Digidesign MBox, USB flash drive (which generally sits in there and has been during this trouble, come to think of it

 

Firewire: Lacie external hard drive (generally plugged in to firewire but powered off)

 

I unplugged all of that too.
