DVD loading: Disk insertion error post-Toast 8 install


PatrickD

Question

Serious problem here: I downloaded and installed the upgrade to Toast 8 last week. Did a couple of DVd burns (from VIDEO_TS); after a successful burn, the following message appeared when I attempted to mount the discs:

 

Disk Insertion

The disc you inserted was not readable by this computer.

 

Burned discs appear to play in set-top DVD players in living room. Bigger problem is now I get the same message if I try to insert ANY commercially pressed DVD-V (Office episodes, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE). I get the same message if I try to insert a DVD into my internal drive or my LaCie external burner.

 

I deleted Toast 8 and 7, plus any related files I could find, from my hard drive but the insertion errors continue. I use a Mac G4 mirror-door, OS 10.4.8. At this point I wonder if a system reinstall would help...just want to get back to Toast 7 and happy sailing again.

 

Any Mac people out there who can tell me what to do to get my DVD drives working again? I am a many-year Toast user and have never seen anything like this.

 

Thanks.

I experienced the same problem yesterday after burning a DVD with my recently installed Toast 8. I get the same "not readable" error message when inserting a DVD. I don't have a fix, but want to go on record with the problem.

Strength in numbers! My external LaCie burner mounts everything I put in it when hooked up to my iBook. I think I'm going to backup/format/reinstall on my boot drive and see if that clears things up. Oh, and NOT installing Toast 8. :)

I've seen this. It's not a Toast thing, but an OS issue. A restart usually cured it for me. But then, sometimes it just started working again after some attempts. For me the problem went away about halfway through 10.4. If restarting doesn't help shut the pooter down, take the plug out so the power is completely off, put it back in after a few minutes and then try again. This will reset the Mac's Power Management Unit so you'll have a complete cold start, meaning a better chance for drives to be recognized properly so the Finder can mount discs again. Well, something like that...

Let us know how that works out.
