disc burnt with locked files


surface

Question

WARNING. test your data disc to be sure that you can access the files from the after you are done burning. I spent yesterday burning data backups only to find today that i can't access my files.They behave as though they are locked! I was using "Mac & Pc" setting under the data tab.

Anyone else having this problem?

If you open a word document (I just chose Word, but this is true of any document or file type in general) directly from a disc, it will act just as if it were locked because you cant write back to the disc through word. This is completely normal behavior. Try copying the file back to the hard drive and accessing it from there.

I realise that. No, this is simply trying to drag the file from the burnt disc to a drive on my machine. I get the "buster" sign. If i use the copy/paste option Paste isn't available. The files are not appearing to be locked either. I have a feeling Toast is burning discs with incorrect innumerable bit settings.

Can you give me a step by step way to reproduce this problem, starting with exactly how the disc was burnt? I want to test this to see what results I get.

Burn a DVD (single or double layer, minus or plus) using the Mac&PC setting in Toast 8. Auto Open option check marked, do not use HFS Standard option. No autorun option for windows. create the disc volume name with 34 characters. When the disc is done try copying files from it to a hard drive

If you can't copy a file from the disc and get a -36 error in the Finder. It is a bad disc. It could have a fingerprint, it could be dirty, it could be just cheap. That error has nothing to do with Toast burning the disc.

 

That is an Apple error because it can't read the bad media. If you have an Apple Matsushita drive and use cheap media....that is what you get.

I agree, I burn with those steps all the time and I have not seen this problem.

I get no error code. If i try to copy/paste or drag the files onto my machine and there are 4 files for instance the finder says "copying 3 files to..." if there are 8 files it will say "copying 7 files to.." did i mention the folder nesting problem in toast. Also, i have been burning to Verbatim, Sony, and memorex media yesterday and today. Kinda doubt it's media.
