Lead Out Problem



Hi there,


I just bought Toast 7 and I am using it on a mac dual 2.0 (10.4.4). Well the problem is that I need to burn DVD's with 4.2GB content and most everytime I have to restart my mac because the Toast seems to freeze or hang when it comes to write the "lead out". I will have to force quit Toast 7 and restart my mac when this happens (otherwise I can't get the DVD out).


I successfully burned many DVD's with Apples own burn features but I am very dissapointed with Toast at this point. I made a few more tests and nothing seems to help. What I noticed is that TOAST eats up all my existing RAM (2.5GB) and dosn't give the RAM free anymore. I think this could be an indication and it looks like THIS is the problem. A memory leak.


Can anybody help? I have the latest version of Toast (7.0.2)

Oftentimes this is a media or drive firmware issue. It is happening when writing to the outer part of the disc where quality-control may have been lax. In addition to trying different media, I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image from the Toast File menu and then burning the resulting image file using the Copy window. Sometimes this prevents such issues.

Thanks for your input guys.


tsantee, I doubt that this is a firmware issue but I am not sure actually. The thing is that when I use apples own burning features that I don't get this kind of problem but only with TOAST 7. The RAM get's eaten up and will not be set free once eaten. It sounds like a memory leak in the software in my opinion but then again I am not a programmer.


Anybody else here with experience on this topic?
