Slow Disk Image Creation



Lately, when saving a Toast 8.01 file as a disk image, the process is VERY slow. In the progress bar while compiling the file, the status message always reads Waiting...., while the percentage completed increments VERY slowly. It took 53 minutes to compile a file with a length of 1:47:23. It then took another 3 minutes to write the file to the hard drive. The total length of the file is 1:47:23. This is NOT burning a disk but saving a disk image to my hard drive.


Disk burning is also very slow. Using a 16x blank DVD, it took 6:25 to write to the disk with lead-ins and lead-outs. Average write speed was 9x varying from 6x to 17x. (How it can write at 17x with a 16x disk is beyond me.)


I am using a Macintosh Dual 2.7 GHz PowerPC G5, System 10.4.10 with 8 GB DDR SDRAM and burning on the Apple supplied SuperDrive.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I experienced a tremendous slow down one day but it didn't reappear. A couple things I'd try (if you have done this already) is to shut down and start your Mac (rather than restart) and reinstall Toast.
