Audio Cd Will Not Burn

Question

Toast 8 unexpectedly quits every time when I try to burn an audio CD or to create a disc image of an audio CD. Data CDs burn with no problems. I have not had any problems burning an audio CD in iTunes. I have reinstalled the OS to try to fix the problem. I am running the latest version of Leopard on a Macbook Pro. I'm starting to miss Toast 6 on my G5. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

thanks,

Will Abele

The source files are aiff. It generally crashes about 50% through the burn.

I've seen Toast crash when the source files are MP3 and there was some problem with a specific file. In that case converting the MP3 to AIFF resolved the problem. I haven't heard of it happening with AIFF so your situation must be different.

 

Try trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunch Toast to see if that makes any difference.

I've done that. I even went as far as reinstalling OS X to resolve the issue. It still does not work.

I'm bewildered by this. Toast can crash when it has trouble reading a file and it can crash when the drive has trouble writing a file. Most often what happens in that case is Toast freezes or you get an error message rather than crashing. Toast also can crash when it accesses some problem in RAM. It wouldn't hurt to download remtest and do an extensive test of RAM to determine if that may be the problem.

 

There's no chance the hard drive or optical drive went to sleep. You're not trying to copy directly from an existing audio CD. You've reinstalled the OS so I presume you've checked for any potential conflicts with third party codecs in the Library>Quicktime folder. If you've updated to Toast 8.0.4 have you tried with the original version of Toast 8 that you bought?

 

Very puzzling. Sorry I don't know why it's happening.
