Toast Hangs After Verification


ruffdawg

Question

Hi.

 

I have been having a very large problem trying to back up my files with Toast 5.2.2 I can open the program no problem, and I can add files to toast. I'm trying to back up some data with no luck. I'm using a LaCie D2 External Dvd+/-RW burner.

 

When I attempt to click the 'record' button, a small window pops up, verifying the files. From there, Toast hangs with the spinning wheel. I have left it running like that, only to find it in the same situation.

 

Also, I am running Mac OS 9.2

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm not sure about Toast 5 Lite's ability to burn data DVDs. It may not be a problem but I have no experience with that. Does this problem also happen when trying to burn to CD media? Also, be sure to use DVD-R rather than DVD+R because OS 9 doesn't read +R media.

thanks for the reply tsantee.

 

Toast 5 was burning Data DVDs before so i assume there would be no problem there.

 

Everything that im trying to backup is more than CD size although I can try it out and let you know.

 

Also, I am using DVD-R media.

 

Let me know if you find anything. Thanks

When you say it was burning data DVDs before, when did it work? What changed? At the end of that file verfication Toast should start filling the buffer. Have you tried a simulated burn (I don't know if that option is available on your Toast version). Also, is your firmware up to date. Newer firmware may be needed to work with new media.

 

I know I'm not much help here. It's been awhile since I used Toast 5 in OS 9 and I never used Toast Lite. But there aren't many folks visiting this forum who ever used Toast 5 so I'm doing the best I can to guess at the issue. You might try rebuilding your desktop database file.

Well it worked up until I used iTunes to convert some .wav files to .mp3, which was last week.

 

Also, I have OS X 10.3.2 installed with Toast Lite 6.1 and i still have the same problem.

 

I would like to try a couple of solutions before I go about updating my firmware, since its more or less a last resort for me. I once b0rked an Internal DVD+/-RW drive by doing that on a PC. It should work without the Firmware update, since it worked without it before.

 

any other solutions would be great, thanks.
