Which Mac are you using? What kind of file is the source for the DVD? If you are trying to create a video DVD disc image does the freeze happen during the encoding stage?

 

 

I am using a PowerMac G5 dual processor 1.25G. The source I have is a file in MP4 format. The freeze usually happens in teh encoding phase however, I was once able to get past that stage and it froze when writing the DVD. I can watch the movie in Quicktime but wanted to create a DVD so I could watch it on my TV.

I'm stumped as to why that is happening. If the encoding takes a long time it is possible for the burner to go to sleep while waiting. When that happens Toast just stalls waiting forever for the drive to start accepting data. The fix to this is to choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button and then burn the disc image using the Image File setting in the Copy window.

 

Typically the reason Toast stalls during encoding is a defect such as dropped frames in the video file. However, you say it got all the way through a different time. You might try trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunching Toast. I don't know why that would matter here, but I don't have any other ideas.

 

A possible workaround if you have lots of available hard drive space is to use the Convert window to change the format of the video to DV and then use the DV file to make your video DVD.
