Leopard: Cannot Burn Jpg To Data Disk, Only Video

Question

Leopard 10.5.6

Toast 7.1.3

 

Cannot burn .jpg to any Disk Format except Video Disk. This happens on two different iBook G4s. The .jpg is identified as a Slide show with a time of 5 seconds on the Video Disk.

 

Separately, I tried dragging several different files, including different .jpgs into the Toast window. When ever a .jpg is dragged, it changes the Format to Video. I checked the Toast Preferences and found nothing that would cause this.

 

I need to take the file, on a CD, to a photo shop to have copies made. I had previously put a .pct file on a CD, but the store clerk said they could not read the disk/file.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated. -Gary

That's very strange. Toast doesn't read the content of files that are placed in the Data window so I can't think of any reason why Toast would change to a different window when adding a .jpg to the Data window. Data is data no matter what kind of file it is.

 

As for having the disc read by a the photo shop you need to burn it as a Mac & PC format and also make sure that the extension appears after the file name.

 

The only thing I can suggest regarding the problem getting files into the Data window is to trash the Toast plist and prefs files in your User Library Preferences folder are relaunch Toast.

tsantee,

 

Your snow covered advice was slick. Trashing the plist has seldom been of benefit to me in the past, but I should have tried it anyway. It worked like magic!

 

Thanks for your help. I owe you a hot chocolate!
