Toast Fails Everytime At Writing Lead Out

Question

Toast 10 fails every time when writing lead out. I have trashed all the preference files and tried 3 different brands of media with the same problem. I can use Apple's built in burning system and everything works fine leading me to believe the problem is directly related to Toast. I have a Mac Pro with a GGW-H20N Blu-ray burner connected to the SATA connector where the 4 th hard drive would be. This setup has worked fine with Apple's burn engine. Any ideas?

Hi Hawk -

 

Looks like you've done some effective troubleshooting. I couldn't find any references to firmware for this drive.

 

It looks like your burn is going OK till you get to lead out. Try some of these basic and advanced settings in Toast that I pulled from page 27 of the Toast Manual:

  • Reduce your recording speed.
  • Don't "Verify Data"
  • Make sure "Buffer Underrun Prevention" is on.

Looks like turning off verify data fixed the problem. I guess I don't need it anyway. Thanks for your help.

Glad to hear it helped. I'll update the KB article Resolving General Burning Issues with Macs with these suggestions.

I know this is many years later, but stopping "verify data" also fixed this for me. Problem started with a dodgy disc. It's gone since I altered that. Thanks!
