Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard

Question

Hello.

 

Does anyone know about Toast and OS 10.6? Snow Leopard Compatibility at http://snowleopard.wikidot.com/ states that the compatibility of Toast 9.05 is unknown. I'm about to install Snow Leopard and I'm concerned about problems.

 

Thanks.

 

Toast 9 Titanium is not supported on Snow Leopard - that said, not being supported is different from not working. There are a small number of issues that you'll see using Toast 9 Titanium and Mac OS X v10.6 including:

 

- Disc Image Mounter extension not working

- Contextual Menu "Toast It" option not appearing on CTRL-click or right-click of files on desktop

- TiVo Transfer will not launch (see http://kb.roxio.com/search.aspx?URL=/content/000091TT for more details and solution)

- CD Spin Doctor may not draw waveforms correctly and system audio capture will not work

 

In the next few weeks we do plan to release an update to resolve some of the more significant issues, such as Disc Image Mounting not working, but for full compatibility users would need to upgrade to Toast 10.

I'm guessing that Toast 8.0.5 (my most recent full copy) is right out. Anyone try it? (Alas, Roxio's policy of charging nearly full price for an upgrade to each new version has discouraged me from keeping up. That and the fact I really need a family pack for our three machines which will be running Snow Leopard.)

 

However, I do have a couple of copies of Toast Basic 9.0.4 (224) which came with the EyeTV hybrids I have. Looking at the list above, sounds like there's a chance they will work for our basic needs until I can maybe get a new copy(s) for my birthday or Christmas (let someone else buy them for me! :P )

There are many functions in any OS X version of Toast that will continue working. Unless you encounter something that doesn't work, just keep using your Toast 8. When that version isn't adequately meeting your needs (or you're drooling over a new feature added since Toast 8) that's the time to add it to your gift wish list. I don't know if you'll find Toast 9 Basic capable of doing anything that your Toast 8 Full cannot do.

Has Roxio made any progress in writing the updater to make Toast 9 more or less compatible with Snow Leopard? I want to instal SL but not before I can have more confidence that Roxio will make good on its promise.

Toast Video Player does NOT work in Snow Leopard. I was able to watch all my MTS vidz with zero problems until I upgraded to Snow Leopard. Now, the video plays for 2 secs and freezes while the audio continues fine. I'm on an 8 core Mac Pro with plenty of RAM. That and the fact that it worked perfectly in Tiger pretty much means it simply doesn't work in Snow Leopard.

 

This also means the $100cdn I spent on Toast a while back is now down the toilet.

" CD Spin Doctor may not draw waveforms correctly and system audio capture will not work."

 

So, if I just bought CD Spin Doctor and am trying to use it on Snow Leopard, will I have to buy Toast 10 to get it to work correctly?

 

Not that I would buy a another program just to get the one I already spent 50 bucks on to work as advertised...

I believe the version 6.1.1 update for the standalone CD Spin Doctor works with Snow Leopard because the version history mentions fixes for Snow Leopard. Go here to download the update.
