"Toast It" & "Mount It" broken in Snow Leopard?

Question

These features aren't present for me in Snow Leopard. I ran through the setup procedure again and usually it prompts for the administrator password to enable "Toast It" & "Mount It" on the desktop, but it didn't happen with 10.6. Is this a known issue with Toast 10 and Snow Leopard?

 

Running Toast 10.02 by the way.

Same problem here. We need a response from Roxio regarding this issue.

 

I sure hope the folks at Roxio fix this soon as I have lots of .toast files that are useless.

I can mount .toast files I made using 10.6 and Toast 10.0.2 but can't mount files created using Toast made in Leopard 10.5.

I updated to Toast 10.0.4 and now I can't remove the Toast It option from my contextual menu items. This is with the latest version of Snow Leopard.

 

- When I installed Toast I told it not to install the menu plugin, but it did anyway.

- I tried going into Toast preferences and checking "install Toast It and Mount It...", then restarting, then unchecking "install Toast It and Mount it...", then restarting, but it's still there.

- I tried to manually delete the Toast It plugin from ~\Library\Contextual Menu Items\, but it doesn't exist.

- It also doesn't exist at {HD}\Library\Contextual Menu Items\.

 

Anyone else seeing this?

On my MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.1 the ToastIt contextual menu is in the user>Library>Contextual Menus folder. It is dated October 9, 2009. I had some trouble installing it (because I like to have Mount It). The installer wouldn't replace the older version so I had to drag the older one to the trash before running Toast's setup to get the new one. I then needed to restart the Mac (although I probably only needed to log out and in) before the plug in appeared in the contextual menu.

 

I'm providing this as background. I know it doesn't directly answer your question. I want you to know that the ToastIt plugin should be in the contextual menus folder. The fact that it isn't there yet still appears in your contextual menu suggests to me that some cleanup is needed of your Macs database file. Maybe this is a good time to run the repair function in Disk Utility or better yet run Disk Warrior if you have it.

i had same issue. i believe the ".4" update fixed my problems... but im not sure cuz i also shuffled the plugins from the library/contextual menus folder from one mac that the menus were working in to the mac that the menus were not... but now the mac that had the problem with no menus is fine and has the menus. :)

After upgrading to Snow Leopard, I can’t drag files onto the Toast window, nor open moviefiles or open Toast-files. The application just goes on with the clock or "the spinning wheel of hell". I am running the latest updates of OS X and Toast.

Trash the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunch Toast. That should fix it.

The "Mount it" feature doesn't appear in the files menu on Snow Leopard, but you can find it inside Toast's menu, go to Utilities and click on "Mount disc image".

Mount It appears for me in Snow Leopard after selecting Services in the contextual menu when I control-click on a .toast file in the Finder.
