SLOW Burn Times

Question

Just moved from Toast 9 to Toast 10, and it seems as if the Toast is burning... I recently needed to add a video to an existing Toast file and reburn. The files were encoded PAL and needed to be converted to NTSC. Fine. It took approximately 10 hours to burn 1 DVD! On a typical audio disk where I convert 2 MP3 files, it takes about 30 minutes to burn, even though it says it will be done in 3 minutes! What happened? The only reason I moved to Toast 10 was to correct a glitch with EyeTV 3.2. Well that was fixed, but this problem is much, much worse. Anyone else experience the slow burn (like the one I am beginning to feel after $99)? I am running an 2.33GHz iMac with 3GB RAM and a 500GB HD under system 10.6.1.

I don't find Toast 10 to be slower than earlier versions. I suggest you trash the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunch Toast. Something seems wrong but I can't guess what it is.

Update as promised. CDs still take an unusually long time to burn and only burn at speeds of 2x-4x. I know the drive is capable of a faster burn and I am using 52x speed disks. Thoughts? I had to return also to version 10.0.5 to correct a burning problem with EyeTV (again). Anyone know of another product that works better?

I have no explanation for this. What brand of discs are you using. It could be the drive's firmware is struggling with the discs. Check with a different brand of quality media (not Memorex).
