Quicktime 7.1.1 Breaks Itunes to Toast burning! No Downgrade


greenjeensus

Question

Got it figured out!

 

Quicktime 7.1.1 Toast-itunes Fiasco

 

Panther 10.3.9 Toast 7.0 and iTunes 6.5.2

Burning Apple Lossless files from iTunes playlist with Toast (for CD TEXT )

Started with Quicktime 7.01... worked until I upgraded Quicktime to 7.1.1

BIG MISTAKE!

 

After throwing a lot of things away and reloading lots of software, I finally tracked the problem down to Quicktime. Not much help with similar problems in the Toast or Quicktime forums.

 

After updating my Quicktime 7.01 to 7.1.1 I could no longer Burn Apple Lossless playlists to CD-R using Toast 7.0 or the upgraded Toast 7.2. Kept getting ERROR Messages that Mac OS would not complete the command because of a problem (-50)

 

To get a working version of Quicktime I had to reinstall my Panther OS discs and start with Quicktime 6.5 then find an archived update to get Quicktime 7.04.

 

There is no downgrade for Quicktime 7.1.1

This is not nice!

 

There is a downgrade of Quicktime 7.04 to 7.01, where I started, but chose to keep the Quicktime 7.04 because it works with the Toast update of 7.02, so far.

 

Quicktime 7.04 will not work with Toast 7.0 Gets another Toast ERROR message that (Mac os?) file cannot be found.

 

Quicktime 7.04 Requires upgrading to Toast 7.02.

 

I am keeping the Quicktime 7.04 to 7.01 downgrader handy, as well as the original Toast 7.0, just in case.

 

Whew! there went about 12 hours of my life!

I did a test and the same happens in tiger. I never use Apple lossless so it no big deal to me, but i can see how that can be annoying. Your only solution is to convert those files to aiff using itunes before burning untill apple or roxio fixes the issue.

 

Thanks for taking the time to test this out, it's very reassuring to see I'm not the only one on the planet with this problem.

Since my whole library is in Apple Lossless this is a big deal. Despite the ability to convert to aiff format first, I'd rather avoid the hassle of yet another step.

 

 

For help in tracking this bug, what versions of Toast, Tiger and Quicktime are you using and what error message from Toast do you get?

 

I suspect the simple ability to downgrade Quicktime 7.1.1 would be a good first step. Apparently there is a simpler way to update using archive and install with the Custom option then (de?) selecting Quicktime.

 

 

Thank you so much!

 

Addendum: I called Apple Support and reported the bug in deatail. The new Quicktime 7.1 and Adobe Photoshop had known problems. 7.1.1 was suppose to fix problems. They were unaware of a 7.1.1 bug with burning Apple Lossles files using Toast. The guy at Apple said the problem would get communicated at the next Appple group forum where these kind of issues are discussed.

I've done some additional tests on this using QT 7.1.1. Toast will use those Apple Lossless files to make a music DVD with either Dolby Digital or PCM audio, so it is just the conversion to AIFF for Audio CD that isn't working. Also, I dragged the iTunes Apple Lossless tracks to Jam 6 and it had no problem burning an audio CD from those. So this is seems specific to QuickTime 7.1.x and Toast 7.x for audio CDs from Apple Lossless files.

Good work getting to the exact problem! The one part broken is the one part I use!

 

There apparently is a way to downgrade the New Quicktime versions, though I have not tried it. Credit to Mark V for finding a Quicktime 7.1.1 downgrade. From Apple Support Discussions.

 

"There is a download that removes all newer versions of quicktime."

MV states "I've used this successfully twice now (once for 7.1 and again for 7.1.1)."

 

The following link rolls back to 7.0.1: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/qui...einstaller.html

 

"After installing, I then download the last QT update before 7.1 (7.0.4)."

 

http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/quicktime704.html

 

 

Another Application that others seem to be using to remove Quicktime is Pacifist. Not sure how easy this is to use with Quicktime...

 

Pacifist

http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12743

 

Product Description:

Shareware application that opens Mac OS X .pkg package files, .dmg disk image files, and .tar, .tgz, and .tar.gz archive files and allows you to extract individual files and folders out of them. This is useful, for instance, if an application which is installed by the operating system becomes damaged and needs to be reinstalled without the hassle of reinstalling all of Mac OS X (for example, if you had accidentally deleted Sherlock and wanted to reinstall it, but not the whole operating system). Pacifist is also able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered files*, and also has the ability to examine the kernel extensions installed in /System/Library/Extensions to determine which ones were installed by Apple and which may have been installed by third-party installers.
