Archive AVCHD feature has very limited capacity



iMac i5

Sony HDR-SR1 AVCHD Handycam (30Gb HDD)

Roxio Toast 10.0.5 Titanium


Have not yet received a response from Roxio Customer Support so hopefully I can get help from this forum.


My Handycam HDD is full. I purchased Toast primarily because of its advertised feature of "Archiving AVCHD Video from your Camcorder" as a backup prior to editing video (probably via iMovie 09).


Toast recommended 4 x DVD DL disks which I had ready to burn.


At the next stage Toast came up with the "error" message:


"Only 98 movies or slideshows can be written. Please remove some items".


I guess that Toast has read the approx. 300 to 400 individual clips on my Handycam as individual movies. Apart from deleting my valuable movies directly from the camera I cannot see any other way of "removing some items".


Others have had the same issue. See:




In this case the person gave up and resorted to a Canon Archive solution.


Only 98 clips is very limiting (if not useless) for an archive feature.


Why is Roxio marketing a feature that does not appear to work?


Has anybody found a way around this using Toast?
