Toast 10.0.7 Problems

Question

Hello,

I'm having trouble with the latest update to Toast 10: 10.0.7. I've begun to delete the application and all preferences every time Roxio repleases a new fix, but even that didn't work this time. What is happening is after editing the video file(s), I try to burn it to a single layer DVD, and get an error stating that the program can't continue, one or more of the files are in use. I've tried rebooting the laptop and only starting Toast, but get the same error. I also tried Saving as a disc image, but get the same error. I removed the 10.0.7 application and installed from the 10.0.4 dmg file, and everything is fine.

 

I'm getting frustrated with Roxio releasing a supposed "fix" and all it does is create some new problem. I have to agree with many others in this forum; how do these releases get past Roxio's Q&A?

 

Thanks for any suggestions,

What setting are you using in Toast and what format is the video? You mention editing. What are the steps you used for editing?

 

If your source is a VIDEO_TS folder then you cannot burn a disc with Toast 10.0.7 unless you don't modify any of its contents. So you cannot deselect any of its contents. That is a bug in 10.0.7 and the workaround is to use an earlier version of Toast 10 for that process or to use the Media Browser to extract specific titles to the Video window with DVD video selected as the format.

I'm not sure what you mean by what setting are you using; the video files are TiVo files that I've downloaded from my series 3 DVR to the My TiVo Recordings folder. I do edit out the commercials using the edit button on the file, and then click the red record button. When that didn't work, I tried clicking on Save as Disc Image, but that also gives the same error.

 

Thank you for your assistance,

Good info. I'm presuming that Toast is set to DVD video in the Video window. What are the specs for the TiVo file that Toast displays under the title's name? I'm using Toast 10.0.7 with my TiVo transfers without problem but I want to test using videos that meet the same specs as yours.

 

Are you adding the video to the Toast window by using the Toast Media Browser or by clicking ToastIt in the TiVo Transfer application?

Yes, you are correct; I am in the DVD-Video tab in the Video section. Under the file name it says:

Video: MPEG-2, 528 x 480, 29.97 fps

Audio: Dolby Digital, Stereo, 48000 Hz

I'm not having that problem but it isn't working for me with Toast 10.0.7 for a different reason. When I do edits of a TiVo transfer file Toast ends up including only part of the edited video in resulting video DVD. So Toast 10.0.7 has some bug in this process. So even if we figured out the solution to your problem it still wouldn't be working right when the videos get edited with Toast Video Player.

Thanks for all your help! I have tried all the updates since 10.0.4, and it's the last one that seems to work for me. I guess I'll wait for 10.0.8 and see if that helps!!

 

Thanks again,
