Toast 10.0.8 (547) Crashes On Osx 10.6.5

Question

Hello,

 

I was hoping someone would be able to assist me to get Toast 10.0.8 (547) working.

 

I have just purchased (download) 10.0.8 and installed it on my new iMAC (i7) running OSX 10.6.5. I am only new to Mac having just switched from PC (Windows)

 

I installed 10.0.8 ok, then started the program and completed the registration process (all ok).

 

I then went to create an Audio CD. I selected the files, selected CD text then hit burn. At this point the program crashed.

 

An error report was generated and sent to Apple.

 

I restarted the program and tried the procedure above once again, and had to re-enter the registration info once again also, but as before Toast again crashed.

 

I restarted the program once again and checked the options for the recorder. The virtual recorder was selected. I clicked on the down arrow to select the internal CD/DVD burner, and Toast crashed again.

 

I then downloaded a couple of free CD burner programs ( to test my hardware) and they worked well and burnt the CD's.

 

I also purchased a 15" i7 MacBook Pro with my iMAC, so I tried Toast on it. The MBPRO is running OSX 10.6.5 (same as the iMAC) and exactly the same thing happened on the MacBook as the iMAC, is TOAST crashed.

 

Has anyone got Toast 10.0.8 working on new Mac hardware running OSX 10.6.5) ?.

 

I checked various forums and it seems there are a lot of problems in this area. A user on one forum suggested a disk permission repair, so I did that but the problem still remains.

 

For now I will use the free (but effective) disk burning programs.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

Toast 10.0.8 works in Snow Leopard and I've burned many audio CDs with this combination. What likely happened is that one of your source audio files is a compressed file that has some kind of error. When Toast encountered the error it crashed rather than handling it more delicately. If you used iTunes to convert the audio file to AIFF and used that version instead Toast likely would have worked without issue. If I'm correct in my assessment, what happened in your case is uncommon and you should rarely encounter it. But it does happen.

Hi Tsantee

Thanks for the reply.

 

My problem is more basic than this.

 

I start TOAST, select menu item Recorder-->Recorder settings to set the recorder from the Virtual CD drive to the physical drive and ToAST 10.0.8 crashes. It does this also on my new Macbook Pro i7 also.

 

I can quite happily burn cd's with iTunes and a number of freeware and sharware disk burners, I only experience this issue with TOAST10.

 

Can you suggest another good TOAST like program I could use.?

 

Thanks

Neil

I'm sorry but I don't understand. What is a Virtual CD drive? When Toast launches it automatically seeks out the built-in optical drive or the last drive that Toast used if there are multiple ones connected. I suggest trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in the User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunching. Is Toast located in your Applications folder?

Hello again,

 

The virtual drive is a driver that simulates a CD drive allowing an image to be copied to the hard drive.

 

I contacted ROXIO support and they guided me thru removing TOAST then deleting the Plist and preferences file, disable the virtual drive and re-install TOAST.

 

It now works.

 

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

 

- Cheers

Neil
