Flawed Dvd Burning Process

Question

Hi,

I'm a newbie, and respectfully ask for someone to correct my DVD Burning process (see below) that is obviously flawed. I usine a MacBook Pro with 8GB Ram, Snow Leopard and most current version of Toast Titanium 10.

 

Previously I have captured EyeTV data (football games), edited out commercials, saved as Toast 10 Disc Image file, then burn data to disc

Now only about 15 minutes of data gets burned onto 1 disc and includes the material I want excluded???

 

My Burning process:

I locate the data in Media Browser;

Move the data into Toast Content area

Click "edit" once

Click edit button inside the new display that opens and plays the recorded file

Inside the playing file I click "fine" to allow for selecting the triangle shaped icons and spreading them to cover the data to ignore when burning

I go through the entire file strategically locating triangle icons throughout

I select Command "S" to save edited file (but there is no indication the command was completed)

Then I select "Save as Disc Image", name the file and wait...lately the image does not take long to save (about 20 minutes for a 2.5 hr program)

Next, I insert blank DVD (4.7 GB) and press the Red Button

Again, after about 20 minutes the finished product contains only about 15 minutes of data.

I've had similar results. Toast only includes the first one or few segments and leaves out the rest. A workaround I haven't yet tested is to change the Fine setting back to the normal setting in the editor window. That may take care of it. Since this is coming from EyeTV you can use EyeTV's editor to edit out the commercials so you don't need to do any editing in Toast.

 

This is a bug in Toast that has been reported to Roxio but I don't know when or if it will be fixed.
