Remaining Space

Question

Hi there,

 

I'm new here and I have a problem with writing a CD with toast (and with iTunes as well).

Even before I put in a blank CD it says: 'remaining space 96,6 mb'

So when I want to write a CD (audio or data) it will spread it over more than one CD.

I already tried with throwing away the preferences but that didn't help.

Can anybody here help me out?

 

Thanx in advance

Ruud

I'm confused. If it reports there is space remaining then it shouldn't require more than one disc. Is CD selected as the disc type next to the space required bar? What does the text say to the left of the space remaining. If it says there is more than 700 mB required then it also will report that more than one disc is needed. Keep the total content under 702.8 mB.

Hi Eugene,

 

I added a screenshot from my Toast so you can see that the total space remaining is 96,6 mb.

As soon as I put in 3 songs (in total 10 min) it will devide it on 2 CD's

Now I see. That's an error that's nearly always fixed by trashing the Toast prefs and plist files and relaunching Toast. Since you've already done that I can only suggest doing it again. Make sure Toast is closed before trashing those files. My guess is that Toast will ignore that scale when actually burning the CD but it shouldn't be reported wrong in the first place.

I tried it... even restarted computer after that, but didn't help :(

this is the result... 132 mb over 2 CD's -_-

Look in all the Libraries to see if there is any other Toast plist or prefs files somewhere. Go to the Roxio Software Updates page and download the latest update to replace your existing Toast 11 installation. It will install Toast 11.0.2 so you'll end up getting the notice to update to 11.0.3 again. If you choose Save as Disc Image I'm pretty sure you'll find that it all goes on one disc regardless of what the window states. But this shouldn't be happening at all.
