Toast Will Not Mount A Disk Image After Updating From Osx 10.7.3 To 10.7.4

Question

Thought I'd post this after getting absolutely nowhere with Corel support.

The default apple disk image mounter still works but using the 'Toast It", "Mount It"

contextual menu items or the "mount disk image" Toast menu item all lead to nothing.

 

If you try these and then use the apple disk image mounter you get a message saying,

"resource temporarily unavailable". The computer must be restarted so you can then resort

back to the default apple disk image mounter.

 

I have two macs, one with Toast 9 and the other with Toast 11 and this has only occurred since updating to

OsX 10.7.4.

Corel Support do not even appear to understand what I'm saying.

I can still mount Toast disc images in OS 10.7.4 using mount it. But I've only tried this with disc images that were created while also in 10.7.4. Tell me more about your experience and findings so I can try to replicate that on my Macs.

Hi Digital Guru. Thanks for the reply.

Am a long term Toast user through a variety of versions and often use the 'mount it' contextual menu item. After updating to OsX 10.7.4. I found that Toast would no longer handle iso/toast

disk images even though the default apple disk image mounter had no problem with them. It doesn't matter whether they are disk images created under 10.7.4. or earlier.

If I use the 'mount it' contextual menu item or 'mount disk image' from within Toast, nothing appears to happen, but, as stated in my first post, if I then resort to the apple mounter a box comes up saying 'resource temporarily unavailable'. To use the default apple mounter I have to restart the computer. This seems to me as though Toast is trying to mount the image but can't and just keeps trying.

If after restart I drag an image into Toast or use the 'toast it' menu item, the standard mac dialogue box comes up saying I have inserted a blank DVD etc...

I can still just as easily use the default apple mounter - but I liked the convenience of 'mount it'.

Have tried deleting the toast preference files and reinstalling with no result. Corel Support is like talking to a very thick brick wall.

I've checked with earlier-created .toast disc images and the Mount It contextual menu is working for me. Go to your User>Library>Contextual Menus folder and trash the toastit plugin (it is both toast it and mount it). (You access that Library by holding down the Option key in the Finder's Go menu). Now relaunch Toast and run the Toast setup assistant in the Help menu. This should give you the option to install Toast it and Mount it. This way you'll have the most recent version. I'm presuming you are running Toast 11.0.4 or later.

Hi Guru. Thanks again for your help. There was no ToastIt.plugin in the User/Library/Contextual Menu Items folder, but there was a ToastIt it.service in User/Library/Services.

Anyway, I tried doing the same procedure, but had the same, sad and sorry outcome.

My mistake. The one I have in the contextual menu items folder is from an older version of Toast. I also have the Toastit.service file. I removed the old plugin to see if that had any effect and it doesn't. I still can use Mount It in the Services part of the contextual menu to mount .toast image files. Aside from what you did to reinstall that file I don't know what to suggest. It seems something is interfering with it launching (the Finder describes the Toastit.service file as an Application). Mine, by the way, is version 2.0 (build 100)) dated April 30, 2012. That has me thinking it came from the Toast 11.1 beta that patarox links to in another topic in this forum.

I seem to be having the same problem as Sledge with my Mac Pro running 10.7.4. That is, "Mount It" is not working. I just so happened to have a backup startup volume running 10.7.3 and there was no problem there, Funny thing is, I have a MacBook Pro running 10.7.4 and "Mount It" works fine there. On MacBook Pro I'm running Toast 11.0.4 only, but on Mac Pro I'm running both 11.0.4, plus 11.1 beta, so I'm wondering if beta install has something to do with.

 

If anyone figures out a fix, please post here.

 

Thx.
