Spin Doctor An Toast 11

Question

When using toast 10 I am unable to transfer tunes directly into iTunes so as a work around I drag them into toast. I dropped them under the convert button using the audio option. I am trying to use the new Spindoctor in Toast 11 and again I can't send tunes directly into iTunes -The program crashes. so i wanted to use the same work around but I am unable to drag and drop then under the convert button. I can drag and drop under the audio button but under that button All I can do is create a CD

Any help Would be appreciated.

I hope you kept the older CD Spin Doctor. The new one has many issues. There is, however, a workaround for getting the tracks to iTunes. What you need to do is send them to Toast. After they appear in Toast's Audio CD window choose Save as Disc Image from the File menu. Next, choose Audio Files in the Toast Convert window and drag in the .sd2f file that Toast saved. You now can send those to iTunes by clicking the Convert button.

Here are the results today. I tried spin doctor in toast 11. I had a download of 7 songs. I divided them, labeled them and then was unable to send them to toast in the convert option so then I tried the audio option that worked yesterday and today it wouldn't let me drag the songs in. So I clicked the iTunes button in Spindoctor and it seemed to be working but crashed after sending the first two of the seven songs. So I deleted the first two and tried again and the program crashed.

I thought I could keep the first two songs but when looking at them in iTunes the size was about half of the size that they should have been so I deleted them and went back to using spindoctor in Toast 10.

I have both Toast 10 and Toast 11 installed.

At one time I deleted both toast 10 and 11 and did a clean install of 11 (I used a document provided by Roxio telling me what and where to delete files)and had a lot of issues so I then installed 10 again and went back to using it.

I could try this again I have the directions for a clean install printer out on my desk but hesitate as it didn't work out very well last time.

I forgot to add I am on Mac Os 10.8.2 and on the very latest Toast update (11.1) and Spindoctor Update (1.01)

Thanks for your input.

I just did a test and it worked for me, sort of. After marking and naming the tracks in Spin Doctor I clicked the Toast icon near the top right of the window. I already had Toast open and Audio CD selected as the format in the Audio window, but that shouldn't be necessary. After the tracks appeared in Toast, Spin Doctor crashed. In Toast, Save as Disc Image was grayed out in the File menu so I selected "Disc Image" in the Destination popup at the bottom of the Toast window. I then clicked the big button which was now labeled "Save." My next step was to choose Audio Files as the setting in the Toast Convert window. I dragged in the .sd2f file that was saved and the individual tracks appeared in the Toast window. I then could click the big button and choose an export destination.

 

You don't need to delete Toast 10 to use Toast 11. However, I believe the audio capture extension used by Toast 10's CD Spin Doctor gets removed when Toast 11 is installed. That version of CD Spin Doctor should work except for the system audio capture. The line-in audio capture and all the marking and filtering shouldn't be affected.
