Does Version 11 Support Hfs Standard Burning?

Question

I have version 8 of Toast Titanium and it will burn CD's using HFS Standard (not HFS+ or HFS Extended). I use this capability to burn CD's for use with MacOS 7.5 and with an Apple IIgs running GS/OS 6.0.1.

 

I can't find anything on the site indicating whether version 11 still has this capability. I'd like to upgrade, but it will be worthless if I can't burn to HFS Standard.

Yes, but you first need to create a temporary partition (Toast Utilities menu) that is formatted as HFS Standard. This creates a disc image on the desktop into which you can drag what you want to burn. Then use the Mac Volume setting in the Toast Data window to burn the volume.

Okay, I purchased Toast 11, installed just fine, ran the check updates to make sure it was the latest version. I went to Utilities and selected the create temporary partition as you suggested and selected HFS standard. This creates and mounts a partition in Finder. However, if I try and drag any files to the mounted partition the Finder shows the circle with the slash through it meaning it won't or can't copy to that location. Am I not supposed to use Finder for getting files to the partition Toast created?

 

I don't know if it matters, but I'm running MacOS 10.8.2

I just checked and got the same result. The permissions are for read only. However, I found a workaround. Instead of creating a HFS Standard partition, create a HFS Extended partition. When it mounts the permissions allow read & write. Add your content in the Finder. Now choose Mac Volume as the format in the Toast Data window. Select the mounted partition and burn the disc. The burned disc will be HFS Standard.
