All Sorts Of Bugs With Macbook Pro/lion-Burn Speed, Etc.

Question

I am using Toast 11 with a Macbook Pro, Lion OS....it is sooooo buggy!! when i set the burn speed for 1x, as i often do to make master CDs, i notice that when it starts to burn, it says the average burn speed is 7x....really!? why!? if i set if for 1x, why is it not(apparently) burning at 1x?

 

also--tried using the cross fades and such, but they seem to maybe work, or maybe not, depending on how Toast is feeling.....why the inconsistency?

 

Cd text is another winner.....if i hit 'apply to all' on one thing, sometimes it will apply to all in other fields as well...for instance, i hit 'apply to all' for the artist field, and the song field also changed on all the songs....then, when i went in to correct the songs, every time i typed in the name of a song, it applied to all the rest, until i closed the app and started it again.....??!!??

 

the fast forward and reverse buttons don't function correctly all the time.....sometimes, when holding down the button to FF or Reverse within a song, it works, and other times it doesn't --- the buttons will only move between songs, and that's it......no FF or R within a single song...it is more problematic in Reverse than FF.....

 

does anybody else experience these issues.....? i'm thinking this version is a total pile of crap at this point......

The drive and the media both have a say in what are acceptable writing speeds. If you set a lower speed, then the negotiated writing speed will be the closest available valid speed. Many discs available today simply do not allow writing at 1x speed.

 

I don't know about your other experiences/questions.

cool...thank you for that response....i did find other similar responses to this, and of course, i have to wonder if either of my burners will allow for 1x burning.....

If either the drive or the disk don't permit 1x writing, then Toast probably shouldn't offer it.

Toast shows the burn speeds available for a specific disc in a specific drive after the disc is inserted and recognized by Toast. Also be aware that drives are variable-speed burners. They start out slower than the selected speed while writing the inner part of the disc and increase speed as they move to the outer part, reaching full speed only when nearing the outer edge.
