Album Covert Art Is Not Complete In The Tracklist Burning A Music Dvd

Question

I made a track (song) selection with iTunes (Macbook Pro OSX 10.8.2) with 15 titles. Two album pictures (cover art) are missing. They are in the tracklist of iTunes but not transferred in the track window of Toast Titanium 11. (also with a slight other selection of tracks, 2 are missing eg not transferred) I checked if it has something to do with the audio format but this is, as far as I can see, not the case. I tried to import the coverart with the edit function of Toast (drag and drop to the window stating "drag album artwork here" but I got the message "file format is not supported". I used a jpg format picture (I don't see what other picture format is applicable, nothing mentioned on this topic in the manual)

 

It really puzzles me, I could'n find an answer in the Toast manual and also not with Google.

If anybody knows what to do I will appreciate, I am stuck here.

That's puzzling to me, too. It does accept .jpg images. Try opening the image using the application Preview and choose Save as... to write it again as a new .jpg or .png. See if that works. As for the track not transferring, did you use the Toast Media Browser to access the tracks? If you put the tracks in an iTunes playlist and then launch Toast you should see that playlist in the Toast Media Browser. See if transferring from there makes any difference. I don't know why it didn't transfer. Check its file name for unusual characters.

I tried something following your advice. Thanks a lot.

 

I open iTunes and the playlist. Then I open Toast Titanium 11.1 but the playlist is not showing up in the browser of Toast. I can import the playlist (drag and drop). Only as I mentioned two out 15 album coverart are missing. I tried also to change the extension with Preview (export and then giving the picture another name and I select for instance in the menu png) but still the message "format not suported" (the same message after drag and drop a jpg picture in the edit section-->playlist with the box with "drag album art here")

 

Then I tried to figure out why some individual tracks I transfer with drag and drop to the browser of Toast are with and why some tracks are without album coverart. I cannot figure it out. `With some titles the album coverart is there with others not (first I thought may be the coverart I made myself (scanning with a flatbed the original cover of the album/CD) is not accepted. But this is not the case (I did import/ drag and drop 20 different tittles to the browser to be sure, because it is hard to remember which album art "I did myself" and which did ITunes.

 

From the list of 15 titles 2 of them are without album covert art (although they have album coverart in the original I Tunes playlist, where they came from). I guess I have to live with that. I am still puzzled but no clue where to look for a solution. (there are of course more important things to worry about). Thanks again, may be you will come up with a second thought. I will of course check this post.

It's a mystery to me. My only other thought is that Toast is picky about any audio, image or video file that it thinks is corrupt in some way. The Mac often doesn't notice small corruptions because the viewing or playing application uses error correction. I know I've had to convert some .mp3 files to .aiff before they could work in Toast while others were fine. The advantage of saving an image or track in a different format is the new file won't have the corruption of the original.

 

The troubles you're encountering are unusual. I'm sorry this first effort at a music DVD hasn't gone well.

Thanks a lot. If I have time I will do some more experiments to figure this out. Your explanation sounds good, but it is hard to find out if a simple cover art picture is corrupt in one way or another.(I will try once more to save the picture as you told, because I was not sure if my procedure was all right)

Also I can make a scan myself of a CD cover and try to import it into the browser window of Taost.(in this way I am sure about the origin of the data)

But I tried this already and the cover picture was OK in iTunes but missing after drag and drop into Toast (also by means of the edit ((playlist)) option it wasn't accepted.)

Let's summarise it in this way: Live is full of mysteries and so is Toast Titanium!
