Toast 10 Freezing Under Mavericks

Question

I can't scientifically prove it, but my observation is that Toast 10 is having some trouble under Mavericks, trouble I did not see when using the software with Lion, for instance. Like so: I have no trouble burning DVDs and CDs, but very often if I leave Toast open after a burning session, it eventually freezes; I see it showing the spinning beach ball and I have to Force Quit. And then, after that Force Quit, I find that Toast will no longer open again no matter what I do, whether it's clicking on its icon in Applications folder or in the Recent Items list or the contextual menu. I have to fully restart my computer if I want to use Toast again.

 

In a word, this is most annoying. I really do believe this started with my installation of Mavericks. Anyone else seeing this behavior?

 

I am on a Mac Pro.

I suggest trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder. They sometimes become corrupt after a system update or upgrade. It's worth a try to see if this resolves the problem.

I trashed those plist and prefs files and restarted the computer. Now, Toast launches, almost: Its icon shows up in the dock, the program asks for access to my contacts (why it needs those, I have no idea), and the menu headings show up across top of the screen. But ... no GUI in sight. If I switch to another app, or Finder, I cannot get back to Toast; it's in the Dock, it's in the Command-Tab display of open apps, but it's not accessible. And when I look at the Force Quit menu, I see that, no surprise, Toast is not responding. So, I Force-quit it and try again and ... same thing.

 

Frustrating.

I've downloaded a new copy of Toast and installed it. Will see if that helps. It seemed that somehow the Toast code itself was getting damaged, which is rare in my experience.

I'm having the same problem. Reinstalling Toast 10 did not solve it. I have to restart my iMac to get it to open (sometimes).When I do get it to open and attempt to record a video which is 3.96gb, I get the message that (there is not enough free space on this disc: 4.72gb are needed, 4.38gb are available).

Have you trashed the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder and relaunched Toast. That library is accessed by holding down the Option key when selecting the Go menu in the Finder. As for the disc space issue, I don't know what format the source video is, but I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. Then burn the resulting .toast file to disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. Toast will utilize its fit-to-DVD process if needed to fit the disc.
