Selective Update Installation

Question

My 11.0.4 Toast 11 finally started to crash. I uninstalled it and reinstalled from the disc. When I opend it up Toast 11 to edit a video I was asked to update to 11.1. It crashed even worse. Can I update only to 11.0.4? I have the old dmg files, but are unsure how install them. I tried to drag them into the Applications but still it reported as 11.0.0 when I opened Toast 11.

Something could be wrong other than the Toast app. As for updates, the latest version (11.2) is only available through Roxio's Software Updates page. Ignore if the page says it is 11.1 because it actually is 11.2.

 

When you run the Toast installer it creates a Toast Titanium folder in your applications folder. You can rename the existing folder to keep the installer from replacing your previous version of Toast. Don't use 11.0.0 because it is hugely buggy.

 

When does Toast crash?

It was crashing after encoding and starting to write to disc. I attached one error message that I got. I'll test further and let you know what happens when. So does Toast 11.2 work very well with IOS 10.6.8? I don't want to make the move to Mountain Lion.

I'd keep Toast 11.0.4 as well as install 11.2 to see which works best with a particular project. You can keep the old Toast by renaming its folder in the Finder before installing 11.2. It's odd that it is crashing at that point. Choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. Then select the resulting .toast file using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window to burn the disc. That may work.

Its to late to save 11.0.4 it was uninstalled. It seems there is more to the story. I tried iDVD and got a multiplexing error trying to burn to dvd that way. Could something be wrong with my iMac? It was purchased in 2010.

It's more likely there is something wrong with the video file. Toast can crash during encoding if it encounters a break in the video, or sometimes Toast merely shortens the video at the point of the break. The error you got with iDVD suggests some kind of break.

 

You might try using MPEG Streamclip to "Fix Timecode Breaks." It may be that won't apply to your video but it is worth a try. MPEG Streamclip is freeware and pretty useful.

 

You also might try using Toast's Convert window to save the source video as DV. This may repair the problem so that you can then use the DV export to make the DVD.

I tried writing a data file to a dvd, and got a error "0x80020022" (disc communication problem). Backed up the computer (external drive) and tried repairing the disc permissions, didn't work. Thinking about a complete format and reinstall. I can read from the dvd but not write to it.

Sorry you're having this trouble. The built-in Mac optical drives are low quality and many of them fail over time. You can try a different brand of blank discs and try an optical drive cleaning disc. External optical drives are low cost and that may be what you need.
