Missing Some Minutes In My Converted Video

Question

good afternoon everyone,

 

i'm a newbie who just started using toast 11 frequently. recently, i converted a wedding VCD (with a .DAT extension) that is 1 hour long using toast 11. i converted it to .MOV to make it easier when i work with the file. but when it finished converting, the converted file missed its last 15 minutes. it just stopped in the middle, making my video became only 45 minutes. did anyone previously have the same problem like me? what should i do?

 

thank you for the support.

The usual reason Toast does this is because of a break in the source video's stream which causes Toast to believe that is the end of the video. I don't know a good workaround. If the Edit button is available you might try it to see if you can select just the segment that wasn't converted. Maybe some other app such as MPEG Streamclip can convert that segment or fix the break.

I'm having the same data-drop problem. The last few minutes of files that come to Toast via Tivo Transfer are missing. In a 60 minute program about 5-10 minutes are cut off at the end. In a 2 hour program, more like the last 20 minutes. For example, in the Media pane a show will be listed as 59:58, but dragging it into the Burn window it shows up as 51:00 minutes and that's all that burns. When I try to play the disc (or image) when it gets to that point it loops the playback to the beginning of the program. This is essentially ruining every disc I try to burn. Same thing happens if I create a Disc Image instead of burning media. I've tried relaunching Toast, throwing away the Toast plist, re-transferring the file - nothing works. PLEASE HELP!!post-102695-0-62429700-1403639318_thumb.png

Does anyone have any insight into this Toast/TiVo Transfer problem? Tivo records the entire program, it transfers to my Mac thoroughly (I can see all of it via DVD Player), but Tivo will not burn the entire file to either DVD or disc image.
