    I've searched through the forums but can only find threads which are a couple of years old and the solutions don't seem to work in tiger.... I'm trying to open (or burn) a image which has a .toast extension. I've tried loading Disk Utility and mounting it etc but it keeps saying that it doesn't recognise the file name. I don't have roxio toast either.

    Please help !

    Thanks.

    If I remember rightly you just have to change the extension to .iso.Lock the image and try it won't do any harm.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can only burn .toast files in Toast. No?

    I'm pretty sure you are correct. I .toast file will be mounted by Toast as a virtual cd ranther than a normal volume.

    K3B can burn the disc

    I had a .toast file that I really needed the data from, and I was able to burn the image to a DVD via K3B on linux. Just a thought.

    I did link to software here, but on closer inspection, it was for PPC only

    Others reckon (as said above) that changing the extension will work. Try renaming it to .img or .dmg. I didn't list .iso as you've already tried that
