    Crashes on start up. Thankfully it didn't replace the previous version.

    5.1.4 would not work for me in x.2.1
    5.2 works.
    if it didn't work, did you follow the tips for working with toast updates?

    Yeah, I had to do the same. To be safe, I deleted everything on the OS X partition that had to do with Toast before running the 5.2 update (I left a bare-bones 5.0 install on my very tiny OS 9.2 partiition). It looks like this is what you need to do in order to get Toast 5.2 to work correctly - or at all.

    You'd think that Roxio would mention this (at the very least - seeing as they can't make their installer trouble-free), but no. I do like the Toast app OK but, damn, Roxio's support is just terrible. Figuring out trying trashing all preferences and .dat files are no big deal for us savy Macrumors-types, but I can imagine the frustration that is occurring as we speak, as the majority of Toast users are attempting to update and all they get are crashing and error messages - with zero help and assistance from Roxio.

    Not a good way to run a company, but seeing that Toast really has no competition on the Mac platform, well, of course they get away with it. I always thought that a fully loaded CD/DVD burning suite would make a great iApp. And probably not too difficult for Apple to create, seeing as the basic components (Disc Burner, Disk Copy) are already present in OS X. Not that I expect to see this, but it would be a nice alternative to Toast.
