I must be missing something. I am trying to make a mix CD made up of individual tracks from different prerecorded CDs (favorites of 06) on my brand new macbook, using Toast 8. For reasons I can't figure out, it's not working. Oddly, the user's guide never specifically mentions taking tracks directly off of a CD to make a "audio CD", though you can access them through media browser, or just drag them from the CD to Toast, or navigate from the "+" button in toast. No matter how I transfer the tracks, the tracks look like they transfer, but the only sound that plays is a loud hiss -- both in Toast preview and on a CD player when I try to record. Am I missing a secret step that's so obvious it doesn't need to go into the user's guide or something? For some reason the tracks are imported as AIFF files -- shouldn't they be redbook files or whatever they call the files playable on a CD player? I'd think that shouldn't matter, since if you choose to make an audio CD any type of file should convert to the type of file that will play in a CD player, right? Is there something special I have to do? I know the superdrive works, and that toast can do music CD to CD transfer, because I have successfully copied a prerecorded CD. Any ideas? This is the main reason I bought Toast, and making mix CDs has been about the easiest thing you could do with the dinky burn software on every wintel PC I ever owned. I'm a bit shocked that this is not working on my mac, with Toast.
