    Whenever I burn a DVD with toast 5.2.1 I get a verification problem.Something like "Sector XXX unreadable. Verification failed" I read the thead that Blappy posted on August 2003. He was having the same problem. I couldnt find any answer about that. Could
    anybody help me?

    I am using Apple 2X, and didn't have any problem until few weeks a go. I have OSX 10.2.8.

    Is my DVD broken. should I call apple care?

    This situation freaks me out, because I am making back ups of my data, and now I don't trust these back ups! And my hardrives are so full that they can explode soon.. javascript:smilie(':)')

    any suggestion will be appreciated.

    you might want to check with Roxio, you might need an update for the software to work with 10.2.8. You might want to check some of the other threads as a lot of people have had mucho problems with this softare update (10.2.8)

    Verification Issue with toast

    I am having the same issue with DVD verification after writing to Apple 2X DVD-R. Each one failed when verifying the disc. When I use other generic media to burn with, or use Finder to burn a DVD it seems to work fine.

    Has anyone figured out why this is happening. Is this a hardware failure?

    Any help would be great!

    Toast, and other programs

    I am thinking of getting a CD burning program but there is one thing I really want to have: the ability to write to the CDs from other programs, at least I think that's what I want!

    For example, if I burn a folder onto the CD and then want to synchronise the folder with one on my hard drive, it should be able to write in both directions. In other words, are there any programs that format CDs so that they are not read only?

    Roxio's Cd creator does this on the PC, does Toast do this?

    Yes, this is from Toast's Help file

    I'm not quite sure this is the same as what I want to do: I don't want just to be able to add more files or folders to what's already on the disk, but to be able to delete and overwrite files in the same way you can do with a floppy or zip disk. Is this possible with Toast or another program?
