    So, I have Toast, and I have a .toast file that contains the Install DVD for Leopard that I made when I got 10.5.0 to keep as a backup. Well, I want to reinstall OSX on the iMac downstairs, but I cant seem to be able to make an install DVD from the .toast file.

    How do I do that? The computer just seems to be burning the .toast file to the DVD. I hope Im explaining that well... It doesnt seem to be making an Install DVD, just a DVD with one file (.toast).

    Suggestions? Help?

    Thanks!

    What you are asking about is software piracy.

    Thank you for your help. I *own* Leopard. I have an install disc. The disc is physically located in my appartement in Paris. I am in Los Angeles.

    I made a disk image of the Install DVD in case I needed to reinstall it. Well, as it turns out, I do need to reinstall it on my iMac here. As far as I know, this is not piracy. I own it.

    Change the Extention

    Just open the .toast file in Toast and burn it to a blank DL DVD. Make sure your in the copy tab of Toast. The .toast extension is just Toasts version of an ISO. Next time you make a copy of a disc in Toast change the extension from a .toast to a .iso when it's asking you to save the image as... That was you'll have a .iso instead of a .toast

    how is making a backup dvd to the disk you own piracy?

    if the disc were to get scratched, do you think apple would just give him another for free even though he owns a license? not a chance
