    what version of toast are you running? Similar problem occurred to me when I ran an older version of toast, when I tried to burn a disc it hangs. But that only happened to me once and when I upgraded the toast to 9.0.3 and up it worked like a charm.

    Hope this helps.

    Keep pressing the "T" key rapidly and whatever is causing the squeak should get worn away.

    As for the DVD burner - have you tried burning a disc using Disk Utility? If that works, then your DVD drive is fine. It'll most likely be a Toast issue.

    It is most likely toast. Again, try burning a DVD. It may also be the superdrive, but unlikely. These problems have occurred before with the apple superdrives, however. Anyway, as for the T button, take it in to the apple store and have them swap out the key. They have been very helpful on issues with laptop keyboards for me (got my PowerBook N, V, L keys replaced after they wore down).

    Toast 8 didn't burn DVDs on my new MBP. However, after installing 9.0 it worked fine.

    No idea.

    Try burning the DVD in the Finder rather than using Toast. As mentioned earlier Toast may be having issues.

    A Nightmare??? A bit on the exaggeration side don't ya think? Your post title made it seem like your MBP had a meltdown or you lost all of your files.
