    Hi guys, I just wanted know if any of you are having problems burning disks with Toast 10 titanium with Mac OSX 10.6.1 ?

    Toast 10 takes a while to open ... it gets to open after a bit ... I then can add files for it to burn on a dual layer DVD .... but when I press the Burn button ... the program ends up sending me continuous messages of it can not burn and repeats this message in a never ending cycle ...

    I just cant get it to burn DVD's anymore !! :(

    Anyone else ?

    Or ... anyone else have a good software for DVD burning on OSX 10.6.1 ?

    thx for the help

    good to see I am not the only one having this problem :eek:

    Roxio ( the ones behind Toast ) seem to be very quiet on this snow leopard issue ... with no new updates since OSX 10.6.1 launch ....

    Any other software I can use to burn my DVD's ?

    Mine burns fine, albeit once in a while the audio sync is off (which essentially made me switch to streaming to the 360 in my dorm). Optical media is dead*


    * for me

    It would be dead for me too ... but we all need backups of our movies and files ;) We never know when a HDD failure can happen, that's when disk base backups is fool proof solution for archiving data :)

    I wasted a blank CD on Mac OSX 10.6.1 Snow Leopard using Toast 10 trying to burn some data onto disc. I kept on getting the message telling me that burning was unsuccessful:mad:

    Fortunately, I had Mac OSX 10.4.11 Tiger on another partition so I used Toast 10 without any problems:)

    Looks like Snow leopard doesn't like DL DVDs. I tried Burn with a 7.48 GB .iso to Dual Layer DVD. Result: Fail. After only a few minutes of burning, I get an error message and the disc auto-ejects. =(

    My optical drive: HL-DT-ST DVDRW GSA-S10N
    OS: 10.6.1
    Tested DL DVD burning (Failed with): Disk Utility/Finder, Wondershare DVD Copy, Burn

    Neither of my MBPs (3,1 and 5,1) will burn DVD+Rs (single layer) currently for either SimpleBurn or Burn in 10.6.1. The 5,1 complains that the media is not supported (Sony DVD+R). The 3,1 starts the burn and then quits after creating a new coffee table protector.

    I used Toast Titanium 8.0.5 on a Macbook Pro to copy the System install DVD for the Macbook - using the built-in drive - running 10.6 (not 10.6.1), and a DVD-R DL disk (forgot the brand but probably Taiyo Yuden's "That's DVD". The resultant dual layer DVD boots the Macbook fine and installs the system with no errors.
    I know it makes no sense for an old, non-supported version to work when the latest version doesn't, but that's the way it happened. :D
    Have not had the need to burn anyother CDs or DVDs yet.

    Possible Fix

    I had this problem and discovered that a fresh account had no trouble burning, even when I was logged in on the "bad" account. After many (many) coasters, I got good DVD burns from both the Finder and Toast 9 after I deleted my /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist and rebooted. (The rebooting may have been unnecessary and it may have worked after a logout/login, but I was tired of making coasters). I'll be able to report more after some more testing tonight. Hope this helps.

    Snow Leopard & Toast 10 = fails! Leopard+Toast 10 = works.

    My DVRs (Pioneer 112D and 106D) had worked fine under Leopard 10.5.8 in a Mac Pro 1,1. However, when I upgraded to Snow Leopard 10.6.5, both my drives would not work with Roxio's Toast 10.0.8 or with Apples built in burn!

    So I looked around the web...for 3 days. I found that you could DVRFlash the DVR drives with the latest firmware 1.28 and kernel, but also found out that Mac OS doesn't care what firmware is installed, they should work.

    Apple has some notes on their site, but nothing to fix this Toast/Snow Leopard break. There was nothing on the Toast support site.

    My fixes:
    1. Tried to DVRFlash the 112D drive with the new firmware/kernel. To no avail - Google it and read up, it's lengthy but start here:
    http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=38756

    2. Tried this sequence: a) delete com.apple.dvr.plist file b) SMC my machine (shut down machine, unplug power, hold start button for 10 seconds- you may want to unplug everything, I just did the power cord) c) PRAM reset; restart holding the comm+option+P+R for 3 chimes d) download and install combo update 10.6.5 from the Apple website

    All to no avail. Now have 7 coasters. I really don't believe it's in the media choice as these drives worked fine under Leopard with Sony CD-R disks.

    Finally, downloaded Burn to test...and it worked in the Pioneer 112D but not the 106D (this drive must have a hardware issue).

    I did notice that even when a disk looked like it burned correctly, it made the Finder quit and restart. So, I did what is suggested here and deleted the Finder prefs and relaunched (via force quit comm+option+escape). I don't know if this solved anything as Burn is working and I really don't need any more coasters:)
