Here is the plan: I am going to swich files over to a new computer without spending one cent. Although I have a measly 2gb memory stick, I currently have Toast Titanium 9, and I am trying to burn "photo discs" and "mp3 discs" which will give me the ability to put my files on my new computer. Here is the problem: Technology sucks. Every time I drag files from iPhoto to TT9, it fails, regardless of how much free space is on the actual disc. Here is what I do, step by step: 1) I open the pathetic TT9 application. 2) I click on the far left option, which is entitled "Data Disc." 3) I click on "Photo Disc." Please take into consideration that at the bottom, it says "Space remaining: 4.39GB." So I could easily fit my entire photo collection on this disc with a few gigs leftover, right? 4) We'll do one photo at a time for this short example. I drag a photo (not from iPhoto) from my freaking desktop onto the panel where it actually says, "drag pictures into this area." 5) I get excited, because everything seems to be going perfectly. 6) The picture I dragged onto the panel is 904kb, so I have a good 4.39gb still remaining on this disc, right? 7) I click the big red button, which I assume is "burn disc," so that I can have my one photo on my disc. 8) A window pops up that says "blah blah blah, # of copies, etc." 9) I click "Record." 10) A tiny window that says "Writing My Disc" comes up, and even goes all the way to 100% BUT WAIT! 11) Another pointless window pops up and says this... "THE DRIVE REPORTED AN ERROR: SENSE KEY = MEDIUM ERROR SENSE CODE = 0x73, 0x03" WTF. Then I get this: "LEAD-IN OR LEAD-OUT FAILED TO BE WRITTEN." And that is that. How pathetic. Was my 904kb .jpeg image too large? Maybe I should cut the image in half and burn it to two discs (kidding). In all seriousness, is there not an easier way to backup my files without using Toast Failtanium 9? I'm so sick of this crap, I honestly hate technology. I also want to backup my audio files, but that is a WHOLE 'nother story. Since iTunes quit burning discs long ago, should I create a thread about those complications as well? Sorry but I am absolutely furious. It is 2009, things should be much simpler by now. If you are able to help me, thank you in advance, kind sir.
