Hi, I'm having crash issues with Toast too often. First, I've been trying for a couple of days to burn a video DVD from a DivX file, as normally supported by the software. Toast accepts the divx file, starts to encode the video file - and then disappears after a while. It just, simply, disappears. Then it's not possible to restart it, unless I log out and re-log in. I used Toast 7.1.2, thought it could be too old and * bought * yesterday the new version 8, for the same result I think the problem appears between the end of the encoding and the beginning of the burning process. The DVD is left blank. I use the DVD burner of my iMac 24". Any idea / suggestions? Second, generally speaking, Toast 7.1.2 has a tendancy to disappear when you hide it, and not come back. Then you have to force-quit etc... I'll have to use the new version more intensively to be sure it's still there, but seeing that some of the same problems from version 7.x are still there... I think I made a mistake buying Toast 8.0. It seems to be the same software as Toast 7.x, with a few exceptions like a new interface and Blu-Ray support. Rats. Thanks for any help, Arnaud.
