Applications :: Toast Titanium 8 Burning - How To Burn Mov File
Jan 24, 2008
I have a .mov file from iMovie that I would like to burn on to a DVD. I am using the latest version of Toast Titanium 8 (which I bought as an update from Toast 6 in the hope that it would fix the problem) but I keep coming up with Error messages.
I followed the directions on this website:[IRL] It didn't play in my DVD player because they say to burn it as a data disc. I dont know that if I used the Video TS option that subtitles will still work.
I bought Roxio Toast Titanium 5.0 and downloaded the 5.2.1 update so I could burn some DVDs on my iMac (which is about 2 months old). I set it to record a video_ts file from one of the DVD discs that I've ripped to the hard drive. It records the files and verifies, then it says that the DVD was burned fine. The problem is that when I try it on any DVD player, the disc will not play. It won't play in a stand-alone DVD player, on the iMac nor on my PC. I checked what was burned, and all the files were recorded fine. I've gone through 6 discs with the same result. The only time it recorded anything viewable, was when I set it for "disc copy" and even then, the entire DVD was not recorded because of some error and when I popped it in the player, the portion that was recorded was very pixelated and unwatchable.
I'm backing up loads of files to DVD, I dragged all the files into Toast and started burning, letting Toast organise the files across multiple DVD. On DVD 11 of 18, there were some drive errors, and Toast crashed.
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 have access to many microsoft software packages from my school and some classes require me to have certain software and some is PC only. So obviously i need windows on my mac. So they have Windows 7 Professional.
I've got two internal optical drives in my Mac Pro: the stock super drive: OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7170A and an added Blu-Ray burner:HL-DT-ST BD-RE GGW-H20L I use Toast 10 for disc burning. I've been getting very consistent burn problems with both drives, where Toast hangs in the early stages of burning (usually at lead-in I think). Blu-Ray discs and CD-Rs are burning fine. I assumed I just had a bad batch of DVD-Rs, but I just bought a new batch of Taiyo-Yuden discs and am still having trouble. I realize this could be a Toast or media problem, but am posting here just in case anyone thinks it might have to do with my Mac Pro.
Info: Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2.66GHz dual core Intel
how to back up to a CD, from where to back up and how to reload the back up to the hard drive. I'm particularly concerned because it seems that I lost several months of Quicken data from my hard drive.
when I go the DVD-Video section I put all the videos I wanted in and the chapters/Menu I wanted etc.
Then it said that I had a mixture of both PAL and NTSC (or however you spell it) which I already knew and was fine with because I wanted to test out what my PS3 could read and could not between files of .mkv, .avi, and .mp4 (ironically it play/read everything but the .mp4).
why Toast Titanium increase file size? I'm trying to put a few episodes of an anime onto a regular DVD disc. Now the file is 563.1MB, but when I put it in Toast in the DVD-Video section, it tells me that 1.99GB on 1 disc.
Having problems importing audio files from itunes to toast. When imported the file becomes distorted and impossible to listen to . Sound file is fine in itunes but something is happening in the transition.
I copied a cd on toast titanium 7 then dropped in a blank to make a copy. To my horror a grey-ish "curtain" descended across the monitor, dimming the screen. After a few seconds a dialog box in several languages came up "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button or press restart." I pressed the power button which shut it down. Started it in about 10 minutes and things SEEM fine.
It is supposed to be the best burning package on mac. But I doubt it. I convert videos to dvd-video format using the absolutely brilliant windows7 application convertxtodvd. Please dont tell me to use a mac application instead of it. I tried it many times, there were always several problems(slow speed, subs etc). This is not the case here.
So, I want these dvd-videos in Video_ts format, to be burned in dvd disks using toast. It is supposed that video_ts folder are a standard folder, no matter the system you use. But toast has a different opinion. When I drag the folder in the dvd-video window, it asks to re-encode the video!!!If I try to burn this video_ts folder in windows machine using 'nero', no problem at all, straight burning! I really cannot understand why this happens.
Another problem I have is that the files I want toast to burn, usually reside to network computer. Is there any way to burn files from a network computer(win) using toast? Can toast access network or not? If not, I have to manually copy files to local disk, several minutes spent for copying gigabytes just to be able to burn them.
I just purchased Toast 10 Titanium Pro with the hopes of being able to burn blu-ray DVDs using my MBP which I purchased last December (2008) with a CD/DVD burner: MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868.
Do I need to purchase a special blu-ray drive (internal or external) to do this? I was told by my Apple rep that my dvd burner was fine and that I needed to use Final Cut Pro. I read that Toast 10 Titanium Pro was also compatible to make blu-ray DVDs.
I'm trying to burn a DVD that has both video and data. As in, when it's inserted into a regular DVD player it will play like a video DVD, but there's also data files if inserted into a computer. The video file is in a .iso format and the data files are .pdf's.
How Toast Titanium lets me put a 4.37GB DVD-R in my powerbook G4, then lets me drag like 20 AVI files into the Toast screen, then when I press record it starts encoding and takes forever to encode each one, and then when it's all finished after about 12 hours of encoding... THEN is when it chooses to tell me:
"Not enough space on the DVD-R"and aborts the whole burning process.What in the HELL. Is there any way to have Toast tell you how many AVIs you can put on one DVD-R BEFORE encoding them?
I am running Toast Titanium v. 8.1 (112). When I burn a DVD from standard files, such as an AVI, it encodes the file and then burns it to disk. The last time I was doing this, I checked the disk space on my HDD before and after burning; the difference was more than 3 GBs. Where does Toast store the files the result from the encoding? Having burned a couple dozen DVDs, I have reason to suspect that there are tens of gigabytes on my hard drive taken up by these encoded files which I will no longer use.
I just got a copy of Toast Titanium 10 and want to back up my dvds. The first one i tried said that the disc is copy protected. How can i get around this or can I? I just want to have the files so i can watch them on my computer and store them on my hard drive so i can watch them whenever wherever without the disc.
Does a new user like myself benefit from Roxio Toast? Or does the software that comes with Mac OS X capable of performing some simple CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R and DVR-RW burning fuctions. I want to organize some old digital images and want to get them off old CD's onto newer (better quality) DVD's and I may temporarily use some DVD-RW's and do my final burn on DVD's.
I need to burn a goodly number of files on OS X using a Blu-ray writer. Unfortunately when I write a large number of files with Toast Titanium the app crashes consistently. Are there really any other options for such software aside from Toast for OS X when it comes to Blu-ray?
