OS X :: Roxio Toast 10 Titanium - Copy Protected Disc?
Feb 2, 2010
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.
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 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.
I create my own music and sometimes people ask if they can have it on a CD. Since I really do not want people to be able to rip it to their computer's I have denied these requests. However as the demand apparently grows and more people start asking I feel that I would really want to be able to share my music with them, securely. What I would like to do is burn a cd containing my music that people cant rip. I know there will always be some way of doing it, but fore the average computer user preventing mediaplayer/itunes from being able to rip the music will be enough to keep them from doing it.
I recently downloaded some tv shows from the internet. I converted one show (21 minutes) to watch later on my iphone. I first used the convert option on roxio toast and this procedure took almost 2 hours. Then out of curiosity i did the same thing on handbrake. Handbrake only took 15 minutes. Also the quality from the handbrake app looks a whole lot better. So i guess my question is why is handbrake so much better with a free app?
I've been using various versions of Roxio Toast for a while now. I've recently purchased version 9 but I've had the same issue with previous versions of Toast as I have with version 9...it's only through total frustration though that I've created this topic!
Whenever I want to create a DVD from, say an AVI file, to watch on a conventional DVD player, Toast seems to take forever; for example, when I use Nero (even through Windows XP via VMWare Fusion, not to mention via Boot Camp), Toast takes, on average, about fours times as long as Nero does - and that's being generous! I realise that I'm only encoding through Nero doing a single pass encoding process (through choice) but surely, Roxio Toast 9 shouldn't really be this slow?
I'd be interested to know if this is the same for all Toast 9 users or is it just me? Is this a problem with my Mac (or installation Mac OS X) itself?
Set of a video burning with roxio toast 10, its been going 3hours and at 54%.is this right and does anyone know of a good dvd video burning software, with menus, apparently idvd is called at 60min with video
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).
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.
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 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.
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 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 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'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 2 films which are each their own video TS file. When using toast to burn a dvd, I can only drag one of the video TS files. Each video TS file is a full length movie, but what I want from each movie is one short film which is part of the extras. So I want 2 short films on one DVD. How can I put these 2 short films on to one disc?
