Version 6.0.7

Support fixes and error corrections for:

  • 8 GB doule layer data DVDs
  • Double layer DVD music albums
  • Double layer video DVDs
  • Uncompressed Video_TS burning to double layer media
  • Uncompressed double layer copying of unencrypted DVDs

Note: Double layer burning requires capable DVD recorder and double-layer media.

Setting the layer break is performed automatically for Toast authored DVDs. Any previously authored VIDEO_TS content will be scanned for a suitable non-seamless cell boundary that results in the most equal distribution of data across layers.

The disc capacity gauge near the red Record button offers a third toggle option of DVD DL, which calibrates the gauge for the increased capacity of double-layer media.

The disc capacity gauge near the red Record button offers a third toggle option of DVD DL, which calibrates the gauge for the increased capacity of double-layer media.

Burning has been verified to work with the following DL recorder mechanisms:

  • NEC 2510A, 3100A, 3500A
  • LG GSA-4120A
  • Sony 700A
  • Teac DV-W58E
  • Logitec LDR-HA125FU2/M
  • Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-108
  • Lacie d2 series

Discs burned with the NEC 3100A, NEC 3500A, LG GSA-4210A, LDR-HA125FU2/M and Sony 700A currently only play back in PCs and set-top DVD players, but not in Macs. This is due to the fact that, at present, the Mac OS Finder does not recognize DVD+R DL as a valid disc type. The NEC2510A and TEAC drive set the disc type as DVD-ROM, which the Finder does accept. Apple is aware of this issue, and a future update to the Mac OS should recognize these discs correctly for playback.

Clarification of steps to create DVD's from preexisting Video_TS folders:

  • "DVD-Video from VIDEO_TS folder" is added to the Video tab
  • "Toast It" contextual menu supports VIDEO_TS folder. Control-click on a VIDEO_TS folder and select "Toast It" to automatically launch Toast, switch to the correct option in the Video tab, and add the folder to the window
  • Automatically creates a "New Disc" entry when a VIDEO_TS folder is added to the main content window. This "New Disc" entry is written as "NEW_DISC" for the UDF portion
  • Automatically adds an empty AUDIO_TS folder immediately prior to recording for improved compatibility during playback in set-top DVD players
  • Automatically removes Mac OS system files from within the VIDEO_TS folder (e.g., .DS_Store, etc.) for improved compatibility during playback in set-top DVD players. Only files with BUP, IFO, and VOB extensions are included in the VIDEO_TS folder

MIDI Karaoke (KAR) Support Explained:

KAR files are supported in Video CD, Super Video CD, and DVD formats (as well as DVD Music Album - requires Toast with Jam 6). MIDI Karaoke files contain synthesized instruments and synchronized text lyrics. Search the Internet for MIDI Karaoke (.kar) for more information.
