Toast 8 Highlights:

See It
* TV & Toast: Mac users can now enjoy their favorite TV shows on disc and on-the-go with Toast’s exclusive support for digital video recorders, including TiVo and EyeTV. This support allows users to watch recorded shows on their Mac, burn them to DVD or DivX discs, or convert them for enjoyment on a portable player such as an iPod or PSP.
* Photo Discs: Toast 8 now makes it easy to share favorite photos with friends and family with the new Toast Photo Disc feature. Toast Photo Discs store thousands of full-resolution pictures as well as an auto-run slideshow. Discs can be played on a Windows PC or a Mac, or used in photo-finishing kiosks.
* Personalized Labels and Covers: Toast provides new ways to personalize your discs with labels, cover art, and inserts. Featuring full drawing and text editing tools, as well as over 600 clip art images and Google image search. Toast also supports LightScribe drives and media to allow users to burn artwork and labels directly on discs.

Hear It

* Superior Sounding Discs: For the best listening and playback experience, Toast 8 provides DJ-style crossfades, volume normalization tools, sound enhancing plug-ins, track trimming capabilities, and other features previously found in Roxio’s Jam™ software. In addition to great sounding audio CDs, users can create 50-hour music DVDs complete with on-screen menus, shuffle play, and Dolby Digital sound.
* Music Rediscovery: Toast 8 lets consumers rediscover their analog music collections with the new CD Spin Doctor Assistant. This assistant guides users every step of the way, from setting up the equipment all the way through burning a disc or converting tracks for enjoyment on portable devices.

Copy It

* Disc Recovery: Consumers can recover data from scratched or damaged discs that may be unreadable in the Mac OS Finder. Now with Toast 8’s Disc Recovery tools, users can gracefully recover from read errors encountered during disc copying and recover some files from damaged discs to create new clean copies of the previously unreadable disc.
* Back-up and Convert DVDs: Users can backup an entire 9 GB DVD to a standard 4.7 GB DVD disc. Fit-to-DVD™ compression uses all available disc space to maximize video quality. Toast also features Director’s Cut custom compilations, so users can select the specific video, audio, and languages they wish to record or convert individual video files for use on a portable video player.

Toast It

* Blu-ray Disc Recording: Only Toast brings Blu-ray Disc burning to the Mac platform, enabling users to store as many as 12,500 music tracks, 50,000 photos, or up to four hours of high-definition video on a single 50 GB Blu-ray Disc. Toast’s Dynamic Writing feature allows consumers to use a Blu-ray Disc recorder like a giant hard drive by dragging and dropping content directly onto the disc icon on the desktop to add or remove files.
* Disc Cataloging and Instant Search: Users can automatically catalog the contents of their discs so they can track the contents even when the disc is no longer in the drive. This works automatically with discs created in Toast, as well as with previously burned and commercial discs, such as audio CDs.
* Data Spanning: Breaking through the size limitations of other burning software, the Toast 8 data-spanning feature lets users safely back-up data of any size, such as entire music or photo libraries, iMovie projects, and DV files. The feature automatically splits files and folders across multiple discs, and maintains the exact folder and file structure for easy retrieval on any Mac OS X, Windows XP, or Windows Vista system. Data spanning is an ideal way for Mac users in homes, schools, or businesses to share large files with Mac and PC users in other locations.

Toast 6 Titanium v6.0.7

Support fixes and error corrections for:

Double-Layer (DL) support for data, audio, video and copy formats.

* Data - Create 8 GB data DVDs
* Audio - Create DVD Music Albums with over 72 hours of music (requires Toast with Jam 6)
* Video - Create DVDs with over 3 hours of video (4 hours when using Dolby Digital sound - requires Toast with Jam 6). Create DVDs from pre-existing VIDEO_TS folders without re-compressing to fit on single layer DVD.
* Copy - Copy unencrypted DVDs and disc images without re-compressing to fit on single layer DVD.

Requires a double-layer 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.

Simplified creation of DVDs from pre-existing 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

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.

Video Encoding

* Improved pass-through (do not re-encode) for pre-existing compliant video content.
* Improved status messages during video processing. Pre-existing compliant video content that is passed-through say "multiplexing" versus "encoding".

General Improvements

* Automatically creates additional slideshow buttons to the main disc menu when adding more than 99 images to a Video CD, Super Video CD or DVD slideshow.
* Automatically creates additional playlist buttons to the main disc menu when adding more than 99 tracks to a DVD Music Album playlist (requires Toast with Jam 6).
