Toast - Media capacity issues

Sorry for the cross post, but Im on this forum the most and i know it gets a lot more
traffic,and im at a loss on this one. We've been using Toast forever to burn our DVDs and Blurays. (We have the latest version)

We have burned several this wedding season with no problems, some .iso files upwards of 4.2gb ....we are well aware that even though DVDs have a 4.7gb capacity, it's really less than that...which is fine, and not the issue.

The issue is that suddenly out of no where, Toast is now underestimating the capacity of every type of media. It's saying available space on DVDs is only 3.14gb. It is underestimating all media types...CD, Bluray, all Dual Layers too...I can't remember the exact numbers for those, but the DVD I am certain of because that is what we were trying to burn.

Has anyone else experienced this or have a fix for it? Checked for updates and there are none, and as far as I know, we haven't done one recently. I did try deleting the preferences from our library and restarting, as that was suggested on another forum, but that didn't help. I have not tried re-installing the program yet, I guess that would be the next step but thought I would check if anyone here has experienced this.

Thanks!

It sounds almost as if there's a ghost file lurking somewhere that may have been intended for use in another project. I don't know how you'd check for that, however.

Problems like yours make me nuts. I hope you find the solution.

Don't use Toast.

Use ImgBurn ... best program EVER. And it's free.

Re: Toast - Media capacity issues

We did find the problem...kind of...after much searching through forums and suggestions, we deleted something called the "P-List" ?? hidden preferences somewhere...and that did the trick. These types of things do drive me nuts too, just out of no where...my feeling is that something from another program, encore, compressor, whatever else we use hid something in that P-List folder somehow. Not exactly sure, but deleting it did the trick.

I'll look into ImgBurn...good to know. Thanks!

I had the opposite problem the other day where Encore produced a Blu-ray disk image that was just a tad too big for a disk & Toast not unreasonably refused to burn it.
