i've upgraded my machine to Mac Os 9.2.1, and since i 've done so, Toast (v 5.0.1) reports that no recorder can be found.

[i am using a Que Fire 12x Burner on an AGP G4 450mHz Tower].

i've updated toast to 5.0.2, and still no recorder was found. the system profiler has it listed as a firewire device, but toast running under 9.2.1 would not recognize it. i've tried booting to Os 10.1, and using toast 5 preview-- that version of toast did find the device, but would not light the record button, so i was still unable to burn. anyone else with this trouble?

(i'm all up to date on firmware and and system software updates)

any help would be greatly appreciated...

Do you have, by upgrading to 9.2.1, installed DiskBurner? It's known to be not compatible with Toast.

yes i did have disc burner installed, but i had it previously installed without any conflict. burning only became a problem with the Os 9.2.1 upgrade. i tried disabling the discburner extension, and it did not make a difference. still unable to burn.

thanks for the response-

Make sure the Apple FireWire Authoring support and USB Authoring support extensions are turned off.

that did the trick- thank you VERY much!!!!!


i guess 9.2.1 set some things in motion i either didn't have turned on, or installed newer versions which caused the incompatibility.

(-now for Os X)

I also upgraded to 9.2.1 and lost my cd burner (USB iomega). Turning off USB and Firewire authoring extensions worked for me as well. I went ahead and turned off the Disc Burner Extension as well.
