    Default Problems burning audio CD

    I have suddenly had problems when trying to burn audio CDs.

    I have been using OSX 10.26 and a external SCSI Yamaha drive,
    CRW-8424S-SCSI and Toast 5.2.1. Recently I have upgraded to OSX 10.2.8
    and Toast 6 but the prolbem persists.

    I normally extract the audio tracks to my HD and then burn from there.
    But now when I try to do this Toast gives me the following message:

    The drive reported an error:
    Sense key=ILLEGAL REQUEST
    Sense Code= 0x26, 0x02
    PARAMETER VALUE INVALID

    Does this mean anything to anyone?

    The only other things I have installed recently are Java 1.4.1 Update
    and the last 2 Security Updates. Toast will still burn data discs
    without a problem and 5.2.1 will burn audio discs in OS 9.2.2

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks
    Colin.

    Can you do the burn at a slower speed? Try using the slowest speed Toast
    will permit. Also, increase the cache size in Toast's preferences. Might
    not solve the problem, but you never know. Personally, I *never* burn
    audio CDs in Mac OS X because you can't take control of 100% of the CPU
    as you can in Mac OS 9; this means that other processes can interfere
    with things. m.

    I've tried both these things and it makes no difference. I have been
    burning audios CDs fine in OSX until the last week or so, and never had
    problems as long as I extract them to the HD first.

    True, but you can up the priority of your burn process (and down the
    priority of other processes if need be). The freeware Process Wizzard[*]
    provides a nice GUI for this. That should give you enough control to
    burn audio disks safely. Lately I've been finding myself making more and
    more use of this. Nice to be in control :)

    I thought that Toast could "burn in the back ground" while you did other
    things. And those other things can have some degree of control over the
    CPU.

    It can, and they do. But you pays your money and you takes your chances.

    At the very least, it's advisable to burn at a low speed when you do this. I
    generally avoid doing it whenever possible.

    Even on my PC-class machine with Nero, burning in th background while the
    computer's busy can be problematic. Anything that diverts too much time from
    the burn process can potentially ruin the CD.
