  1. With services like YouTube and streaming media and huge hard drives, how is burning DVDs still a thing? I have removed my optical drive in my MacBook Pro to put in a Solid State Drive and the new laptops don’t even have an optical drive. Why would anyone want to buy a $100 program to burn discs?

    1. As a photographer and videographer, I still burn dozens of DVDs each week. My most recent burn was for over 60 copies of a grade school graduation ceremony.

      1. I guess that you haven’t heard of the internet and streaming or the cloud. Ever try that thing that Google purchased called YouTube? If you are not located in the Ozark Mountains, your customers might have access to that new fangled high speed internet thingy.

        1. Don’t be so hard on the Beaver, Ward! He is obviously selling a service and handing over a finished “product” probably adds some perceived value to the customer. Of course it could be online.

          I don’t disagree about how useless CD’s and DVD’s can be but they do have a place for some.

          The only reason I use mine nowadays is to rip with iTunes or HandBrake.

        2. He has heard of this, and there’s no reason to act like a snarky douchebag, because this guy, as a PHOTOGRAPHER, caters to his customers, who ask and want something physical to remember an important event.

          I bet he even sells photo prints as well. Are you going to chastise him for that as well?

  2. Now that burning disc media is no longer “in demand,” Toast sounds like it wants to be the “does everything” software package. Unfortunately, lack of focus is not good for marketing and telling me why I need Toast.

  3. I’ve used the DVD just a few times since I got my Mac in Dec 2012, however recently I needed to send a large amount of data to two co workers and I included a few humorous videos in the extra space on the DVDs. Do this was not difficult but in was more trouble than I thought. A product like Toast might help some. However, I have a policy of putting NOTHING on my Mac unless it comes from the Apple Mac App store. 🙂

    1. I purchased a stack of 50 burnable DVDs back when I had a new Powerbook Wall Street and burned 6 discs as a back up. That was the last time burned a disc. I don’t even play discs in anything anymore.

        1. You should inform Apple and other tech companies who are dropping optical drives from their laptops. They are not nearly as clued in as you are about those ‘millions of other consumers’ as you are. While you are at it, let them know how much you miss the floppy drive too.

          1. Wow, you really are terribly clueless, aren’t you?

            Plenty of comments in this thread of people, and different business’ that still use or rely on optical media.

            Yes, you’re right, optical drives are gone from laptops (and newer iMacs as well) – yet, here’s Roxio making a product for products which (according to you) no longer exist anywhere on the entire planet.

            Weird, huh?

            Like I said, you’re pretty clueless. My guess is you’re probably some 14 year old kid, who think only what he thinks matters in the whole world. Your entire diatribe seems consistent with that.

  4. As I posted over at MacUpdate:

    Roxio pulled a Microsoft? No version 13? Meanwhile, scrutinizing the new features, I’m shaking my head as to what exactly I’m paying for.

    – Audio recorder? – – Get excellent Audio Hijack instead for cheaper than the upgrade.
    – Better DVD authoring? – – Previous versions are entirely adequate. Paying more of meagre new features does not entice me.
    – Format conversion? – – Go get HandBrake and donate to the project for cheaper.

    If Toast 12 wasn’t compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan, maybe I’d be interested. But so far there is no indication of a problem.

    ∑ = A high upgrade cost for not much in return.

  5. My last Toast purchase was 11 Titanium, and it was with a MacUpdate bundle. I am kind of hoping it will show up in another bundle. Funny there was a long time between 11 and 12, and now they are up to 14…

  6. You know who still burns discs regularly and frequently? The entire legal/judicial system. As a lawyer, we make and exchange and provide CDs all the time to courts, lawyers and other parties as part of the standard litigation/filing process. So it might be 2015 in the rest of America but with lawyers, it might as well still be 1995.
