Is anyone using this? I've used version 5.2 — my use was to occasionally copy a music CD — but I think it's time to update. I read some reviews at Amazon about Toast 10 and some of them are a bit scary.

"Roxio Toast 10 Titanium This is one frustrating program. Crashes repeatedly. Certain apps (such as Auto Music Capture in the bundled CD Spin Doctor) simply don't work, and there's no tech support to be found. Some of the more basic functions work OK, but not without bugs and frequent crashes. A lot of cash for a lot of grief. In fact, as I've retried a few functions to be sure this review is accurate, the *@#%* program has now wiped out all audio on my Mac."
I'm using version 8, and it's working just fine. I see no reason to 'upgrade' to version 9 (or 10).
Roxio must not be selling much. Got an email this week knocking off another $10 on the price.
It's their own fault it's not selling. They really haven't put anything new in since v.7 that would be compelling for the masses. They added Blu-ray support at some point, but the BR discs are so expensive, and the masses have not really embraced Blu-ray either yet due to cost so no need to upgrade to a Blu-ray burning version for most people.
That and they never make one version work right, and I don't mean just things like minor GUI problems. I mean we all know that's the nature of many apps, small things never get fixed, but with Toast it's been more than just small things.
Also CD Spin Doctor has had major problems since v.10 of Toast, and 4 months and 2 updates later they still have not fixed everything.
I'm with you reboot ...I have v7 (which I got heavily discounted on Amazon). It was worth the price to me for several years use, but they are seriously delusional with their upgrade pricing. People who have already got a license should be able to upgrade for $10-$20 at the MOST. I just went to their site to see what it would take for me to upgrade from v7 ...yeah, there isn't a discount at all. Upgrading from v9 is a whopping $60!! Kiss my ass Roxio. And the fact that they just introduced a "Pro" version that's even MORE expensive just shows where they are headed.
They used to have a light version that was free. They need to go back and make a lite version for ~$20 that leaves all the extra crap off. That's the only thing I would ever buy from them again. Once my v7 stops working I'll probably just go back to the Finder or disk utility for my burning needs.
