OK.. maybe not completely. I have had a problem burning disks and the lead out taking foreeeeeeeeeever. So I did some Googling and while reviewing comments in the Roxio forums...I find out Roxio was sold to...
Toast has been passed around like a bong at Woodstock. It used to be the absolute best app to burn CDs and DVDs, but the last few years it has been buggy as all get-go.
As to your problem, I don't know what the solution is - but I will tell you that setting the SPEED of the burn to the ACTUAL speed of your SuperDrive tends to fix a lot of the problems I was having with it. By default, I believe Toast sets the speed to "best." Leaving it set to the default resulted in an unreadable disc, a failed lead-out, or a failed verification nearly 100% of the time. Changing it 8X fixed it nearly 100% of the time for me.

I saw that... my problem existed in both versions though.
I've read about that happening too at the Toast forums. I was curious about 11 and was thinking about upgrading to see what they had to offer but decided against it after reading about the problems and their inability to fix them.
Maybe with the transition to Corel there are some internal problems, but as it stands I really don't need Toast at the moment so I'll wait and see if new life is pumped into it. I used to do a lot with backing up DVDs and making custom DVDs and such, but anymore I watch stuff online and just don't have the need for it anymore. I also now have the DVR for the TV so I don't have the need to record to EyeTV and burn discs to watch on the TV.
