Hi Mike,

I have never been able to copy an audio CD direct using Toast. I always
extract it onto the hard disk (over night so I don't have to sit around and
wait for it) and then burn the new disc, laborious but much much safer.

I even tried the process at 2x and 1x instead of 4x, but no different. I
guess Toast is extracting the audio and then re-encoding it to audio CD
standard, and that makes it slow.



BTW: note that I have changed email and www addresses to
