[muglo] Re: OS 8.6, MRJ 2.2.3, QuickTime 4.1.2

Thanks for the info.  Yes, I'm using Toast 4.1.2 with a USB Card. 
The manual and all the troubleshooting guides for Toast definitely 
make it clear that it's better to use 9.x, 8.6 being the minimum. 
However, upgrading to 9.x means installing some expensive RAM, and I 
think it would be better to go the route of getting a new usb cpu, 
rather than investing in RAM on a scsi system.

I'm glad you clarified regarding a corrupt file not verifying.  I had 
been told that corrupt files do cause this.  However, I had found it 
odd that sometimes when verifying I get a verification aborted 
messages and sometimes I don't, even though I'm backing up the same 
software.  So, yes, it does look like it may be a CD burner-related 
issue.
