10.3: Disk Utility will read and convert .toast files Apps
In Panther, the new Disk Utility can mount .toast files, which can then be converted to .dmg and burned to disk -- helpful if you have .toast files but not Toast, for example.

Just for reference, this was available since at least 10.2.

Yes, isn't .toast the same as a DVD/CD master? And I'm positive I've mounted toast images with OS9's Disk Copy before.

You guys are all missin it

The new thing about this is that we're talking about Disk Utility, not Disk Copy. Disk Copy is no longer in Panther and its functionality has been put into Disk Utility. Thus, this is a new hint and not a repeat of a previous feature.
I've noticed that Disk Utility won't recognize .toast files directly, the way Disk Copy did. I'd rather convert the image without mounting it, personally...

10.3: Disk Utility will convert .toast if you change it to .iso
Authored by: Lectrick on Oct 25, '03 02:03:48PM

Update: I noticed that if I changed the .toast extension to .iso, Disk Utility will allow me to convert it without mounting it first, which is the preferred way to go about that.

Disk Utility & AppleScript
Authored by: ReznorB5 on Oct 26, '03 08:00:32AM

What happens in 10.3 to AppleScripts that send events (when made in 10.2) to Disk Copy? Are they forwarded on to Disk Utility? Of course, one could just rewrite the script to do the work using the command line (do shell) utilities (disktool, hdiutil, diskutil), but there might still be a need for interfacing with the GUI utility I suppose.

10.3: Disk Utility will read and convert .toast files
Authored by: imageworx on Oct 27, '03 10:39:34AM

Has anyone used the older Disc Copy from say, 10.2.x in panther? I miss it as a stand alone and found it rather awkward just to make some img for server deployment (Using Disc Utility, then makinga new image, giving it a size, ...)
Before it was just drag and img.

I use Disk Copy from 10.2.8 for drag and drop operations in panther and it does its job very well.

10.3: Disk Utility will read and convert .toast files
Authored by: dantheripper on Mar 01, '09 05:08:58PM

This works for 10.5.6 Mac. Get your toast file, and open it with disk utility. Select the toast file at the left, and then click convert at the top, and have it end with .dmg. It works like a charm, but it may take awhile if it is a large file. It took my 5 gig .toast file about 4-5 minutes to convert it...

10.3: Disk Utility will read and convert .toast files
Authored by: Vincent2128 on Jul 29, '10 07:00:32AM

Anybody still out there? I'm having a problem with a .toast file-i've tried changing the extension, then converting it in Disk Utility. Every time I try, however, it says "Unable to create '_____.dmg' (not recognized)".
Anybody got advice?
System: Mac OSX 10.5.8
