Roxio has released an update to its disc-burning software for Mac, Toast, that now supports Blu-ray Disc creation.
Toast 8 Titanium has a range of new features, including converting files to mobile devices, as well as mixing professional audio CDs and music DVDs.
The new version also automatically catalogues discs, spans cross-platform data, and restores discs.
Photographers can now more easily create discs to share with friends using Toast Photo Disc, which makes photo discs as well as stores auto-run slideshows.
For those who like to mix their own music, Toast 8 provides audio crossfades, volume normalisation tools, sound enhancing plug-ins, and track trimming capabilities.
The Disc Recovery tools help to extract data from discs that may have been corrupted during copying or other damage, even finding saved data that Mac OS Finder can't read.
The automatic disc cataloguing feature means that you can find contents stored on discs that were created by Toast, but are no longer in the drive – it works on previously-burned and commercial discs as well.
Most helpfully for those who have many photos or audio files is Toast 8's Data Spanning, which lets you safely back up huge chunks of data. The software automatically splits files and folders across discs, making it as easy as starting the burn and then periodically replacing discs.
Toast 8 Titanium is available now for £70.
