Question: What does "Toast It" mean?

When I right-click on a CD on the Desktop, one of the options i "Toast It." I am trying without success to duplicate a CD and I am finding that the ways to do that in earlier OSs are gone or hidden. What does "Toast IT" mean? Is that a reference to the great, long-lamented app "Toast"? How can I duplicate a CD in the current Mac OS?


Thanks...

iMac, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

For $100 when I dupe a CD once a year, Toast has become bloatware and is, effectively, gone. Still, what does "Toast IT" mean in the Mac OS? And how do we now get whatever app (Disk Utility, iTunes, Finder, ...) to copy an audio CD using my single Superdrive, so it will autoplay in a CD player like in my car?


Thanks again..

Actually "Toast It" means nothing as far as macOS goes. I suspect you had Toast installed at some point and didn't completely remove it. I have to guess because I never used or installed Toast.


I haven't burned a CD in close to ten years and I've never tried to copy a commercial CD. Someone else will have to answer that.

This machine has never had Toast on it. The last Time I used Toast was on a Mac II with OS 9-something on it.

Well, that's a tough upgrade path for it to survive all this time.

I'm surprised that it still works with it being written for an entirely different CPU. You should contact someone at Roxio as that is quite an amazing conundrum. However, I don't think Roxio had anything to do with the version written for OS 9.

I found this…

The article was published when Sierra was out. It may still work with High Sierra.


I did go rummage through the basement to find a CD to try. Unfortunately I have no CD-Rs lol


I did make a disk image using Disk Utility. At least that's something. 😎
