is a CD and DVD authoring
and media conversion software application
for Mac OS X
. Its name is a play on the word 'burn', a term used for the writing of information onto a disc through the use of a laser.
Discs can be burned directly through Mac OS X, but Toast provides added control over the process as well as extra features such as file recovery for damaged discs and cataloging and tracking of burned disc contents.
Toast 9 is a Universal Binary application and requires a PowerPC G4, PowerPC G5, Intel Core-based or newer Macintosh running Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
Toast was originally developed by Dr. Markus Fest and his company Miles Software GmbH
and distributed by Astarte
. In 1997 the product was purchased by Adaptec
, and later transferred to Roxio
(then a division of Adaptec).
