I'm using a Mac mini w/OS 10.5.5. I have Toast 7 for use with an external Sony firewire dvd burner. Toast only sees the mac's internal cd drive, not the firewire drive. The mac sees the external drive, but it cannot be accessed via software. Any suggestions?

When you look at the main window for Toast, down in the lower right corner, can you click on the little star looking kinda thingy and see if the recorder is showing up there?

Yes, I see it when I click the star thingy. Thanks.
LOL star thingy. We are so technical here at JA!

Anyway, you should be able to choose your burner from that menu or from the Recorder menu.

I also wanted to make sure you were using the latest version of Toast 7, 7.1.3.
It fixes some burning issues with leopard.

If you have it, you should be good to go, but maybe consider upgrading soon to Toast 8 to be more compatible with Leopard.
