Toast Titanium is crashing my powermac g5!
« on: September 14, 2014, 10:11:57 AM »
If you get toast freezing on you when launched..
check the CS/MS/SL setting on your cd/dvd drive in your powermac g5

i fixed this problem just now by changing my dvd's jumper frm the "cable select" setting to the "MASTER" setting..
the freeze may be caused by ATA confusion because normally an ATA IDE cable has 2 connections, 1 for master, 1 for slave (The furthest out being the master, and the closer one being the slave) the cable in the g5 has only one connection. somehow this causes a crash with toast and makes the cd/dvd drive behave strangely!

word to the wise;)
