    Roxio Toast 9 and CD Spin Doctor
    I'm new to mac forum. I've recently purchased Toast 9 and the included CD Spin Doctor which allows one to record streaming audio from the Internet. I've figured out how to record streaming audio, but when I'm in Spin Doctor and I try to send my newly recorded file to Toast (using their "simple" send file to toast button), a message appears stating that this file type isn't supported by toast. Is this possible? Shouldn't these two programs be compatible with each other? In Spin Doctor, it seems to only record in AIFC mode (can I change this because maybe this is the problem, if so, how?). I was excited to get Toast because I want to be able to record streaming audio, but this is making it impossible since I don't know what to do with the AIFC file. Please help. Thanks

    Toast 9 and CD Spin Doctor Specific
    I've figured out how to record streaming audio using CD Spin Doctor (provided with my new purchase of Toast 9), but I can't figure out what to do with the file once I've recorded it. I'm not familiar with the type of file (.AIFC???). When I try to import this file into Toast, a message tells me that this file type isn't supported by Toast, which I find surprising. Also, I saved the file to my desktop, but then when I click it to play from itunes, the file doesn't play. I think Spin Doctor is automatically forcing me to record using this weird format. Any suggestions please?

    Specs:
    MacMini 4.1, OS 10.11 and 10.6; Macbook Pro 8.2, OS 10.11, MacBook 4.1, OS 10.6.8
    Not answering your question directly, but try FStream instead. You can record from it very easily. FStream 1.4.2 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker

    For audio file conversion, the best I've used is SoundConverter SoundConverter 20080802 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker

    Thanks for the info on some new programs, but since I just shelled out the buck for the new Toast 9, I'm really hoping to get that to work.

    Did you upgrade Toast to the latest version?
