This is the log from the last backup. I canceled after 25 minutes. The previous backup logs are the same, except, like I said, some of them only got to 148 bytes. Never been this slow.

Thanks, everyone. Don't know why they don't just spell out what that means.

That tipped me off. I still had Toast set on "DVD Video from VIDEO_TS," as I thought I was still dealing with that format.

Switched it to "DVD-Video" and it worked fine.

Thanks so much....

Did that search. Nothing doing... so I think you may be correct.
