I've been using a disk naming convention for a few years now where the disk titles are number sequences of [YEAR].[MONTH].[DISK NUMBER]. So the resulting disk might be named somthing like "2006.06.05".

That's worked great with Toast. Now I'm attempting to use Apple's disk burning in Tiger. It appears that Finder cuts off the last digit when you go to burn the disk. I've named the burn folder "2006.06.05.fpbf" and Finder says that it will burn a disk named "2006.06.05" but when the actual burn is started, it's only "2006.06".

Is it back to Toast, or is there a way around this?

Thank you for any help.

This is one of the most unique reasons I've seen for needing Toast, but yes, I think you need to use Toast.

There's quite a few disc burning applications out there and they ALL manage to stay in business even though Windows and OS X both have disc burning capabilities built right in.

Can you think of many other features built into both OSes that STILL manage to support an industry of other apps? It's because the OSes are pretty limited, you've just found one more reason I wasn't even aware of.

Thanks for the note. It's what I was afraid of. :)

Try using a "_" or a "-" instead of a "." between the numbers.

Tony!

Thanks for the note Tony! I've considered that as a solution, but I already have several years of previous backups and a few from this year. Perhaps when the next year rolls around, I'll make the change. Or perhaps I'll just upgrade Toast. Thanks again.
