File Information

  • Early versions of Toast software would save a disc image with no extension, as was common for Macintosh systems, but would add "•image" to the end.
  • Starting In Toast 5.1 (2002), the extension ".toast" was added, probably to be compatible with Mac OS X.
  • In Mac OS X, it seems .toast files can be renamed to .iso with full compatibility.[3]
  • When saving an Audio CD to a disk image, Toast saves image to the Sound Designer II .sd2f format.

File Identification

  • Early •image & .toast files begin with the hex values "45 52 02 00". Later versions don't seem to have this header.
  • Most disc images and also the project files have the text string "TOAST ISO 9660 BUILDER COPYRIGHT (C) 1997 ADAPTEC, INC. - HAVE A NICE DAY" with the difference of date and ownership, ROXIO, SONIC is later versions.
