This is a strange one. I can't get it to launch at all; it immediately quits "unexpectedly" each time.

One of the worst Mac developers I've ever encountered, prone to over-promising and under-delivering.
The software is merely OK, but there are better alternatives, including free ones.
I have a license but have not used it in years and don't intend to download this update.

Read the reviews before coughing up your money. Also I noticed that the dev rated his/her app 5 stars on the Crap Store. Tried to report it, got an error message. Big surprise.

This is why I prefer MacUpdate to the Crap Store. Thanks to everyone at MacUpdate for making it such a great resource!

Where is the fix at for the iso issue. Why do you have no support for this app? Mac App Store is where you have supplied a link for support. That link just takes users & or buyers to the main RadBreez page. It must be true what others are saying about you!!

BUYER BEWARE!
This is probably the worst developer I've ever encountered. I purchased licenses for 10 of their applications (DiscBlaze, Footlights, Illumination, DeskDoodle, DoThisNow, RadicalPhoto, Macabinet, RadicalSqueeze, RadicalSafe and Zephyr).
As can be seen on their Web site, they now only have 2 applications. There were many promises regarding updates but those promises were never fulfilled.
Their forum was filled with user complaints, and instead of addressing the valid criticisms they removed the forum.
I'm surprised to see an update to DiscBlaze, since 6.1.6 is from 2006 and Bryan Lund supposedly abandoned the Mac platform.

For those recent switchers and people unfamiliar with Radical Breeze, AVOID THEM. At the very least, read the comments about Radical Breeze and Bryan Lund at various Mac-related sites (e.g., VersionTracker)

Probably their best application was Formation. It was not developed by Radical Breeze. They acquired it and announced that they would add many enhancements and promised a free upgrade to version 2. This was over 3 years ago.

They took people's money and did not deliver on their promises. The software itself is nothing special by today's standards. The free Burn may be a better option.

well, don't bother buying this software. or any other radical breeze software. the author has decided to abandon the mac platform and switch to linux.
unfortunate, as they made decent software. but don't waste your money, since they probably won't update anymore.

I have had this app since 2003 and have been asked for upgrade fees twice. The first time the upgrade was bug fixes with only minor added features.
The last time, it was an improved look, but not much else.

IMHO it is not good to keep charging upgrade fees on shareware, especially if it is not insanely great. I don't like Roxio, but might as well instead pay them for a lot more features and the same modus operandi.

"The application DiscBlaze has unexpectedly quit" Mac OS X and other applications are ot affected. etc, etc.

I tried 4 times to open this app. I don't think it's anything to do with my system 'cause BurnX Free and SimplyBurnz all work fine. Which is strange considering DiscBlaze is shareware and the others are free.

Glad I did'nt spend money on this pile of rubbish otherwise I'd be pretty upset by now.

Deleted it from my system.

Obviously DiscBlaze works quite well for most people, so I would be curious as to why it doesn't for you.

What OS version are you running? (DiscBlaze 6 and newer require OS 10.4.)

Do you have a supported CD/DVD burner attached and, if necessary, turned on?

Decent... but nothing revolutionary... basically a cosmetic overhaul from version 5, with no new features.

I'd still say spend the extra $30 and get Toast 7, which is $59 after rebate at Buy.com... anybody who owns Tiger or iLife qualifies for the rebate.

Toast does...

1) data spanning... crucial for any serious burning software
2) one-button copy of CD and DVD, plus DVD compression
3) VCD and SVCD craetion
4) DVD 9:5 compression like Popcorn and DVD2One
5) audio DVDs

and alot more

Not really a cosmetic overhaul, it was coded from scratch at 6!

The new user interface looks good, but there is no support for contextual menus and I can't delete stuff by using the "del" key. This shouldn't be the case in modern Mac OS X applications in my humble opinion.
