i've been having trouble for weeks now with what i thought was Lion. Apple helped me track down a file called "unar" within the Movist app. it takes over my computer and causes the spinning ball and drains the hard drive of free space. within 20 minutes i lose 90 gigs. restart gets it back. it slows the computer to a crawl. anyway, this file unar is somehow creating a folder in the invisible usr which is temporarily filling the drive with far files that have not been uncompressed and it temporarily uncompresses it. this is the strangest thing i've seen yet. Movist is definitely causing it. i force quit the running unar files that are running simultaneously in activity monitor and everything goes back to normal, but i still have to restart. i've lost time and money trying to pinpoint the cause of this problem. SHAME ON YOU developers of Movist. It's a virus disguised as a plague.

spell checker got this wrong. it should read -- temporarily filling the drive with rar files that have not been uncompressed

Why did I ever switch from Together to this crap? At least it never crashed. This is the second time I lost work. This time the program crashed after entering information for an hour. Do I charge the developer like they charge us? I think we should all start doing that. I'm on 10.7.2 on a Mac Pro.

I don't know how many people know this, but Roxio Toast 8 and 9 converts and burns these files perfectly into playable DVD's. No need for this.

This does not convert mkv files on 10.5. It says complete within seconds.

This developer is the best. He responds to questions and is open to suggestions and works tirelessly to solve problems. MyMenuDate is the best program of its kind. It uses a minimal amount of memory and is one of those little programs that should have been incorporated within the OSX system in the first place.

Great idea, but when I tried to import some text the program crashed and now will not start. The program shows up on the screen, but crashes within 2 seconds. I trashed the preferences file which did not help. I'm so glad I didn't have important information stored in this program. 10.6.3

The developers' e-mail is no longer valid. I love the idea of this program, but when I click and hold the mouse over a folder, "spaces" engages. I do see the little icon, but when I let go it runs "spaces". Also, I needed to turn off "1 finger snap" because this program locks up finder. I'm pretty sure all the settings are right.

i updated to 9.0.4 and for the first time in hundreds of burns it fails 20% of the time. what's going on? did Roxio test this upgrade?

I contacted Apple about this same problem that WINGS is experiencing. Apple said it was Ambrosia's fault and Ambrosia blamed Apple's last OS update. My hard drives are constantly cranking away and even caused a drive to fail. Apple replaced this drive, but the problem still exists. It took me quite awhile to find the culprit, which is Snapz Pro X 2.1.2. Quitting the process in Activity Monitor is the only solution aside from uninstalling Snapz Pro X 2.1.2. AMBROSIA PLEASE STOP DENYING THAT THIS PROBLEM IS YOURS. FIX IT!
