Hi All,

I recently won a bid on the original Video Toaster 4000 software and documentation. I have not received it yet but There is 45 disks in all. Does any one know if that includes the 3.1 update or not? Also I have a 4.1 cd that came with the Toaster wich I haven't installed, I'm waiting on a adapter for my multisync monitor. My question is, do yo need to upgrade in sequence, 3.1, 4.0, 4.1 etc.. Or can you jump say from 3.0 to 4.2? By the way is 4.2 the last AmigaToaster revision? or is there a 4.3?Thanks

I have 53 disks
disk 13 locks up sometimes :D But there is relief posted.
Also disk 42 sometrimes does too for some reason, But going straight from CD os better.

4.3 was the last upgrade. Ya don't need to do the floppies if you have the CD. But you do need the floppy install disk to get the cd installation running.

There is a 4.3 but this is just the 3.5 software bundled with 4.2 and some added freebee programs. 3.1 will normally not run if you have the Toaster 4.X installed but this patch fixed that issue.

Thank you for the info, Where can you get the patch? Also do the 45 disks include 3.1 or do I need to get the additional floppies?:vticon: :)

Sometimes you can find them on eBay but your best bet is to get it from Newtek directly this way you know your getting the install disc as well.
Contact them through the costomer care link at the top of this page.

The original 41 disks have all you need but your better off waiting until you have the 4.3 Cd before installing as you will need to do a fresh install anyhow as it is not an upgrade per say.
