Just wanted to point out to everyone that for any music you choose to record to the HDD, you don't actually need Gracenote. Just rip your CD to your PC in Windows Media Player (make sure you've adjusted your rip settings to record in MP3 format). Then copy the files you want to record to your HDD from your PC to a thumb drive.......the audio system will pick up the album, song title, artist and genre from the MP3 file without even looking for Gracenote info. (As an added plus, if you record to the HDD from a thumbdrive, the recording speed is about 4-5x faster than recording from a CD.) If you're computer-literate, you can even go directly to your individual MP3 files, right click, select "Properties" and by navigating to the "Details" tab you will be able to edit all of the associated information that you want to appear during playback!

You do not need Toast.
Double-click the "2011 Gracenote Media Database Update DVD.zip" file you downloaded.
This will unarchive to the folder "2011 Gracenote Media Database Update DVD".
Inside this folder is the file "2011 Gracenote Update rev 2548.iso". Place the pointer on this file, right-click and select "Burn 2011 Gracenote Update rev 2548.iso" to disc... (You can also select this command from the File menu.)
