    Popcorn is a good program but very slow, as for the veryfying at the end you can just click on "skip" and that will save you the time of veryfying, i dont know if there is a way to turn that off in the preferences,

    You can turn it off in the dialogue box that opens just before you burn the disc. After you uncheck the box, it should stay like that so you don' have to go change it for every disc.

    Do you want the burn time only or the whole process, i.e. rip/compress/burn?
    This is different for me since I use other programs/dvd burner but the outcome is still good, rip (20-25mins) compress (30-60mins) then burn (5mins) if this helps for time sake :)

    Popcorn?!

    Why use Popcorn? Get Mac the Ripper to rip the content. If you need to remove regional coding, or any other type of coding (hint-hint), use DVD2oneX to bring down to 4.3 GB in order to fit on one single-layer blank DVD±R, THEN burn with Toast! ;)

    I use my 16x LaCie to do the heavy work (faster rip/burn times) than the iMacs but we really have about the same specs with more ram in my iMac than yours but not much.

    Straight process: MTR/DVD2oneX/Toast...where DVD2oneX inplace of popcorn but the rest is the same.
