My husband recently purchased an external DVD burner to go with our computers (mainly his powerbook). He bought one specifically Mac compatible and he has been able to watch DVDs from the drive on his powerbook and watch AND burn from his old PC. We know the drive works, but he cannot burn from his PB. I advised him to look into Toast as from these boards, I get the general feeling it is the best software to have for DVD burning. However, I noticed on Roxio's site a program called Popcorn. Popcorn fits more into our price range and seems to do everything we want. The main reason for the DVD burner was to make backups of large files we have (his dissertation does not even fit on a CD) and maybe some DVD backup of our home movies. Will Popcorn fit for us? Thanks!
