    Is there a single efficient, fast, quality dvd burning program for mac? I am using osx 10.6.4. I can't find one, free or otherwise, that works well and takes less than an hour and a half. This includes idvd. I will never own another type of computer, and I don't miss PC, but my acer could burn a quality dvd in 45 minutes. This is making me crazy! Please help.

    I use an application called Toast. It's never failed me.

    Unfortunately, toast has failed and failed me. It also takes a long time.

    Behind you
    I use disk utility to burn my dvds? :)

    I don't see how a program could make any difference though, anyone care to enlighten me?

    I had problems with toast, it actually took a while but I guess that was due to my Blank DVD speed it said 4x but burned only at 1-2.

    Anyway have you tried a free app called BURN?

    More information

    We need more information about what you are trying to do. Because you are burning from iDVD, I suspect that you are burning a video. Because it is taking so long, I suspect it is an encoding issue. If you are encoding, then I suspect that you don't know a lot about it and that you are using a format that takes a long time to convert to the format a DVD uses.

    Telestream Episode Encoder is extremely efficient. It will also set you back $500.

    There are many other 'workflows' but we need more information.
