    Hi guys , I have a brand new MacBook pro i7 and want to use it for my business . I need to know if there is a quicker way of burning onto disc ? I want to put about 20 secs of high speed film (filmed at 300 frames per second) onto disc but can't get it below 6-7 minutes Actual burning time via the iMovie then iDVD route ....,, any idea on how or if it is possible to speed this time up to maybe 1-2 minutes ?

    An external DVD burner might speed it up as the one inside is 8x while desktop ones are 22x I think. You could of course use lower quality in order to squeeze the film so that it's smaller thus faster to burn

    Mmmm ....it has to be in high speed unfortunately .So if I bought an iMac instead of the MacBook that would speed up the burning time considerably then ?

    Repeat burns can be made by making an iso-image and burning that.

    No, you would need a Mac Pro but even a 50$ ext DVD burner should speed it up. For example this would theoretically triple the write speed for R disks and double it for RW disks
