I don't know if this is normal, but when burning my dvd backups with Popcorn, it seems to take a dreadfully long time. Like 45minutes+ - is this normal for the iMac's DVD drive? Mac the Ripper takes quite a time to extract information also. I did notice quite long burning times with Toast images also. Is the iMac G5's drive not upto much or am I being too impatient? Probably seems longer than it really is because of my eagerness to play with my first Mac .
