    I remember reading that the iMac DVD drives are set not to exceed a certain speed so that they remain quiet, but I would rather the occasional disc burns take less time than be silent and keep me waiting. Is there any way to speed this up?

    I'm using toast titanium 10 and the speed never goes past 5x for dvds.

    it's seldom used, and works just fine. I've never had a coaster. I just want the thing to work as fast as it was designed to.

    The SuperDrive are crap, total crap. What discs are you using? 5x doesn't sound too bad

    If you burn a lot DVDs, get an external DVD drive
