hey guys, i got my macbook pro about 2 weeks ago, loving OS x over vista...

only thing is, as an experianced Windows user, i only know windows software...

Basically i need a few decent ideas for software for burning my downloaded movies onto DVD, anyone know any good ones??

I tried with iDVD but didnt get much joy out of it.

Input much appreciated,

Ben

I use Roxio's Toast, but you may want to give Burn a try too.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Just widening this thread slightly, does anyone ever use and recommend OS X's own burn capability. ie. The R-click 'Toast It' from the desktop, or New Burn Folder?
