Toast 8 Titanium

Toast's DVD-burning options aren't nearly as comprehensive as iDVD's, but they're great for quick burns. Toast 8 Titanium nails all of our disc-burning needs with support for nearly every format and situation we can imagine, but it almost loses focus, including several utilities and features that you may not need. As multitalented as Toast is, we wish we could buy it with just its robust burning options.
