Added features usually... but the interface has been the same since Version 6 and if you just wanna burn Data/Audio/DVDs - then you can use 6, 7, or 8. They do the same thing.

Not quite accurate Fyrefly, Toast 8 Titanium has a slicker interface and animated windows version 7 did not. Toast 8 also includes Deja Vu backup software, CD Spin Doctor, Disc Cover, and Motion Pictures HD. Toast 8 is also univesal binary so if you you are running a MacIntel system you get a definite performance boost over version 7 or 6.

I do agree with what you say though that If basic burning is all you're after then any of these versions will suit, but having used all three I can say that I find the interface of ver. 8 to be more pleasant and that it definitely performs better than version 7 on MacIntels.

so if what I am looking for is really a way to back up my dvd collection, then 6 will do, right? I am by no means a computer "guru" so would I really notice a difference?

Another product that Roxio makes is Popcorn.

Quote:
Popcorn lets you easily make high quality copies of your DVDs and movies. Take television and other video from your Mac to a broad range of consumer ...
Roxio Popcorn® 3 - DVD Copy - Overview
In v.8 the abilities of Popcorn are included in with Titanium 8.

-The program Popcorn is available as a stand alone for those users with v.6 and v.7.

- I am not a fan of the animation effects in v.8 as I feel they take away for the CPU especially on my PPC.

so Popcorn basically does most of the same things that Toast does. I don't need both...is that what I am reading? I'm a little confused by your post, "in v.8 the abilities of popcorn are included with Titanium 8" does this mean that in v.8 of toast, basically its the same as popcorn?

There used to be two programs, Toast and Popcorn.

With v.8 Popcorn is now part of Toast's functionality.

I think you would only need popcorn if you want to backup your movies onto your harddrive. But if you want to make backup discs, then you would need toast as well.

Now you have to keep in mind that if you want to back up DVD of hollywood movies, they mostly have encryption that prevents programs like Popcorn from ripping. Popcorn is designed for ripping your own home movie collections that doesn't have encryption.

So you'll need other software to rip, then maybe use Popcorn and/or Toast to put it into a format you want.

Yes MactheRipper and Toast work very well together for that purpose. Use MTR to extract the movie then Toast to compress and remove unwanted features etc.
