Which Product to Purchase



I own an iMac G5 running the Leopard software. I occasionally burn some DVD's and find the iDVD very cumbersome & confusing. My main purpose would be to:


1) Back up my jpeg images and documents (data) for which up to now I have been using CD, allowing me multisession copying

2) Occasionally making a back up copy of my Movies to be run on my DVD player.

3) making a DVD (which can be run on my DVD player) from files with extension such as .avi, .wmv, &VIDEO-TS


What should I purchase Toast 8 or Popcorn 3. What is the difference apart from the price?


Thanks in advance for your help.

Backing up data files such as jpgs requires Toast 8. Popcorn only does video. Your video items can be done by either app. Naturally neither can copy encrypted DVDs so those would need to be ripped by something else before duplicating with Toast or Popcorn. I'm not sure about .wmv. You'll need Flip4Mac for playing those but I've never used one in Toast.
