Default DVD+R DL slow to "catch" ?

I tried my first DVD+R DL burn. Used Verbatim 8x dics. Once it started to play it looked great. Only thing seemed strange was it seemed like the DVD player took about 2 minutes to get to the "DVD Video" on screen prompt. I could hear it churning trying to load the disc. Is this common with DL?

I have Phillips dvp 5990. Just seems like it takes forever to load.

It's common with the Philips, I have one, it's a DVP 3962. I also have an RCA, which loads like lightning. My research on these players has come up with Pioneer being, la creme de la creme.

Thanks for the info Soup. Now I feel a bit better about buying a spindle of 'em.

Which Pioneer are you using? And if it's like $350 is there a good one for less? esp good if it does .divx

I have to try a couple more burns but so far my rig doesn't inspire confidence. Got the first one to load after about 2.5 minutes as I mentioned, the 2nd burn just hung forever. Even if they all worked, waiting 2 minutes to load is way too much stress. It's a shame because these 5990s are cheap and seem to do everything else well.

I bought an RCA before I found out about the Pioneer, so I don't have a Pioneer. From what I read, you should check out the Pioneer DV Series, DV400, DV410, DV420.

you are not going to spend $350 on a DVD player or are you?

i'd rather opt for a blu-ray player in this price range and for example the latest models from Samsung (1600, 3600, 4600) have a much shorter loading time than most other bd player.

Hmmm, my 5990s are pretty new, so unless I miraculously find some media that loads smoothly looks like I'll continue using DVD-RB and AutoGK to burn DVD5. It would be nice now and then to do a DVD9 but experimentation is kind of expensive. Until you know what media will work best(if any) you have to buy those way over priced 5 packs.

Edit: I got lucky. The burner on my dual core sees the write strategy up to 8x and did a burn at full speed. The player only hemmed and hawed for about 20 or 30 seconds before coming up with the DVD Video notice. Seems to play ok.
