    Default DL burning problems - Please HELP!

    Hello, I am having trouble burning to DL DVD-R disks. I've never had problems with single layer disks. I'm trying to compile and backup various scenes to one DL DVD-R. It makes it to the burn phase and then fails. I even followed your advice and updated my firmware. Any help would be appreciated. I have a NEC ND-3540A. Attached is the error log.

    I would Nero to your hard drive, shrink by Iso image file and burn with dvdd or imgburn, so I dont have to worry about + or -

    I would burn to a folder using Shrink (set to no compression). Then download the program Pgcedit. Load the DVD files into Pgcedit. This program will then allow you to set a layer break and create a ISO which, can then be burned with Imgburn.

    Pgcedit software.

    Blutach's DL burning guide with Pgcedit.

    I would also use DL+R instead of DL-R as the DVD player compatibility is a lot higher.

    Thanks guys. I'll have to try to give those other methods a try. I never had problems with standard DVD-Rs. This is new with DL burning.

    I would use DVD+Rs but my two dvd players don't support it. I guess it is DVD-R for now.

    Anyone else out there with any suggestions? From past experience the more suggestions the better. Thanks!

    A DVD+R with the bitset is the closest equivalent of a regular DVD Video which ALL DVD players can, of course, play.

    DL DVD-Rs are much more problematic.

    Regards

    Are you talking about DL +R and DL -R?

    DL+R is a lot more compatible and hardly any DL-R works with DVD players. Most DL+R is automatically burned as DVD ROM with most DL burners which increases the cmpatibility.

    I have a Toshiba RD-SX32. It only lists -R disks as being compatible. I tried a +R once and it didn't work. Guess I need to stick with -R for the time being. Can anyone else help with how to get nero to burn DL DVD-R disks? As I said before regular -R disks burn fine. Only the DL are problems. Otherwise I'll have to try the other methods of burning listed above. Thanks.

    But is that relating to single sided DVD-R's. DL-R is still new and the specs for it was only finalised this year. DL-R and DVD-R are different. As stated, DL-R is a lot less compatible. A player can play DVD-R and not DL-R.

    I didn't know that??? I figured the -R was the same DL or not. Maybe I should ask someone at Toshiba and see if it will play DL DVD+Rs then? It is worth a shot. Thanks for the help. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Is this your player?

    It doesn't mention DL media but I had a quick look on the net and it does look like lot of Toshiba players do work with DL+R.

    Yea, that is the player/recorder. I called their tech support and they said it didn't play any DL disks. They might not know what they are talking about though. I'll have to borrow a DL +R that my friend burned and see if it plays. That may be the only way to find out.

    Otherwise can anyone suggest a good DL +R DVD player????? I know there are plenty out there that you can get for $60 or so? Thanks again.

    I tried a friends DL DVD+R that they burned and it seemed to work fine on my player. I guess I'll pick me up some DL DVD+Rs and see if I have the same problem. I'll keep you posted. Looks like I have some DL DVD-Rs to sell on ebay.......

    @Lord Soth

    The fact that it PLAYS DL DVD+R doesn't mean it can BURN DL DVD+Rs
