Trying to write on 8.5GB DVD+R DL

Post by robertg_s »

I am trying to burn a project on 8.5GB DVD as it recommended I use a DVD-9 it has worked in the past but I get the following:

Init DVD+R Dual Layer: Layer change set to LBA 1826592 (3.48 GB.)

I was hoping someone might have an idea on what I should do or just scrap this movie? If you require more information I will try to get it.

Thanks
Robert

Hi, the only comment i can make (because i rarely burn dual layer media) is use high end quality.

Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden (sold online) never seen in local store here.

These 2 brand media has never failed me in decades...

Thanks Cougar I had some Verbatim 8.5 GB DL DVDs here tried and it worked that time. I had used the Fuji DVDs before and they had worked before. But thanks to you I got it done and will not be burning movies that require dual layer again any time in the immediate future, but will use only the Verbatim if I do.

Take care and stay safe.

Verbatim DVD+R DL is the only reliable double layer DVD media out there. If Taiyo Yuden makes DVD+R DL, which as far as I knew it didn't, that would probably be quality media, too. I also had good results with TDK's, but I don't know if they still make them. For over 10 years, I've used mostly Verbatim DataLife Plus (NOT the Life Series you find stores. Those are junk.) testing 2 other kinds here and there. The Office Depot ones were unreadable after a year but as I said the TDK ones were still good after a few years.


I'm a beta tester of ImgBurn, and a good majority of the problems we see on the forum there are from cheap (Usually CMC like the Life Series.) double layer DVD media.
