You can only change a DVD book type if you are using DVD+R. You can't change a book type on DVD-R. You are probably using -R, which should be just fine. I personally prefer -R, but both types work pretty well.

If you are burning video to +R disks you should be able to change the book type to DVD ROM in one of the option boxes.

Having burned a dvd i try to play it in my dvd player but the dvd freezes half way through so i try it in the ps3 and does the same around the same spot on the dvd


If it is a dual layer DVD (8.4GB), you are probably freezing at the layer break. This is the place on the DVD where the burner shifts the burn from the first layer to the second layer of the DVD. There is a lot of this problem. It is due in part to variables in DVD burners and readers, but mostly in the quality of the media being burned. Dual layer DVD media is very finicky and I personally avoid it if at all possible. I have had too many issue of incompatibility of media to burners and as a result burned too many coasters for my liking. Obviously, if the media is going to give the burners issues, what do you suppose will happen when trying to use it in a player? If you must burn dual-layer DVD media, you are best to buy the best. It costs more, but the headaches are not worth the apparent savings. I have had luck with the VERBATIM Dual Layer Media, but have been told that there are occasionally issues here too, depending upon where the media was produced. There is a great deal of information on the wen you can persue on this,,,a simple Google on best Dual-Layer DVD media will open Pandora box!

Dual Layer how to burn?


The software that came with the DVD-DL device should be able to burn 8GB to dual-layer media.

If not, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and download the _free_ "Ashampoo Burning 6" software.
Install it, and use it to create & burn onto dual-layer media.

Hp dual layer dvd burner with light scribe doesnt recognize the dual layer disc as dual layer


You may have to install some kind of DVD burner software such as Nero burning ROM to burn dual layer DVDs. the default windows CD burner does not recognize dual layer disks. You can also use this free software for burning dual layer disks

Samsung dvd rw with octo edge dvd rom says burning failed for dual layer disc


I will presume that you do not have a combo DVD.
If you have a "combo" drive, it doesn't burn any DVDs.

First, has the burner ever burned dual-layer DVD's successfully?
Radio Shack has a laser cleaner ($13). Read & follow the directions. It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved.

Recommendation:
Use Verbatim DVD's, they are the best. Samsung is also a top brand.

Can't Burn Dual-Layer Disks


First, be sure your DVD burner is capable of burning dual-layered discs- Second, it may be rather an issue of copy protection on the disc. Have you succesfully copied commercial DVD's in this fashion? I'm unsure if I'm allowed to mention any software that might assist you in that regard- google is your friend.
