Burns dvds fine wont burn dual layer dvds

Just bought a new lite on burner and it works great burning a normal dvd but when trying to burn a dual layer dvd it gets to about 50% and then stops...is this a problem with the actual unit or maybe i dont have the settings correct.. anyone have a clue.. also would it have anything to do with slave and master selection..any help please I have the same problem with my HP LightScribe dvd640i DVD±RW Dual. I tried differenet media brands (Verbatim, memorex, fujifilm...), different applications (Nero, DVDfab, ImgBurn) the result is the same: it writes first layer and then stops at about 50% with a write error. No problems with the regular single layer DVDs. I would really appreciate if anyone can help with this problem.

This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.

Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,

HP DVD 740e wont burn Dual Layers anymore!


Try re-installing the software associated with the burner, so it installs the necessary drivers and files needed for the burner to work according to your needs.

Also check the connections and cables... sometimes moving it around causes the cables to loose some contacts.

Hope this helps...

Problems Burning DVD's


Ya didn't say what Operating System?... Ensure ya have all the correct "Settings" in the Burn software. Sometimes the actual type of DVD media can be an issue... some dvd's just don't "Like" some DVD's I have found... try the best brand ya can afford... if still no go.. try Alcohol 120% & CopyToDVD both use their "Own" "Drivers" and I have had great success.. where others have failed..

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.
