Re: Format a DVD +R DL onto a LG Burner
LG makes many different models. DL disks are dual layer, which are used for video DVDs. They do not not need to be formateed. Write once media like DVD+R, DVD-R, etc are not usually formatted unless you want to use them like a write once floppy. If you are trying to make a data DVD (for use with a computer only), then I don't think you want to use dual layer media.

IF the connector doesn't fit it MAY be the data buss is NOT compatible.
You should verify that the data is the same such as IDE which is different thab SCSI which is also used.
You dod not put model numbers so that any of us could investigate for you. Find the model numbers and then use Google to find what data format the unitss are such as IDE, SATA, or SCSI and make sure they are the same.
Yes it can, here are the specifications : -
Specifications of LG GSA-H40N
There is no mention of Dual Layer support in any specifications I can find about this recorder. DL media is a very nice plus, so if it supported it, I imagine it would figure prominently in marketing and on the drive tray, too. All this tends to make me believe that while it offers some nice features, DL media is not one of them.
The LG site turned up little about the drive, but I did find some sales info below:
I recently purchased the DW-100 for my HG-20. Works like a charm.
Some quick gotchas though... People complain that Canon was not 100% clear about it's use. You can only burn standard definition (i.e. "non" hi def) DVDs if that's how the camera recorded it... I never looked to see if my HG-20 is capable of the old stuff, but basically the camera is sending data to the burner and there's no real conversion going on. Some Canon models record in Standard Def others do not.
Personally, I use the burner to backup videos onto standard DVD-R (or DVD-R DL) discs. The discs are burned in a Blu-ray compatible format. (but you get 4.7 or 8GB onto a disc vs the 30GB you'd get on a Blu-ray disc - but don't complain b/c the Blu-ray discs cost a fortune.)
If you don't own a Blu-Ray player you can connect the USB b/w the "camera & burner", and then the HDMI b/w the "camera & TV" and send the video from the burner, thru the camera, and watch on a Hi Def TV. (Complex but it does work and the picture quality is great).
Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense
in window under my computer is your DVD writer shown as DVD-RAM drive, if not then re-instal the drivers for your DVD.
If its installed as DVD-RAM then right click the DVD-RAM icon in the my computer and choose properties, under the recording tab select enable recording, try burning a cd using the windows xp based roxio by sending your files to the DVD-ROM.
If it burn a CD this way then all you neec to do is use a different CD burning application software.
