Depends what program the dvd was burnt with. Try re burning the dvd with another program like Nero. Keep an eye on your options.

Whats a dual layer disc mean then?


A dual layer disc is a DVD which is able to hold double the info.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD#Dual-layer_recording )
Dual-layer recording (sometimes also known as double-layer recording) allows DVD-R and DVD+R discs to store significantly more data-up to 8.54 gigabytes per disc, compared with 4.7 gigabytes for single-layer discs. Along with this, DVD-DLs have slower write speeds as compared to ordinary DVDs and when played on a DVD player a slight transition can sometimes be seen between the layers. DVD-R DL was developed for the DVD Forum by Pioneer Corporation; DVD+R DL was developed for the DVD+RW Alliance by Philips and Mitsubishi Kagaku Media (MKM).[23]
A dual-layer disc differs from its usual DVD counterpart by employing a second physical layer within the disc itself. The drive with dual-layer capability accesses the second layer by shining the laser through the first semitransparent layer. In some DVD players, the layer change can exhibit a noticeable pause, up to several seconds.[24] This caused some viewers to worry that their dual-layer discs were damaged or defective, with the end result that studios began listing a standard message explaining the dual-layer pausing effect on all dual-layer disc packaging.
DVD recordable discs supporting this technology are backward-compatible with some existing DVD players and DVD-ROM drives.[23] Many current DVD recorders support dual-layer technology, and the price is now comparable to that of single-layer drives, although the blank media remain more expensive. The recording speeds reached by dual-layer media are still well below those of single-layer media.
There are two modes for dual-layer orientation. With Parallel Track Path (PTP), used on DVD-ROM, both layers start at the inside diameter (ID) and end at the outside diameter (OD) with the lead-out. With Opposite Track Path (OTP), used on many Digital Video Discs, the lower layer starts at the ID and the upper layer starts at the OD, where the other layer ends; they share one lead-in and one lead-out.

My dvd player will only read the first half of a dvd


It's easier to read the first layer of a dual-layer DVD. To read the second layer, the laser must shine through a translucent plastic layer. DL DVDs are more likely to have problems if they are smudged or scratched, and any smoke film or dirt on the laser lens becomes more difficult to see through for that second layer.

Start by cleaning the heck out of the DVD, then buy/use a DVD lens cleaner disk. Cigarette smoke and dual-layer DVD drives do not mix.

some of the newer dvd's are made double layer and recently they've been working on triple layer dvd's. basically a single layer dvd holds 5gb of information, a dual can hold 10gb and a triple can hold 15gb (those are approximates). by making it more layers, they can put the fullscreen and the widescreen edition on the same movie disc. some of the 'lower end' dvd players don't have the capabilities to play these dual or triple layer discs.

When trying to play dvd wont due to saying either unknown disc or defective disc


Hey,
As i don't know the model of your dvd player or the type of dvd you are using I can only give you a very basic response for possible issues.  1. you are using a "burned" dvd on an older dvd player. Some older dvd players can't read dvd's burned from a computer. 2. The lense is dirty, scratched or damaged.. if other disks work in the dvd player, than this option is out the window. 3. DVD is damaged or defective. Just like the previous solution, if the disk works in other dvd players, this option is out the window 4. The DVD is from a different Region. Here in Canada and the US we are region 1, if you get a disk from Europe or japan. they are region 2 dvd's and thus don't work in our north american machines. 5. Some older DVD players have difficulty reading dual layer discs - just a though
I hope those were helpful, if not message me back with the dvd player model number and the movie or type of disk you were using.

Did you glance in the manual to see what types of DVD it would play (typ. DVD-9, DVD-4, etc.) and try it?  This site can't prevent you reading appropriate manuals, you know.

Many commercial films are written to what's known as dual-layer DVD discs, which are like two DVDs sandwiched together. Movie studios try to pack as much cool stuff as they can onto a DVD, so by the time you add movie trailers, documentaries, and other special features, the amount of space necessary far exceeds the 4.7GB capacity of a regular DVD disc. Using a dual-layer disc expands the capacity to 9.4GB, which is enough to hold the movie and many extras, depending on how long the film is. What you seem to be experiencing is a problem related to the DVD player changing layers (when it must adjust the focus of the laser to read the second layer of the disc), which is usually indicated by a brief pause during playback. In the early days of DVD, many players had difficulty during the layer change, which could cause the DVD player to lock up during playback. In other cases, a badly formatted or damaged disc could be the culprit, so you should check the condition of the DVDs that are giving you problems. Since you mentioned that sometimes they work, your problem could stem from a scratch or a fingerprint. But, if the condition of the DVD is flawless, you may have to consider getting your DVD player repaired, replaced, or exchanged (since you mentioned it was new). Since it is a portable DVD player, you may want to try running the DVD player when it is plugged into an AC receptacle. This will at least rule out any relationship to the battery, though a remote possibility. But, portable devices do strange things when its battery is low.
