Unable to burn DL discs

I have been burning on DVD+/-R and now I want to burn my DVD+R DL discs, but I checked on Nero Infotool and it doesn't show the option that I can do that. Can anyone tell me is there something I need to install or do for that option? Thank you.

CD/DVD drives will always show 0 bytes if there is no media present.
You will need extra software in order to burn DVD such as Roxio, Nero. I beleive the LG burners show come with software, you will need to install it in, and run it to burn DVDs.
Nero does offer a free version that will burn DVDs

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 and download the _free_ "Ashampoo Burning 6" software.
Install it, and use it to create & burn onto dual-layer media.

I have an LG writer in my computer which is capable of burning DL (double layer) disks & I use Nero 6 which works okay with normal DVD's but I cannot burn my DL disks which are Moser Bayer 8.5GB disks....

If a software don't give the options to choose between regular disc and 8.5 ( which is the one that is used for the originals movies) then you need another program. DVDFab does give that option. Search for DVD clone. But Nero should have the copy disc option, which you don't have to convert or anything like that, it should work.

Burning problem

Try burning at a slower speed, like 16x or less. If your burner is a CAV-type, it will burn faster as it moves toward the outside of the disk and can be more prone to errors that way.

Also, have you tried playing the burned disk in another player, and did it show the same symptoms?

I have the same issue with the LG GSA-H20L and the LG GSA-42N, but mine was with TDK DVDs.

I contacted LG Support and they told me that TDK disks are not recommended for use with their DVD Burners.

I asked them if there were any others they did not reccomend and they said no.

Going through my cupboard, I found Memorex Printable DVD-Rs that will burn OK.

I also tried Sony DVD+R and a generic brand, but they will not burn either.

I also found that these LG drives do not recognise Laser CD-R.

In short, for burning, try either Memorex, LG and some others, but don't try TDK, Sony or Laser.

Good Luck
