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.

Cant burn dvd


You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL discs not burning in Nero 6


Are you sure that you are putting in a blank disc? What happens when you put the disc inside the DVD writer? does it show up as a blank disc? This could be one of the reason for the multi session disc box getting greyed out.

I have last week just got and installed a LG BH10 BluRay rewriter. It does read BD and DVD discs okay. It does burn BD25 blank discs though I have to use Imgburn as DVDFab does not seem to think there is...


Hi raywalton826
I think you could try using Verbatim or Sony blanks and use DVD Identifier from http://download.cnet.com/DVD-Identifier/3000-2646_4-50766.html , just to make sure you
haven' t been sold crappy stuff .
I also would get in touch with DVDFab to expose my issue with my device and their product .
DVDFab 's guys are extremely client friendly at http://forum.dvdfab.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3
Best regards,

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.

If the firmware was never updated, it can cause this.
A tool like Nero infotool will show the drive firmware version or you can scan your registry for "4481" and locate an entry in <HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\DeviceClasses>
that shows the drive model and a numeric fw version.

You can go to HP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&softwareitem=pv-28110-1
or to Dell http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Others/Dell-Dimension-8300-HLDS-GCC4481-B-Firmware-28012005.shtml
and use their firmware update.
