I am considering buying a dual layer blank dvd to transfer my old vhs tapes. My question is, which one do I buy, the DVD-R DL or the DVD+R DL? What is the difference?? Will any DVD DL brand do? I really want a disc that I can add more videos to in case there is still more space to fill up, without having to erase the video that is already in the disc. I bought the Panasonic DMR-EZ47Vk Dvd Recorder

how long is the whole process of burning the dual layer dvd's
your computers hard drive might be getting to hot try blowing out all of the dust from your laptop computers keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines. dust causes static which causes lots of unforseen problems with a computer and its parts also you might buy a laptop usb 3 fan cooler pad just to keep things cool/er you might check the leads ((motherboard to hard drive)) they might be bad/faulty hope this helps
i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.
Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/CleanUp_d4895.html
Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.
the blank media must be compatible with the burner drive that you're using... meaning if the drive is for CD-R you can only use CD-R blanks not CD+R. if the drive is CD-/+R then you can use either CD-R or CD+R
