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.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop with an NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A CD/DVD reader/writer. Also using Showbiz DVD2 to burn backups of VHS tapes I can create single layer DVDs fine. However, when I try to...


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

GSA-4167B hmmm.. thats an old drive... i believe you past it product life (means that you writer can not recognize correctly new modern media such dvd disks.
Reports are: that your drive is able to write on DVD+R Double layer 3.3x-8x (CAV).
Please be sure that your writing speed is between 4x-8x (my favorite speeds for quality DVD disc burning)
Since the drive have already some writing issues... and as you say that it fails on all media..i would suggest you to buy a new one.
If you desperately need IDE adapter you can find on ebay some converter from sata to ide converter.

My DVD Drive keeps asking for me to insert a DVD and there is already a DVD disc in there. This happens when i try to burn a DVD. I have been using Ashampoo to do this.


Does your computer _READ_ any CD disks?
Does your computer _READ_ any DVD disks?

If not, then your NEC writer has "failed" -- spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD Dual-Layer reader/writer.

Can't burn dual layers?


You need:
* a DVD-writer that can burn dual-layer,
* a "blank" disk that supports dual-layer writing,
* software that supports dual-layer writing.

Got all these? Which software? What brand of DVD-writer? What brand of DL media?

First check the program you are using has selected the dvd-rom drive on pc.
If its selected and its still a problem then try changing to different brand of blank DVDR . I have used Tuffdisc , Bulkpaq, Datasafe, and Verbatim and few others on similar model Pioneer DVD writer and it works fine.

What disks to buy? dvdr dvdrw dvd+ dvd-????


DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc, DVDR stands for DVD Recordable and DVDRW for DVD ReWriteable. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs or regular DVD-Video discs, then you will know what a recordable DVD looks like. A recordable DVD stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD Players and most computer DVD-ROMs. If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to store several hours video on a recordable DVD using low bitrates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS, SVHS, SVCD, CVD or VCD. It is also possible to have up to 4.37* GB ordinary data or mix DVD-Video and data on a recordable DVD that can be played by most computer DVD-ROMs.

There are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW have pretty similiar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.

DVD-R and DVD-RW
DVD-R was the first DVD recording format released that was compatible with standalone DVD Players.
DVD-R is a non-rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 93% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-RW is a rewriteable format and it is compatible with about 80% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD-R and DVD-RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double sided 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by DVDForum.

DVD+R and DVD+RW
DVD+R is a non-rewritable format and it is compatible with about 89% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+RW is a rewritable format and is compatible with about 79% of all DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs.
DVD+R and DVD+RW supports single side 4.37 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-5) and double side 8.75 computer GB* DVDs(called DVD-10).
These formats are supported by the DVD+RW Alliance.

DVD+R DL
DVD+R DL or called DVD+R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD+R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

DVD-R DL
DVD-R DL or called DVD-R9 is a Dual Layer writeable DVD-R. The dual layered discs can hold 7.95 computer GB* (called DVD-9) and dual layered double sides 15.9* computer GB (called dvd-18).

I got this info from http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071016055835AApo5e6

If your dvdrom supports dvdrw I would suggest buying these disks as you can re-write over them if you need too.
Most recent dvdroms support all of the above.
I hope this helps
