Hi, i have had my lite on dvd-dual layer burner for a over a year now, burning over a 100 dvds using nero 7 without any problems. But it developed a problem about a month ago, the dvds that i burn now, when played back on a dvd player the movie starts sticking half way through and stops playing. I haven't done any thing to the computer and i have tried other burning software, burning at a slower speed x4 and compressing the movie to 2gb to see if it was the discs but still the discs start to stick half way through. i use princo dvd-r 1x8 discs. Is the laser on the dvd getting tired? do you know of any problems like this? please tell me if theres a solution to this problem? thanks.

DVD discs come in two capacity sizes.
Single layer DVD have a capacity of 4.7 Gb
Dual layer DVD have a capacity of 8.5 Gb
Some DVD burners are single layer burners only and cannot burn dual layer discs.
The error message you are getting would indicate that the disc you are using is not large enough to copy all your program material.
This is in no way a proper technical answer, but certain DVD burners like specific brands of media, I have heard this for years and it's true, but you seem to have tried several types of media brands. I would try a -R, from Verbatum, if that doesn't work take it back and try a different model, you have done everything that you are supposed to.I found that the -R works best for me in my desktop and laptop, one is Lightscribe other is not, the -R works best for me.
I had the same problem before upgrading my RAM. Seems video burning software like nero are RAM hogs; if you do not have a large amount of RAM then it slowers the burning speed down to a crawl.[ BTW I didn't get maximum burning speeds using nero on a Windows Vista computer until I upgraded to 2 GB RAM] Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
Greetings, Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com. I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond. Take Care, -WN
