Had a question yesterday about dual layering. Now, it won't play anything. The discs that were playing yesterday will now only play for a minute and then they stop and eject. Or they will start(I'll get a PLAY on the screen) and then the screen turns black and nothing happens. Could use any help or advice thanks

some of the newer dvd's are made double layer and recently they've been working on triple layer dvd's. basically a single layer dvd holds 5gb of information, a dual can hold 10gb and a triple can hold 15gb (those are approximates). by making it more layers, they can put the fullscreen and the widescreen edition on the same movie disc. some of the 'lower end' dvd players don't have the capabilities to play these dual or triple layer discs.
I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!
is the model compatible with dual-layer blue ray discs? check the specifications you got with the player if it is not then your problem may be that some of the discs you are playing are dual-layer and the player cant handle it
yes there is, there is plenty of software that will actually make any size move fit on a regular 4.7gb dvd, my definate favorite is CloneDvd2, also nero will, hope this helps and anything else i can help you with i am happy to help, also the most likely reason your dvd wont play the dual layer disc is that it doesn't support dual layer.
Its probably compabitilities issues. Try -rs. There a lot better since they are more known type and technology. the difference is +r have more editing features but in your case it doesn't matter because your just copying.
So it won't play movies most of the time? Time to replace the drive more than likely. When a laser gets weak, sometimes it wont read the DVD's, but will read regular cd's without problems. Eventually it won't read anything. The laser requires more power to read a dvd than a regular cd. The laser itself it adjustable, doesn't always work, but it's a sure sign that its on its way out. They are cheap to replace these days. :)
