Burning Netflix DVD to DVD +R DL (dual layer)

Hey all, I'm a complete newbie. I tried to burn a Ntflix DVD "Once Upon a Time in America" with almost everything. I tried AnyDVD, Nero 7, CloneDVD, DVD Decrypter (DVD->ISO->DVD DL), DVD Shrink (No compression, DVD-9), and none of them worked PERFECTLY.

The burned DVD would always play up almost half way through the standalone DVD players, and just JAM or LOCK. But it plays fine on my computer. I suspect it's something to do with the layer break, but have no idea how to modify layer breaks or anything. Not even really sure what the damn layer breaks are.

Heard about how u can use PGCEdit or IFOEdit, but I have no idea how those damn things work. I burned about 7 failed DVD+R DL already, so I really really really need someone's expertise. HELP ME!!!

Re: Burning Netflix DVD to DVD +R DL (dual layer)

I really donno. I'm a complete newbie too. I know they make some DVDs that somehow become unplayable after a certain time period, maybe that has something to do with it, but I highly doubt it. Let's assume you're making a DVD backup of something you own for example though. From what I've read I suspect it may have something to do with "+" format. If you have any "-" format DL discs you may want to try those. Also another option would be to use a program like DVD X Copy and compress the DL disc down to a single layer format and cut out all the special features. Essentially only keeping the main audio and video tracks. Then the program will compress the video file down to fit on a single layer disc. The final product usually looks pretty good. Anyway, hope I helped you some, and good luck.

Re: Burning Netflix DVD to DVD +R DL (dual layer)

Dual layer burning checklist:
- DVD Decrypter ISO Read/Write modes.
- Verbatim DVD+R DL media.
- A standalone player that supports the media.

Might wanna check that last one at www.videohelp.com

And, thanks for trying iiiceaser, but DVD-R DL is much, much less compatible with standalone players, and DVD X Copy is horribly outdated software.
