Can my DVD Writer, write Dual Layer DVDs?

Can my dvd writer, write dual layer discs?

I have a TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-W162Z ATA Device.

I tried using the nero info tools, but unfortunately, I use a windows 7 and it won't install. On my system, I also have Nero 7.

Would I be able to burn a dual layer disc?

Did you at least go to the manufacture site to see what their specs on the drive was? Is this a separate purchase or package drive? And what did the neroinfo tool tell you can you give a screen shot of that??? If it can burn dvd it will tell you on that info screen.

Re: Can my DVD Writer, write Dual Layer DVDs?

According to Samsung, this model should be able to write to DL media, both +R and -R. I advise only using Verbatim brand +R DL disks however. http://www.samsung.com/me/products/o...w/sh_w162z.asp

Use ImgBurn for double layer burns. It is a free burning program found here: www.imgburn.com ImgBurn has the ability to show a drive's capabilities, like Nero InfoTool. Within ImgBurn, look at Tools-->Drive-->Capability. Imgburn works very well in Win 7.

And, under Tools -> Drive -> Capabilities, will tell you what you can burn. It'll also check for the latest firmware, if you ask nice.

It is a package purchase, so I cant ask them. =/ I didn't get to install neroinfo so I didn't get any information at all. =/

I see, thank you, thank you. I have tried installing it. Never mind it. I've seen it. I can burn DVD + RW and DVD+R DLs. Thanks so much! =D
