Burning A Double Layer DVD

I have a movie that i need to burn on a double layer disk. My burner is DVDRW IDE1108 single-layer burner and windows explorer won’t recognize the blank double layer dvds is there firmware i can use or do i need to buy a dual layer dvd burner?

Any help would be appreciate… thank you


Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

To burn a dual layer disc you need a burner able to write on these media, so you need to buy a new burner :slight_smile:

Thanks geno888!

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

I suggest also to buy only Verbatim DL discs: too bad these are the only reliable dual layer media currently available

thanks …yea have a interactive movie (7.86gb) that is in .vob files i guess there is no way that i can split it up and put it on two 4.7gb dvds?

hmm… there are some tools to split movies into two separate discs, but I don’t know if it is a good idea with such a movie.

You can try DVD Remake for example, or you can try to compress the movie with DVD Shrink or CloneDVD2 so it can be burned on a single layer disc (no need to buy a new burner then :bigsmile: )

thanks again geno666 going to try the Dvd Shrink
