Burning DL disks on LG 4163b

Can my drive not burn to a Dl -r disk? I have a Panasonic Player in the lounge and after trying a +r dl disk, the Panny wouldnt play it, got some -r dl disks and now it seems the writer wont support these - is that right?

No it can’t write -DL.But DL+ compatibility is excellent as fas as I am concerned.
Did you bittset them or not?Because if you didn’t, they won’t play.


#3

how do you mean bitset? book type? did that but didnt play, but will on my yamada (altho it freezes on layer change)

What kind of DVD+R DL disk you used in your burner?

Traxdata and FUJI works fine for me.

It was a Traxdata, burned at 2x, used Dvddecrypter to read and write the disk, 2 came up with errors and the 3rd only plays if you skip chapters during the layer change (but not in my Panasonic)

Bought Verbatim -r dl disks without checking they were compatible first!

-R DL is compatable with only a few dvd players, I would stay away from them. :slight_smile:


#7

+R DL compatibility is far more higher than for -R DL, yet.
In most cases, +R DL Booktype is automatically set to DVD-ROM.

My guess is the problem is probably with that Traxdata media you used. The most compatible DVD+DL media out there is Verbatim DVD+DL. All the other brands either :

  1. Cannot burn successfully and end up as coasters
  2. Burn successfully but have problems reading back on certain players

If you can, take the Verbatim DVD-DL discs you bought back to the store you got them from and try to change them for Verbatim DVD+DL discs. If those won’t work on your Panasonic player, nothing will.
