Hi, I have some Memorex Double Layer DVD+R disc (http://www.memorex.com/html/products_detail.php?section=1&SID=5&PID=948&FID=134&opento=3) (I know Verbatim are better, but this is what was given to me) and a NEC ND-3520A dual layer writer: http://www.sw.nec.co.jp/products/optical/en/ND-3520A/index.shtml.
I am having a problem backing up a movie on a double layer disc with DVDShrink, this is the first DVD I’ve ever tried outside of a single layer one. I am using DVDShrink (I set it to an 8.5 GB DVD) because I wanted to remove the title menus and only have the movie and special features I want and languages I want. Anyway, after DVDShrink 3.2 gets done encoding the movie I get an error stating that I am using the wrong format of media. It says that it is expecting a DVD-R/RW or a DVD+R/RW and that it found a CD-R. Why in the world would it say I am trying to write to a CD-R when I have a DVD in the drive?
That leads me to my question, is there a difference between Double Layer DVD and a DL DVD media? Is that my problem? The specs on my DVD writer says DL. Is that just shorthand for double layer is it a different format (dual layer)?
If the double layer/DL isn’t my problem, can someone help me with what might be my problem? Thanks.
