Dual-Layer burning software question



I’m about to purchase a Dual-Layer DVD±RW drive, but I wanted to know if the software I already have is capable of DL burning. I have Nero 5.5 and EasyCD 5.2 Platinum. Are either of these suitable or do I need newer versions?

Thanks in advance,



If you don’t want any problems or any $5 coasters :eek: use DVD Decrypter. How can you go wrong its free. :slight_smile:


I could be wrong, but I don’t think those versions support Dual layer burning. I think you’d have to upgrade. I would imagine they’re fine for regular DVD+R/-R’s though.


5.5 will not detect the latest drives from NEC. Select the drive that you want to buy, then upgrade the software if required. Most retail drives come with a burn application.
