Is it everyone’s experience that DVD+R DL media does not last as long as advertised on the Panasonic recorders? I have a Panasonic DMR-ES15 and am using Memorex-branded DVD+R DL media. At XP speed, I can only record 55 or 56 minutes on each layer – rather than the advertised 60 minutes. (At SP and higher, I can record the expected multiple of 55 or 56 minutes.) Is this the case for all DVD+R DL media on this recorder, or is it just the Memorex-branded DL media?
I don’t have this problem with single-layer media; all disks I’ve tried last the full 60 minutes.
Thanks very much.
