Okay, I've burned several hundred single-layer +R discs, and w/my NEC 3520A and a few v-e-r-y- pricey Verbatim +R DL discs, I'm ready to start experimenting. I'd like to reduce my chances of burning an $8 coaster, so I thought I'd turn to you folks for advice.
I generally use DVD Shrink to encode my movie backups. I have Nero (184.108.40.206), so I let it tap the Nero engine to burn. I'm successful prob. 99% of the time. Success rate should go higher now that I've switched to Verbatim solely.
Now it's time to jump into the murky waters of dual/double layer. First of all, can Shrink handle a dual-layer disc? IOW, would all I have to do is select "DVD-9" as my disc size?
Would I also need to uncheck the "Preferences", "Output Files" tab, "Remove layer break" checkbox? Or should I leave it checked and let Nero decide where to put the layer break?
Or conversely, should I not use Shrink at all to burn dual-layer discs?
Thanks for any advice on this.
