I'm new here and it seams that you guys make burning DVD's into a science, so what better place to ask for advice concerning my DH20A4H dvd burner then here?
The thing is the thing won't burn my DVD+R DL disks. I got several brands, including EMTEC and VERBATIM with mediacodes RICOHJPN-D01-67 and MKM-003-00.
Normal DVD+R disk are no problem, 16x al of them. But no go for the DVD+R DL''s... even at 1x writing speed.
The software I use: Nero 8 and imbBurn. The pop-up i get with imgburn when i want to burn a DVD+R DL, is this:

Now what is my problem? Maybe you guys know something. I also tried the 20A4H.QP53A.patched-fb-eos-eoht firmware,,, posted elsewhere on this forum, but it didnt change a thing...
Also I'm not realy intrested in speed..... 2,4 speed burns are fast enough for me, as long as the come out good.
Thx in advance,
