I just posted the article Nero - First to support Layer-Jump Recording (LJR) of dual-layer DVD-R media.

Nero, leaders in digital media technologies,
announced today that its applications, Nero Burning ROM and Nero Express, now
support Layer-Jump Recording (LJR) of dual-layer DVD-R media, thus…

OK, hopefully this will not lead into more problems regarding DL… :open_mouth:

Hmm - I am missing something here - if dual layer media has the data written to one side then the other, as per normal dvd’s - and one layer is read back before the other - how can nero split sequential data into tiny bits to burn in stages progressively across both layers?

> if dual layer media has the data written to one side then the other, as per normal dvd’s - and one layer is read back before the other - how can nero split sequential data into tiny bits to burn in stages progressively across both layers? < With this new (and quite useless?) “innovation” data is NOT written to one side, then the other, but every session has two layers written. Hence the name “Layer Jump”.

I read this as writing both sides at once, albeit in sector size blocks, but not having file 1 split in fragments across both layers, but still keeping file1 + file 2 on layer 1, with file 3 on layer 2? If nero splits files into bits and writes segment 1 of file 1 to layer 1, segment 2 of file 1 to layer 2, etc - hmm, nero may do this but how will readers (firmware) know what is going on? I thought the standard and all readers expect to complete one layer and then go to the other - if you skip between them, as with long movies, you get the infamous layer-change (1-2 seconds wait) - for normal files this would slow things down immeasurably - or not? Confused - yep, I am.
