I recently purchased a new Memorex 510L DVD ±RW It supports Dual Layer or DVD9. The drive came bundled with Nero. Turns out that the software is not permanent, it times out after 30 days. I wouldn’t want it anyway because, ironically, it does not seem to support dual layer recording. I could buy their full product for $79, but…
I want to record long videos, up to 3.5 hours. I want them to be in very good quality but not high definition. I have tried several software titles. One told me I didn’t have enough room and degraded the video to such an extent I could barely see the images for all the pixelation. That was NEO DVD 7. Another, Burn4Free managed to burn the only about 2 hours, but I had to break video segments into less than 4 gigabyte files. The resylting video was less than satisfactory. Rather choppy and the colors had paled.
Yes, I am using the DL discs.
What software out there can actually burn the near 4 hours Dual Layer is rated at? I cannot even get from the product specs that software supports DL. Some specifically mention Blu Ray. Where are the comparison charts.
