[QUOTE=Jack4321;2188213]To Jethro - I’m using the full paid version of DVDFab Platinum5122.
To larc919 - ?? When I copied it to the hard drive using DVDFAB I copied only the Movie, not the full disc - and that’s what I tried to write to the Maxell, also using DVDFab, when I got the dual layer message. I do have the DVD Shrink program. I am a novice at this. Do I use it on the VOB file after copying it to the hard drive or???
To Superhero - Not sure how to do what you suggest. Under Common Settings - DVD - Write , there is a WRITE SPEED box which is set to “Recommended”; there is a WRITE TYPE of DVD-R MEDIA which is set to “Auto”; there is a DVD WRITABLE MEDIA (DVD-5) SIZE which is set to “4300”; there is a DVD WRITABLE MEDIA (DVD-9) SIZE which is set to “8000”; and there are 4 check boxes which include 1. Overwrite rewritable media automatically (not checked), 2. Set Booktype to DVD-ROM (Only for DVD+R/RW Media) which is checked since the instructions say to do so for my Maxell DVD+R media, 3. Do not eject disc when finished burning, which is not checked, and 4. Verify disc after finished burning which is not checked.
I do not see a choice that specifies DVD-5 as opposed to DVD-9 in this area of Common Settings. I “assumed” it looked at the disc and determined the choice automatically. Is there some other place where this can be set?[/QUOTE]
At the bottom of the main screen just left of center there is a drop-down box that has either dvd 9 or dvd 5 showing just to the right of the box it says “quality” choose the dvd5
