You'r right I was trying to simulate with +R type, I changed to -R type and the "simulate" option appears again, but I still cant select the "Write Method" as it is grayed out.
x abalone: I notice, seeing the picture attached to your post that the nero inform of my drive doesnt show the " DVD+R9 Double Layer" in the disc types of my drive. why???
Before I forget Thanks to all for your help.
