Problems playing 2nd layer AVCHD (NEC 3500AG)

Hi. I am trying to burn a DVD+R DL DVD with AVCHD content to play on a PS3. I author with Total Media Extreme and burn the BDMV folder using ImgBurn. The DVD burns fine and everything on the 1st layer plays on the PS3 fine until the layer break. Then the video stops and starts and then stops altogether and picks up much further down the video.

It’s probably the poor media but I am making strides with different firmware. Before, I couldn’t even start burning until I updated the firmware. Can anybody recommend a better firmware I can try or any other suggestions? Thanks.

Windows Vista
NEC 3500AG (external USB)
2.TF firmware

Get better DL media, means Verbatim DL.
