Problems with Dual Layer

vbimport

#1

Hi, I’m new to this forum and I am wondering if I might ask for some help. I am trying to burn a DVD+R DL (memorex - looks like Ritek) with my Lite-on DVDRW SHM-165H6S. Nero Info reports that it will support those disks. However, when I try to burn a video disk created in DVD Architect, I get the following… It looks like it switches to looking for a DVD R inand then spits out a message that thedisk is illegal? I am running firmware HSOE - which I believe is the latest… Am I doing something wrong? Or is is it my drive - or is it the media? Thanks in advance.

Everything looks good but yeah it’s most likely the media. Use Verbatim +R DL MIS=Made In Singapore

How big is the file?

This looks like to me that it will fit on a Single Layer. When you have to burn Dual Layer, I would suggest using ImgBurn & the advice given above.

BTW, this is to do with Roxio, if you don’t need it, turf it.

yeah i overlooked the UDMA thing :doh:

No you didn’t, it’s probably an nforce/Nvidia board which confuses Nero.

Try ImgBurn as was suggested.

I never knew about this one, but it is why I say check & not fix when it comes to Nero now, because it seems different versions get confused a lot about DMA.

Try ImgBurn as was suggested.[/QUOTE]Actually i was waiting for someone to confirm that. It would still be a good idea for them to check it in their Device Manager though.

[B]EFD Inspector[/B] is a small little app that provides a lot of system info.

I wonder if it will work with nforce chipsets.

Try it.

Nero reports the DMA mode wrong when m$ ide drivers are not used.

I’ll suggest to buy better DL media, Verbatim DL.

LITE-ON SHM-165H6S - Writing to a dual layer DVD. Addresses the ILLEGAL DISC / ILLEGAL DISK error situation in Nero StartSmart. The message from Record Now is “Please insert a blank or rewritable disc into the LITE-ON DVDRW (D:) drive”.

The following assumes you know some basic things about Windows XP. Creating a Restore Point. Editing the registry. If you have a different OS, this may be helpful in guiding you towards making similar changes in your OS. Please be sure to readeverything below before actually doing anything. You need to understand what all the steps are before plowing forward!

Here we go:
Create a Restore Point.

RUN regedit.

Export the registry as a backup precaution.

Navigate to this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. Be sure you are working in CurrentControlSet, as there are other similarly named folders.

In the RIGHT pane, RENAME the entries for UpperFilters and LowerFilters. There may be only one of these. If so, rename it. Use your initials as a prefix, followed by an underscore character. Something like JDC_LowerFilters works just fine. DO NOT delete this value, because you will need to go back into the registry later and rename this entry back to it’s original name (removing the JDC_ part).

Exit the registry editor.

Reboot/Restart.

For me, at this point, RecordNow no longer recognizes the drive. Sonic MYDVD does not recognize the drive. Arcsoft Showbiz does not recognize the drive. Reinstalling it may fix (I’ll be tryng this later). Nero StartSmart does work, and will write to SONY dual layer DVDs. Not recommended are Memorex, Maxell, and any generic brands or store named brands e.g. Officemax or Staples at 16x1-16x. I’ve heard rumors that Imation, Verbatim, Ridata, Ritek, Sony, and Philips may all work. I tried TDK, and it did NOT work.

Also, whatever software you may be using to edit video and create DVDs may not recognize the drive at this point. So the recommendation is…

  1. Perform the above steps to rename the registry key.

  2. Reboot/Restart.

  3. Using Nero, write the video files to the Sony DVD+R DL disk in your drive. On my computer, this took about 50 minutes to write 7.8 GB.

  4. After creating all your Sony DVD+R DL DVDs, shut down Nero.

  5. Edit the same registry key, renaming UpperFilters and LowrFilters to their original names (removing your initials and the underscore character).

  6. Exit the registry editor.

  7. Reboot/Restart.

… and now you should be back to where you were before you started, with everything being functional - except possibly for writing to dual layer DVDs again! After re-editing the registry key entry to the original name, Nero StartSmart continued to write to SONY DL DVDs successfully. I was surprised about this, but not upset! :slight_smile:

You can of course try different software to write the data to the Sony DL DVDs. If you find something that works, PLEASE post it here so we can all benefit from your experiences. Same with alternative DVD DL media.

Thanks! And good luck to you…

This is useless… it may will give you successfully burned crap DL media, but full of errors and in the end useless wasted money…


#13

No problemo, chef.

I returned here today with some good information to share regarding this situation.

But I see that my research and suggestions are useless.

So, I’ll be on my way without sharing.

Bye! :bow:


#14

Did you actually fully scan those DL you used??
