hi this might be a very newb question,
my dvd writer is a mad dog md-16x3dvd9-8x, i'm tryin to burn a dvd backup to dvd-r dl ridata. i have backedup the dvd using dvd decryptor. i try to burn the iso using dvd decryptor, imgburn, and nero. they all give an incompatible format right before attempting to burn. in nero it does identify the disk as a dvd-r dl. i heard that dvd-r dl does suck, is that the problem. shouldn't it at least attempt to burn? oh yah and i do have most up to date firmware
info in dvdd before burn
