help burning double layer discs!.....?! :(

  theDarkness 15:26 02 Sep 2005

Ive had no problems using normal layer discs, but more often than not (50% of the time) with double layers I get an error message in nero, usually just after finished burning the second layer, and the disc does not not play properly. Could it just be a case of the discs not being compatible? Should I try different discs? Im using tuffdisc dvd+r dl's, supposedly a good brand..

The log file for nero on the last error (if it helps):

Although I have a DL DVD burner I haven't tried burning to Dual Layer/Double Layer disks yet. Mainly because of the price. The cheapest DL disc I can find is £4. Whereas standard 4.7 DVDs are 24p each.

As an add-on I don't think I would be very happy making coasters as £4 a time. A couple of 4.7 standard coasters at 24p or a few CD coasters at 8p a time could be acceptable.

Which version of Nero you are using. If it is older than then download this version from Nero. They have done some fixes there.

Well I have got Nero but I still don't think I would try DL at £4 a disk

I am sure I bought DL +R for a pound from a computer fair!!!!
Though I wasn't successful with it first time.I burnt a second disk successfuly. Frankly speaking haven't tried it 3rd time. Single layers are good value for money.

Im using Nero, the last update I think, from last year. Yeah, youre all absolutely right about single layer discs being much better value for money when double layer +Rs are coming in at around £2 or more for just one disc (cheapest I can find was from bigpockets uk - on my first post). I just wanted to try them out, thats all. It seems to take around 40 mins to burn one, and its slightly annoying when you find out that its a failed burn alot of the time :(

cheers for the replies though! :)

I noticed on bigpockets that for double layered dvds they state the writing surface colour- do some drives prefer different types? I was using purple coloured discs.
