How can I find out if my DVD burner can burn dual layer disks?

Also, about how much does a DL burner cost?

I've tried that and got a bunch of different answers. I wanted to get some input from the members/experts of Supercheats.

I think so. Like the guy with the problem, I'm using Imgburn. So, if I put the DVD+R DL in, Imgburn will read it and change the booktype to a DVD-ROM, and that'll work, right? (Sorry if that's completely wrong.)

I've heard that the disk freezes when it tries to switch layers. Is this true and is there a way to stop it?

I don't know. I don't use that program...

Anyway why would you want to burn a dual-layer disc?

Check dealers like newegg and tigerdirect for sales. I recently got some 50ct. spindle packs of Memorex 8x DVD+R DL for $33@ at newegg.com.

As for burning, I use Roxio EMC or PowerISO. Both can do DL quite well.

I've burned over 300 DLs.

300? That's quite a bit of money there.

I'll try PowerISO because it sounds cooler lol. I'm still waiting for them to arrive.

Illegal? No... I'm just using ISO files to store stuff, and it's using space, so I want to put them on large disks... Whistle

Yeah, I'll go with that. Smile

If an ISO is over 4.38GB, it was probably meant to be burned to a DL.

I use a Samsung ST-S223L SATA burner with Lightscribe. Got it about a month ago for $30.
