Re: Problems burning dual layer DVDs

maybe not younger,just not any smarter....
i could never MAKE those things work... im clueless as far as where to begin if the
DVD stops burning because of an error....i guess that what you mean as far as the home consumer...ya?(though im probably a bit below average) i dont see any DVD5 burning problem threads.... so why do 9's have so many more issues than 5's? i know im not alone here...(hello hello??) anyway i do think its worth the time and effort(& $) to make them work every time. ill choose to compress for the time being and do trades to get the hi res if needed.......

25 gigs on a single layer disc, and 50 gigs on a dual layer disc. It uses a blue laser vs. a red laser. Blue lasers can focus on smaller pits than red lasers, so they can store more data.

It's the new high definition disc format that will replace DVDs.

Blu-Ray won the format war. HD-DVD was the loser.

Likely the type of discs you were using or NERO, if you're still using that worthless program?
If you haven't trying a different brand of discs, do that.
Before you attempt to burn one, reboot your comp and burn before you re-connect to torrents or start searching the web. Let all your comps resources go to burning the disc.

Single layer dvd's is the winner, those are the only discs that will last the test of time.

because asking a computer to stream 4GB is a completely different task than asking it to stream 8GB.
just because you purchased a DL burner doesnt mean it will function to the standards required for proper playback.
those people currently having an issue burning DL discs prove the point as the rest of us are fine & have always have been fine.

sorry, im being wordy..

if you cant burn a DL, its because your equipment sucks.

That is a myth perpetuated by people that need to research quality drives and media. Search here for people with trouble burning and you will see that it is common (people noted above) for both DVD5 and DVD9. I have burned two dual layer coasters and it was due to a bad drive that I had to replace. I have burned maybe 200 successful ones. I have never had a problem with playback. The computer than burned the majority of my duals (99 percent) was built in 2002. I consider it very outdated.

If you have a bad drive it will show up quicker with dual layer media for the reasons Wolf mentions above. It will eventually show it's head with DVD5 also if it is bad.

Will flash drives someday replace optical discs? Would that be too expensive, and would the data not last as long?

Shopkin, try Verbatim DVD+R DL. Memorex sucks, and DVD-R DL aren't that great I think.
