Hi,

Can anyone help?

I have an Nec 3500ag DL burner and burned a dvd using a Datasafe DVD+R DL disc and nero 6.

The disc burned fine, with no error messages in nero (which automatically set the bookmark as dvd-rom). But the burnt doesn't play properly on my Sony DVD player (dvp 735d) and neither does it play on the Nec drive I burnt it with! It gets stuck when forwarding to the next chapter after chapter 6 and also during playback in chapter 6. I suspect that there are problems shifting from one layer to the next.

I am using the newst official Nec firmware (2.18)

Can anyone help? Has anyone had the same problems? Are DL discs generally playable on most DVD players? Am I doing something wrong?

Any help MUCH appreciated (as I don't want to waste any more of these pricey DL discs!!)

Thanks.

Someone posted elsewhere that this may be related to Nero.

Search for earlier posts on this for more info.

(And please post your results if you decide to gamble (current prices) $10 per disc on further testing. I have an NEC 3500 but haven't tested DL yet, so am curious.)

Thanks guys and sorry for the double posts. I will be reading replies on the other post (http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/fb.asp?m=100286) from now onwards. Can I close this one?

Thanks.

Thanks - I've figured it out now; I changed my NEC bookmark to DVD-ROM using DVDInfo, then I rippied an ISO image of the disc using decrypter, then burned that using copytodvd and it works! Thanks.
