    I recently bought dual layer discs to burn a ~6.8gb file to dvd. I hadn't used any before but know my hardware is capable of burning dual layer discs.

    I have Clone DVD2 v2.9.1.2 and am not sure if this software is capable of burning to dual layer discs. Does anyone know if this is possible and if not if there is an upgrade I can do?

    Additionally, I just tried to burn a data cd using Roxio, which came with my system, and it doesn't want to burn to dual layer either even though i select that media type during the burn setup.

    The discs i have are Memorex DVD+R DL which from the discussions in other forums appear to be "cheap" for both price and performance.

    I'm not sure if I have just one problem preventing me from burning the dvd or several.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Yes, CloneDVD 2 is able to burn to dual layer DVD's (!). You don't need an upgrade.

    If you want to copy a CD (as you posted), then use a CD-R for creating a copy. It wouldn't make a sense to copy a CD to a DVD.
    (BTW: Try to use VERBATIM DVD's, but those who say "Made in Singapore".)

    Select "+/-R DL" near the quality bar in Clonedvd.

    By the way,

    Dual = -R dl (useless format)
    Double = +R DL

    As noted previously use Verbatim +R DL (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A +R DL 8x.
