Movie playback problem DVD-5 vs DVD-R DL

I've just downloaded the trial version of both AnyDVD and CloneDVD2. After I cloned a movie with the DVD-5 setting, the DVD won't read in any of my DVD players. Also, when I try to run it on my computer, the system doesn't even recognize that a disc is in the drive.
I then attempted to clone using the DVD-/+R DL setting (after I had to purchase these discs) and now it works perfectly fine.
Any suggestions?

1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)
2. Use good quality media only

3. Try lowering your burn speed (not below 4x; if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x instead of 16x)
4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom"

5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)
6. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.

Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step 6)
and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom)
