Error Writing To Disc When Using Double Capacity Disc

Question

Every time I try to use a 240 min DVD+R dvd I get this error at the end. This happened when

i was converting a VCR and also when I used the import option(It gets to 97% complete and is closing the disc)

I was just trying to put it on one disk instead of having to use two?

Is this a problem is there a way around or should I just keep using multiple disks?

How long in time is the video you are trying to burn to the DL DVD? this type of DVD does not really hold 240 minutes but quite a bit less. A DL DVD at the best quality setting can hold less then 120 minutes so trying to squeeze longer video on the disc willgive you bad quality.

 

Are you first capturing to your hard drive and then burning to DVDs? This is actually the best method since it separates the capture and encode/burn processes.

The video is not 240 minutes I have tried several even 150 minutes gives me an error. I've done it both ways capturing from VCR to DVD drive and importing from hard drive. At least when I ran out of space using the 120 minute dvd it finished and closes and so was able to make a second DVD. I was just trying to avoid this. It seems 240 dvds are just a waste of money I have about 15 I ruined as it won't let me reformat or anything.

Roxio encodes at a constant bit rate of 9 mega bytes second that is the limitation of 1 hour for a single layer DVD - + R or about 2 hours on a DVD - + R double/dual layer disc.

 

DVD - + R media is write once media. DVD - + RW can be erased and write to it again. There are no RW double/dual layer disc's.

Could you tell us exactly what program you are using? You are posting in the "Copy and Convert and Easy DVD Copy" forum. What program are you using to capture the video from your VCR?

 

What does this mean "when I ran out of space using the 120 minute dvd it finished and closes and so was able to make a second DVD"?
