Hi anyone,

 

Does EMC7 copy Dual Layer DVDs? I thought EMC7 was supposed to copy Dual Layer DVDs but the Disc Copyier always wansts to fit it to a single layed disc. All I want is an exact copy; no transcoding or re-rendering.

 

Regards

Hans L

 

It is supposed to. Have you checked for new firmware for your DL drive? Which one do you have? Is your burner being recognized as DL in Roxio?

 

Have you tried using Windows to copy the disc?

Steve,

 

I've not used DL DVDs with my laptop before but the drive is an NEC ND-6500A and has DVD+DL capability. Being a DELL laptop, firmware is only supposed to be downloaded from the DELL site but they stopped udpating the firmware for DELL about 12 months after I purchased the laptop 3-1/2 years ago (another story). The only other program I have that can burn to discs is DVD Shrink but that seems to require Nero to complete the burning process.

NEC ND-6500A, it says it will write a + R DL at 2.4X....I would buy Verbatim +R DL Disc's..

 

# 9 in my signature ImgBurn Current version: 2.4.4.0..Small freeware application..

 

Use the NEC ND-6500A with the disc you want to copy, in ImgBurn select, create image from disc (to your hard drive).

 

Then remove the disc and put in a +R DL and select write image file to disc, set the burn speed to 2.4X..

 

The ImgBurn site has how to help files...

EMC 7.1.1.189ENU supports DL burning in DVDBuilder, I'm not sure about Disc Copier?

 

What version do you have? Is it a bought retail version, or came free with the pc?

It's a retail version which I later updated on-line. The Disc Copier is now 7.1.1.189ENU. When loading the source disc, there is no option to select whether I want to burn to a single or dual layer disc which is what I would have expected especially since I have only one drive and EMC7 would need to know what what type of disc I intend to burn to once the source disc has been copied to memory.

Then what have you actually tried to do?

 

I wouldn't try a on the fly copy to memory for a DL disc!

 

Does Disc Copier give you the option of a Image file?

 

Then re-burn the Image file to disc?

 

I would use the free program above for your DL copy...

Thanks for the good advice. The Disk Image option in Disc Copier - Destination allows you to select DVD+DL and then it creates an ISO file without any compression. The ImgBurn software seems to work well also in that it did burn a successful DVD+DL. There may be some incompatibility with ImgBurn and the DELL laptop NEC drive (NEC is not a listed drive in ImgBurn) and I could not proceed with the normal processes which caused the following log message "User has ignored layer break options and instead reverted to VOBU/ECC search!" What ever that means, it worked.

 

Thanks again. EMC7.1 is still going well. I also bought EMC8 but it only caused conflict with my laptop (even if EMC7 was uninstalled) so I wasted my money. Roxio does not offer a trial EMC2009 so I'm sticking with my EMC7

If you buy it directly from Roxio (on-line) you have a 30 day $$ back warranty. If your laptop is that old, it may not meet the stringent minimum requirements.
