Dual-Layer Break-Point Error

Question

I had previously been able to burn dual-layer DVDs that work in my car DVD player (kids movies).

But now I'm getting a DVDs that just stop at the dual-layer break point.

I'm hoping someone can give me advice.

 

My old strategy was:

a PowerPC G5 iMac,

but stock DVD burner wouldn't burn DVD-R DL, so I replaced it with

internal Pioneer DVR-K06.

I had VIDEO_TS folders (not encrypted).

With Toast Titanium 7, I was able to use Ritek dual-layer DVD-R,

to burn probably 25 successful DVDs.

 

My G5 iMac died, so I got a new Intel i3 iMac

I bought Toast Titanium 10 (updated to version 10.0.8)

and I bought some JVC (Taiyo Yuden) DVD-R DL.

This new iMac has a burner reported as "HL-DT-STDVDRW GA32N" revision "KC09"

My first burn attempt with the internal DVD burner didn't get 5 minutes before

resulting in an error (something about "sense error")

 

I then tried a burn with an external USB LiteOn model eSAU208

and Toast seemed to work: burning, then verifying,

but when I played in my car DVD player, it froze at the dual-layer break point.

 

( I thought the break-point was determined at authoring time, and Toast

doesn't have to choose anything, just respect the break-point )

 

So, since I have a different computer, different burners, different Toast (10 vs 7),

and different media - any suggestions on what direction to try next?

 

Thanks.

Are you sure those are DVD-R DL and not DVD+R DL discs? I recommend using Verbatim DVD+R DL media because it seems to be the most reliable.

 

Really ? for DL, you recommend DVD+R?

 

I didn't know +R worked - I personally have tried several times and never got

movies to work with DVD+R DL, but had gotten DVD-R DL to work.

For a long time there was only DVD+R DL until Pioneer came out with DVD-R DL. The latter never took off. My understanding is that drive manufacturers tune their firmware to support Verbatim DVD+R DL media so that is the most reliable. You can check user reports on your media by inserting a disc and choosing Disc Info from the Toast Recorder menu. In the window that opens there is a link to a Web site where those reports get published.

 

I don't know if using different media will make any difference in your situation. Have you tried choosing Save as Disc Image and then burn that file using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window?
