DVD Burner / Nero OEM suite Issue

    I've got a Lite-On DVD burner installed in my system. It's the 1633S model,
    I think. I'm using Nero OEM suite to burn DVD's. The drive supports dvd+r dl
    disks. When I go to create a dvd video, Nero Express only will recognize it
    as a standard disk, 4.37 GB instead of the 8.35 GB or what ever it's
    supposed to be. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Right off hand I would say you need the 'retail' version.

    What version of Nero is it - as in 6.x.x.x?
    Try updating it.

    Any version shipped with the drive should support all the features of the
    drive. It usually does, anyway...

    Two. One - the drive IS a dual layer drive, right?

    Second - Update to the latest version of Nero in that ballpark
    (i.e., if you're running 6.0.x.y to 6.3.x.y, update to the latest 6.3.x.y
    from their web site).

    Funny - NeroExpress 6.3.1.25 does dual layer on three of my machines
    .... albeit I've only tried one in each B)

    No it doesn't hance the updates which not only update recognised drives
    but also media. Also one of the 6.x.x.x updates added dual layer
    support AFAIR.

    Although I've never installed Nero Express from OEM CD's, since I have a
    perfectly good working copy of Nero 6.X (complete), I have installed bundled
    Roxio software and I've never had a drive that offered a feature that the
    bundled software didn't support. If the drive usually does 8X or 16X when it
    came out, the bundled Media Creator always supported it. Same way with Dual
    Layer. Maybe LiteOn is cheap about it? I have a LiteOn 1673 dual layer DVD,
    but it's on a Linux system, so I never tried the bundled software.

    The Nero 6.6.0.6 Express that came with my BenQ 1625 supports dual
    layer. All builds of Nero since 6.1.-something have had dual-layer
    support. There should be a dialogue box at the bottom right of the
    main window for selecting single or dual-layer projects. It might
    have defaulted to single-layer.

    As I said elsewhere in this thread, the crippled Nero Express that
    comes with a dual-layer burner WILL do dual-layer, make sure it's
    SELECTED as dual-layer in the options, and when you go to "recorder"
    in the menu make sure yur burner is selected instead of generic.
