    Hello. I have a single layer burner, pretty old. My friend just gave me a bunch of free dual-layer dvds and I was wondering If I can still use them to burn a 4.7 or so ISO file, or do they not work like that? I tried to use Imgburn but it didn't seem to work. Was asking some questions I didn't know how to answer when setting up the burn. Please help. Thanks.

    Imgburn Tools > Drive > Capabilities.
    Unless the burner lists the capability it will reject or waste the DL disk.

    Is that the 'Read' box or the 'Write' box that's checked.

    You might want to save them for something that might require some extra storage like a 3 hr movie. Memorex is not the best of brands but free is a good deal.
