    I've just bought a few Dual Layer discs, can I just rip a large disc (7.30GB) using just DVD decrypter/Smartripper
    and then burning with Nero 6.3.1.20 or, (as I read somewhere else on the forum) you have to rip to ISO and then burn from the image file because, if it is done the normal way, Nero adds an extra layer break is this true?

    Also, will I have to update the firmware on my NEC ND-2510A burner (F/W version 2.15) to use the discs?

    Discs are Traxdata 8.5GB Dual Layer.

    System specs:

    Windows XP Professional with service pack 2
    1GB DDR333 PC2700 RAM
    AMD Athlon XP 3000
    Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 mainboard
    2xMaxtor 250GB SATA HDD (non RAID setup) NTFS
    Pioneer 12x DVD-ROM
    NEC ND-2510A DVD Dual Layer writer

    Software I use, Nero 6.3.1.20, CloneDVD, SmartRipper, DVD2one, DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter.

    I have over 400 successful burns using the normal method, I don't wanna be making expensive coasters with discs @ £6 a pop!

    So, if anyone knows the right way to burn 1:1 backups using D/L discs & has had no problems, let me know so I can start burning!

    Cheers, Da_Burner

    Well, I thought I'd risk it, Nero spat the disc back out.

    *Edit* got rid of the log file

    Problem solved!

    I took the leap and installed the 2.16 firmware from NEC and now, have my first succesful Dual Layer backup.

    Now, just need faster write speeds for the Dual Layer media!

    I mean faster write options, not media like, 6X or even 8X but, I'm sure that'll come.
