    Hi Everyone,
    I have been using DVDSHRINK for a couple of years and would like to get a dual layer dvd burner. I would like to know if DVDSHRINK will burn to dual layer dvd's, if not do you know of a good program that does.

    Thank you.

    Hi mickeyd65
    Shrink doesn't have it own burn engine - uses Nero's.
    So yes you can do dual layer - just change the target size.
    In Shrink go to edit>preferences and change it to dvd-9.

    Another good one that's free is ImgBurn. if you want to autoburn w/ Shrink & ImgBurn download & install this tweak for Shrink.
    Then just pick that option under select back target in Shrink.

    First you need to see if your burner will burn dl discs. Some older ones do not.
    Buy dvd+r dl discs.

    Specifically, you should use Verbatim DVD+R DLs.

    I noticed the title of the thread refers to DVD-R DLs, suggesting the dash format. You don't want to mess with DVD-R DL discs, also called "Dual Layer". DVD-R DLs, unlike regular, single-layer, 4.7 Gb DVD-Rs, DL DVD-Rs are not well-supported, and have some technical limitations. DVD+R DLs are much better and more compatible.
