So I've done some reading ofver the forums for the last week and this place has been a HUGE help. Thank you to everyone who contributes! I've refrained from making any posts in favor of doing lots of searches and reading. But now I've come to a specific question that I would like to ask. So last week for my birthday my wife bought me this drive: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ategoryId=pcmcat107700050010&id=1166236338234 I didn't realise there was such a thing as DL disks, nor did I realise that this drive burns them. So for the last week, I've been converting my .AVI files to Video-TS with AVI2DVD; and burning them to +R disks with the Nero Essentials that came with the drive. The disks play great on my xbox (I know...I'm behind the times...) and all is well. Now, I just noticed about 20 minutes ago when I glanced at the box that this drive does DL DVDs. I have quite a few .AVI files that are over the 110 miniute mark and have to be split into two DVD+R disks. This is annyoning. So, I'd like to get some DL disks to try and burn these longer movies. The booklet that came with the drive reccomends Verbatim DL disks, and BestBuy has several small packs that are cheap enough for me. I know AVI2DVD has an option to choose DVD9 instead of DVD5 when encoding, and my Nearo Essentials program has an option for DVD9 when burning as well. So, before I go out and spend $20 on a package of DL disks, does it sound like I have everything needed to convert & burn a 120+ min avi movie onto a DL DVD? I'm totally new to video processing, so sorry for the newb question. Thanks everyone.
