I have Nero 6 with StartSmart which is rather old, about 9 months. I have tried burning dual layer 8x discs on my new philips SPD24138D MODEL dvd writer which will burn dual layer at 8x. However my old Nero 6 software seems to be limited to burning at 4x for dual layer. My Philips dvd writer came with software. But it is only trialware. So I did not install it.
Otherwise I don't know of any option to get the full speed from my DVD writer other than getting the Nero 7 which is about $100.00

This site below is supposed to have free DVD authoring software for making movies. I wonder if it will burn at the high 8x speed for dual layer.

Try getting Nero 7? It's probably way better than 6..
You have to pay i think but it's worth the money.

Watch the requirements on those rebates. The $50 one looks pretty straight-forward, but to get the $20 one, you need proof of ownership of a competitor's product or a previous version of Nero. Such proof includes the title page from the manual of a previous retail version of a qualified purchase. If you downloaded the version you have, it doesn't qualify. OEM or pre-installed versions also can't be used as qualifying products.

A total price of $20 is pretty good, but I thought I should point out that very few people will get this product for free.

I see, thank you sir. So it is as you say.

But $20 is a pretty good price.

Thank you.

Thanks for pointing that out, I forgot to mention that the $20 was a competitive upgrade. :)
