    I got a dual layer burner and I'm having a devil of a time burning disks to it. I've tried imation and philips. Both are a no-go. Both disks are single layer. Do I need dual layer disks or is my software, Nero 6 at fault. Or is there a trick to it I don't know about?

    The ones I have seen burn both however there may be one somewhere that does not. In short, check the specs.

    Nero 6 is pretty old; it may not support dual layer type disks. Have you tried either cdburnerxp or imgburn? Both are excellent freeware apps. Cdburnerxp is the easier to use; I would say imgburn is for more experienced users.

    Tried to put in a link for cdburnerxp however their site seems to be down.
