    I've been trying to burn a 7.8 GB dvd for a few days, but to no avail.

    My system:
    iMac G5 iSight 17"
    2.5 GB Ram

    Super Drive:
    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-K05:
    Firmware Revision: Q523
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
    Cache: 2000 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL
    Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes
    Burn Underrun Protection DVD: Yes
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
    Media: No

    My usual burning software (DVD2One X2) does not seem to support +R DL, but only -R DL, which the burner does not support. So I just used it to create a disk image (~7.8 GB). I tried burning that one on a +R DL with both Disk Utility and Toast 6 Titanium, but neither one of them would start writing the disk - "media errors" right away. I tried with two different disks, and the Mac recognizes them both as blank disks, so I don't think that's the problem.

    Is there a good program out there, that can handle double layer burning in a reliable manner and supports +R DL? I'm tired of spending money on burning software, so freeware would be preferred. But I'm open for anything, as long as it offers a free trial or something, so I can try it out.

    Try Burn It won't convert anything, but if you have a Video_TS folder it will work nicely.

    Have you tired iDVD? Open Project Info (View Menu) and change it to a Double Layer DVD.
