    First of all, why do they sell dual layer burners with lightscribe, but not dual layer lighscribe media?

    Anyway, so I tried to burn a dual layer DVD through Toast 6.1.1, and the first time, the program just froze at the end, and the second time, it froze and then said there was a problem with the mac OS.

    It's an HP DVD 840 and i'm running a MBP with OS 10.4.7 and a gig of ram.

    Anyone know what might help?

    Thanks!

    i presume it's compatilbe with mac, all i can think off is perhaps toast won't recognise it

    what media are you trying to burn onto ?

    it's a crazy world

    also what speed are you trying to burn at i'd try at a slow speed, see if that helps

    So in other words you're having issues with Toast and not necessarily the burner itself ? Does 6.1.1 even support DL ? Have you tried burning in finder?

    I don't know what the problem is with :confused:

    Can you burn a DVD from a Video_TS folder from the finder?
