    I've got a project I need to burn but it won't give me the option of burning a dual layer disc. I've gone to the "project info" menu and I get no pop up for choosing my media. I've also gone to system profiler to find out about my drive and it says this:

    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D:

    Firmware Revision: 1.23
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Vendor Supported)
    Profile Path: /Library/DiscRecording/DeviceProfiles/PatchBurn-pioneerdvdrwdvr111d.drprofile
    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:
    Media Type: DVD+R DL
    Blank: Yes
    Erasable: No
    Overwritable: Yes
    Appendable: Yes


    I've also got another drive hooked up via usb. In the profiler it says this:

    PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D:

    Firmware Revision: 9.15
    Interconnect: USB
    Burn Support: Yes (Unsupported)
    Profile Path: None
    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:
    Media Type: DVD+R DL
    Blank: Yes
    Erasable: No
    Overwritable: Yes
    Appendable: Yes

    My project currently says it is 5.2 GB of 4.0 GB in size. I've got dual layer media. Any ideas here? I'm using iDVD 5.0.1.

    Thanks!

    Are you using +R DL discs? You drive seems not to support -R DL discs.

    Also you can try using this driver:

    http://www.patchburn.de/

    Which uses altrnate drivers to allow 3rd party units ( yours seems to be supported, obviously, but it's something to try )

    Good luck!

    I'm using +R DL discs, and I've already tried patchburn.
