Double Layer DVD's and Easy Media Creator 7.5

I have an NEC ND-3450A Double Layer Drive and am attempting to burn double layer data DVD+R's with Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5 Classic. Every time I attempt to do so, the program goes through a validating project cycle and then I am presented with a drop down dialog box requesting I select a write speed. Unfortunately, there are no write speeds to select from the empty drop down list and my only option is to hit cancel. Single layer DVD's and CD's work perfectly fine. Any thoughts?

Have you got the latest and most updated version of Roxio ? Maybe try the updates , if there are any.

Other then that I would have to suggest that you try Nero burning rom out as that is my fav program with regards to burning :)

Yes, have latest version of the software with all available patches. Unfortunately, I have been in the field the past few weeks, so I have been unable to test with other software packages such as Nero. I'll be back in the office next week and will try to do so and post the results.

Just an update. Turns out that it was that the DVD writer itself needed a firmware update. Once applied, it worked like a charm!
