How do you make Windows DVD Maker burn dual-layer DVDs in Windows 7?
Posted on 2011-02-28
I have a number of video files (.WMV's) larger than 4.7 gigabytes that I'd like to burn to a DVD using Windows DVD Maker. Unfortunately, every time I try to burn with DVD Maker, it compresse the video and only burns 4.7 GB to the disc.
I've tried 3 different model computers, 6 models of DVD drive, three types of media, all to no avail. It doesn't appear regardless of what I do that DVD Maker will recognize and properly use the room available on a dual layer DVD.
What am I missing? When I put a dual layer disc in, the time in the interface increases from ~140 minutes to ~270+ minutes so it's obvious it sees the extra room but it refuses to use it.
Any input is appreciated. I want to provide my users the abiliy to simply use DVD Maker rather than having to purchase and deploy a complicated product just for the purposes of making a simple DVD.
