Can I use Verbatim 8.5 DVD+R DL in a Pioneer BD-RW burner?

Can I use Verbatim 8.5 DVD+R DL in a Pioneer BD-RW burner? I make DVD's but for the first time I went over my capacity of 4.7 in my DVD's I always use. I have 6.6 GB.  I want to use a 8.5 GB DVD because I don't want to start over. Do I have to do anything different to burn these dual layer things?

Thanks,
Art

artismobile,

The only thing you need to check is if the Pioneer BD-RW is a dual layer burner. If the drive does indeed burn dual layer then you should be fine using the Verbatim disk. On the front of the Pioneer drive does is show anywhere the DL mark for dual layer? If you post the model we can verify the specs.

I don't see DL listed on it but I think it is DL. My DVD authorizing software gives me the option to do a 8.5 GB DVD a quick spec list says it's DL. Hope so!

Yes, according to your burner specification it can burn DVD-R/+R DL disks.
