My dvd unit is an HP dvd640. I recently by mistake bought double layer discs which I realize have twice the capacity of a standard disc, and I now wonder if they

 

1) will be recordable in this drive using ImgBurn (I typically burn only 600-800 MB, 'shrunk' movies) and, if so,  

2) will they play OK in a standard DVD-player?

 

Thank you.

PS: As the discs will (probably) be useless to me anyway I just went ahead and did the deed. First IB warned that the movie would easily fit on a normal disc which I knew already, then this message came:

and this I don't understand at all. What does that mean?

They should play fine.

I expect you can answer yes or no to that second prompt and they'll both be fine. I can't say I have a definitive answer as to which one actually better - it's not something I've tested.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Was that after clicking 'Yes' ?

It isn't 'final' in your situation, no :)

It's basically the same as clicking 'No' on the previous one.

Well, not final, but IB tried to burn the thing despite all these reservations, started trying, an error message popped up after a short while - the text of which I forget now - then made try number two (of 20; there was a counter), failed and so forth. I gave the thing (and that disc) up for lost on the third try.

No sense whipping a dead horse.

So I guess I should simply buy the right kind of discs next time.. ;)
