If you saw the original text of this post, disregard it. I had the wrong model number as I do have that drive you just mentioned as an external.
I can't remember if I ever tested writing an image to BD-RE DL in my drive. I know I've written the disc to full contents as a giant floppy in File Explorer without an issue.
Yeah, it was weird. The USB ASUS model, which I had first, passed every test I threw at it. I just don't remember if I ever tested writing an image to BD-RE DL. So, I had high hopes for an internal ASUS I tried later. However, it WAS junk. Destroyed rewritable media, BD-RE DL and DVD+RW, thrown at it.
How long have you had this drive? If you've been using it for a considerable amount of time, say 7 months to a year, it may just need replacing. Problems at the layer change are down to generally 2 issues: 1.) your drive needs replacing 2.) your drive doesn't like that kind of DL media
Now, it could be down to the drive itself simply not being a good DL writer. I know LG's aren't. They fail more often than not on Verbatim BD-RE DL at the layer change. And they write giant floppy formatted BD-RE DL at half the speed of the Pioneer.
Is this your first attempt at trying to write to Verbatim BD-RE DL in that drive?
If I can remember, I'll try a good test to my model. I have an image that's only just a little bit over the size of a BD-RE SL, so it will test the layer change without taking as much time.

Thanks for getting back to me. It seems clear to me now that my issue is the burn failing at the layer change.
First let me mention that I haven't tried this with RE discs yet but I will be this weekend. If those get destroyed then I'll probably lose hope in DL burning with this drive.
I've had this ASUS drive for about 8 months, but i've only started really using it in the last couple weeks. It burned a SL DVD perfectly but that's all ive tried. I'll try BD SL this weekend but I'm expecting that to be fine. Therefore, it sounds to me like this drive just doesnt like the Verbatim discs, or vice versa. I might try a different BD-DL media, but odds are I will get a Pioneer burner instead of testing my way through different media.
Should I try burning the ISO to disc just through Windows, or PowerISO? I havent tried those, because I figured ImgBurn would do it better.

I have started my own Verbatim BD-RE DL test. That won't complete for about an hour. I'll get back the results then.
I overlooked you were using a BD-R DL. I haven't ever tried burning a BD-R DL on any drive. Only BD-RE DL.
You could try using Windows to burn the ISO. However, if it fails, you probably won't get much of an error report. Never used PowerISO so I can't say.
I don't know how well the ASUS handles Verbatim BD-R DL. Or the Pioneer or LG. Be aware that my results with Pioneer's XL burner have been going steadily downhill over the last few I've had. I've had 4 and they steadily declined in quality. The last one I had was borked right out of the box, failing to write Verbatim BD-R that the 2nd oldest version of that same model would, so it was the drive I had received and eventually sent back. However, the LG has its own problems. If you're looking to burn DL, I can tell you it's a terrible drive for writing BD-RE DL to. It fails at the layer change more often than it succeeds and Verbatim BD-RE DL formatted as a giant floppy in File Explorer write at half the speed of the Pioneer. So, I'd try the Pioneer before the LG. However, also be aware that you may need to regress to the 2nd to newest firmware for it. The latest firmware for Pioneer drives bork Ritek 8x DVD+RW so they will always fail Verifies until they are fully formatted in a different drive or a Pioneer drive with the 2nd newest firmware.

I didn't encounter an issue with Verbatim BD-RE DL at the layer change. However, despite the Disc ID's being the same, they obviously aren't the same media as one is WORM BD-R DL and one is rewritable BD-RE DL. So, it may just be that the ASUS doesn't like Verbatim BD-R DL. Or I've seen indications in other posts that Verbatim BD-R DL may not necessarily be of good quality anymore. In the days of DVD+R DL, Verbatim was the only quality choice IF you got DataLife Plus and not Life Series. TDK also seemed to make a good DVD+R DL, but that was the extent of my experience.
So, it may be that the ASUS drive in question likes Verbatim BD-RE DL and doesn't like Verbatim BD-R DL. Or it could be as simple as Verbatim BD-R DL can't be trusted.

Thank you for your thorough assistance! I will play around with what you've said, and if I discover anything notable I'll write back here.
Have a great day!
