My PC has x64 Windows 7 Ultimate running with an internal DVD drive installed. I was able to format and burn single-layer DVDs, but not 8.5 GB double layer DVDs manufactured by Imation. I have followed the same procedure as the one given on microsoft.com for burning CDs and DVDs with no luck. When I insert a DVD, the OS does not return the pop-up menu for formatting. Right-clicking on the drive in My Computer to format does not work either. Please provide me with a clue as to how you can format double-layer DVDs on Windows 7 Ultimate.
I have two dual layer DVD burners, and I have yet to be able to burn dual layer. My brother called me and said he is having the same problem. I assume you have a dual layer burner also, but just can't do dual layer. I would like to know the secret. I have purchased dual layer DVDs, and it has been a waste of money to me and also my brother.
