Question burn dual layer dvd


can anybody out there tell me how in the world I can succesfully burn a dual layer dvd. I can burn with k3b but the movie freezes up in the middle. Some research I've done suggests that I need to install a layer break, to my knowledge that is not possible.

Have you confirmed that it's not the player at fault? Does it happen if you play it in a software player as well? Some stand-alone dvd players simply cannot handle certain kinds of recordable media. And dual-layer DVD-R's are still rather new. Try it in several different players if you can.

I've tried it in my HP dvd drive along with 3 seperate stand alone dvd players. I'm pretty sure now that it is not a burning problem but a copying problem. Can anybody confirm this and maybe offer a solution.
