Can't burn 8.5 gb disc on DL burner

  1. I do video work on 1 year old AMD quad 9850 (2.5 mhz) with 4 gb ram and nvida 9400 gt (512) video card - It has an LG burner model HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GH22NP20 - it burns 4.7 gb discs beautifully but when I render video lareger than 5.0 gb using Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate, I take the disc image to either nero 9 or DVD FAB to burn 8.5 gb disc - after burning ( window says burning & verifiation completed successfully) I put disc into a DVD play and it reads "No File" - I have used 3-4 different manufactured discs including Tyio Uden - same thing - If i take the disc image to DVD Fab and use reduction to 4.7 gb disc, it gives me a good disc - problem with this is some of my disc images get close to 8gb which means the compression on DVD Fab degrades the image quality - has anyone out there any ideas of what is wrong - is it software errors or hardware errors - I'm tapped out - I tried Pinnacle forum and finally gave up as their tecs couldn't fix problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have you tried burning that image with a different burner / computer. If it doesn't work on a different computer, it may be the file that has issues?

    Tried burning movie on DL disc using DVD fab - works fine - possible problem with Pinnacle Studio creating avi/image files - will try another programme eg. Cyberlink Power Director and see oif problem still there. Thanks for info

    Good news - I re-rendered a very large video file 7.5gb on Ulead 11 programme - it burned an 8.5gb dl disc smooother than a cat likin' butter - The problem must lie in Pinnacle Studio 11 programme - it seems it even captured avi files corruptly - it's now history - replacing with Sony Vegas Pro 9 . - thanks for all your help - sometimes it just needs someone else to look at problem from a different angle.
