How to Burn a DVD DL on a Super Multi Drive


Multi-format combo drives, also known as super multi drives, are computer optical drives that are capable of recording data in multiple formats across many types of optical mediums. One of the less common mediums used today is that of a DVD-DL. DVD-DL is a special type of DVD disc which has two recording layers built in and allows for nearly double the data capacity of single layer discs. Recording onto these disc types with a multi-drive is an easy process which any computer user can accomplish.

  • Insert a blank DVD-DL into your super multi drive.

  • Locate the files you wish you burn. You may do this using a data burning software such as Ahead Nero Burning ROM or simply by dragging and dropping the files onto the drive's folder icon.

  • Check the total size of the files to be burned. If the total size is less than 4.7 GB it is recommended you use a normal single layer disc as DVD-DL discs are significantly more expensive.

  • Begin the burn process with your software or by clicking the "Burn files to DVD" button located at the top of the drive's content listing window.

  • Wait until the burn process is complete. This may take several minutes to several hours depending on the speed of your multi drive and DVD media. Both burning options will provide you with a progress screen which will present you with an estimated time until completion.

  • Remove the DVD-DL disc. The DVD will automatically be ejected upon successful completion of the burn process.
