You need to use one of the dvd burners listed in the “Lite-On PC DVD Burner” section of the website. I bought the lowest model one, iHAS124B, from newegg.com for less than $20. These are desktop DVD burners though, so unless you buy some sort of external drive bay to mount it in, it isn’t gonna work with your laptop. Doing a quick search, I found an external drive bay for $40 on newegg.com.

Once you have one of those drives, you need to update the drive’s firmware with the “iXtreme Burner MAX” firmware.

The reason you need to do all this is because the newer disk format is 8.7GB, which is 0.2GB bigger than regular DVD-DL disks. Your laptop DVD burner is not capable of burning the entire disk.

I would like to throw out one disclaimer — I have never tried using one of these DVD burners in an external drive bay. I’m only assuming it would work. I’d hate for you to go out and buy $60 worth of hardware and then find out it doesn’t for some reason. The best solution is to burn these disk in a desktop.
