so, who’s going to step up and start producing brand new “8.7 GB MAX Capacity Dual Layer DVDs”?? that’s what i’d call them at least…

also someone found these for sale, but discontinued:

i wrote them a note to see if they are available or not, since it says 428 in stock.

lol, I went bat shit crazy after reading that since I just got a pack of verbatim dvd+r dl’s and a new burner, but then I found this:


We recommended that you use the latest version of ImgBurn (v2.5.5.0
at the time of writing, downloadable at Older versions may
handle this process differently and/or give a different set of

Although it is set by default in ImgBurn, please ensure that under
Tools > Settings > Write, you have “Layer Break (For DL Media)” set
to “Calculate Optimal”

Please ensure that the layerbreak is set as 2133520 in the .dvd file
If you already have the XGD2 (or other) layerbreak value set in
ImgBurn, the .dvd of the XGD3 ISO will override that setting and use
the proper layerbreak

As mentioned above, ImgBurn will automatically reposition/limit the
layerbreak to 2086912 when burning to regular DVD+R DL discs

Please see the included imgburn-xgd3-errors.png image for screenshots
of the errors you’ll encounter in ImgBurn and what to click on in
each dialog that pops up

Step by Step:

1. Choose “Write image file to disc”, and after loading the .dvd
file, click “Write”

2. ImgBurn will pop up a notice saying that there is not enough
space on the disc to burn the image, and asks if you would like to
continue anyway. Click “Yes”

3. Another message might pop up saying that optimal layerbreak
position exceeds L0 capacity. Click “Yes”

4. An error will then pop up noting that “Set L0 Data Zone
Capacity Failed”. Click “Continue”

5. The image will begin writing to the disc

6. Nearing the end of the write process, ImgBurn will pop up an
error at around 97% or 98% (this is what we want — it’s
intentional!). Click “Cancel”

7. A notice will then pop up asking if you would like ImgBurn to
try and perform the “‘Close Track/Session/Disc’ functions”. Click
& there’s also a video out

So it seems that the game will work on a 8.5gb disc but with a couple of errors during the burning process, so they’re probably trying to make things easier for people.

of course those are the instructions for using a standard 8.5 gb disc. i wasn’t saying we need 8.7 gb discs, but if we could start to use those instead it would be a way better alternative. i’m sure that c4e expects them to possibly start popping up since he put support for them in LT 2.

Food for thought :lol: well said quick,sure hope everything does go into consideration.

Hate to be a bubble burster; but if you search the part number, that is just a 25 pack of regular 8.5′s that Verbatim had for the Euro markets. Google MCVER-43667 if you want to see for yourself. I’m sure if they can, some company will come out with 8.7′s, if just to get our market share of the sales. I remember when CD-R’s used to be 650mb and we were all amazed when they came out with 700′s! i also don’t think overburning will work, as many of those types of discs required proprietary hardware to be read. But I am not and engineer or software developer, so all I can do is wait along with the rest of you guys.

Waiting is the “word” right now. Thought maybe might find some EBay/amazon but no luck. I figure it will all work out in the end :| Glass 1/2 full kinda guy.

the tutorial says to “Please ensure that the layerbreak is set as 2133520 in the .dvd file”. How do I do that?

2011-10-03 at 04:11AM UTC #1610

open .dvd with notepad change the layerbreak and save ;)

If you have a good release the .dvd is already set correctly
