DVDFab 11

  1. What does the error "Media inserted in Drive X is single layer. Please insert a double layer media to start the write process" mean?

DVD5 is single layered and DVD9 is double layered, the storage capacities of the two are very different: DVD-5 (Single layer) disk is often called 4.7 GB Media while DVD9 (Double layer) 8.5 GB Media.

When you receive this message, what you actually want is to burn to DVD5 disc, you can try:

1. Change the Output to DVD5 in Advanced Settings window by clicking on the wrench button to bring up the box.

2. Be sure that you set "Writable media (DVD-5) size" a good one for most of the blank media, and we would recommend to set 4300MB, the default one for DVD5 burning for most of the cases, you can check in Common Settings > Drives > DVD Write panel.

3. If you have done the above two, but still get the same message, please submit the problem along with your DVDFab log files to the support team for help.
