Idiot needs help
OK, I give up. Im trying to take 2 fairly large AVI files totalling about 7.5 G, combine them into 1 file, and then burn it onto a DL DVD. Im tired, exhausted, and tired of making $10 coasters.

Are you attempting to burn AVIs directly to DVD?
That doesn't work (for most players.)

In simple terms and steps, what programs and proceedures are you using?
Have you ever made working single layer DVDs that operated in your DVD player?
From zero to success is a very long way, in the world of DVD making.
If this DL DVD is your first attempt, I'd say you are in way over your head.
Get your feet wet with some single layer discs, first.
VideoReDo is an absolutely wonderful program, but it does just one of several steps in the work flow of making DVDs.
PS: I got tired of $1 and $2 single-layer coasters a couple of years ago.
Now, I rarely make 20-cent to 40-cent coasters, in part to newer, better, beefier software like VRD.

Ive been burning single layer DVD's for ages Im using Nero Express (among others) and it screams and yells. My best bet is that for some reason its not recognizing the DL blank in the drive. Crazy thing is, ive done this before. Must have been sheer luck the first time.

Is it possible you need an update from Nero for your DL drive?

You may need to update the firmware for your burner.

Thought of that. Im current.

What brand of DL discs are you using? The consensus is that anything other than Verbatim is a waste of money.

I have a fairly new DL drive (LG GSA-4163B) that came with Nero Express (not Nero Burning ROM) and it will not burn anything correctly even with the latest Nero upgrades. The drive works perfectly with Ulead Movie Factory, DeepBurner (freeware), and DVDDecrypter. Nero has worked exactly twice. (using Verbatim +R and Maxell -R & +RW)
My personal belief is that Nero Express does not yet correctly support DL 16X drives even though it came with my drive. Since it won't support single layer disks, I haven't even tried DL disks. You probably need different burning software.
