You would have to check your documentation for full burning capabilities, or search google for the hardware. Most burners do infact burn both + & - R but it's best to check.

Also, it would depend on the software used as to whether or not you can burn anything over 5GB. Windows shouldn't have any problem as it would have the native drivers for your hardware anyway.

Thanks shark :)

I know my burner can burn to dual layer discs I wasn't sure if the windows 7 iso burner would allow me to burn to a dvd+R DL or not. I have some 3rd party software installed on vista atm that can burn to DVD+R DL's but I'm going to be installing W7 in dual boot and was wondering if I could burn iso files in 7 to dual layer discs using the built in iso burner. So you think it would be alright with this then?

It appears the way you access the burning app in the menu system has changed a bit since this tut was created:

Thank you for the heads up Nick. :)

You should see the Burn disk image option at the top of the context menu for .iso and .img files though.

When I try to burn on a DVD+RW I got this error:
"The disc image didn't burn successfully because an error occurred. Overwriting non-blank media is not allowed without the ForceOverwrite property set to VARIANT_TRUE (Error code 0xC0AA0405)"

How to fix this?

Did you try a different isoburner and see if you get the same error?

Did you erase the disc first? I find the best Image Burner by far is IMGBurn.
