Re: growisofs +R Double Layer -dvd-compat burning problem

:-[ SEND DVD+R DOUBLE LAYER RECORDING INFORMATION failed with

INQUIRY: [HL-DT-ST][DVDRAM GSA-4167B][DL12]
DVD+R DOUBLE LAYER BOUNDARY INFORMATION:
L0 Data Zone Capacity: 1860864*2KB, can still be set
Note that growisofs attempts to split at default layer boundary. Meaning
that the image is exactly as large as full media capacity, right? Can
you try smaller image so that growisofs would try split at lower value?
If it works, then it's just specific firmware glitch [which can be
worked around in next version].
As I stated above, if I don't use the -dvd-compat option, the dvd burns
without any errors and will play on my Shinco dvd player but not my Yamaha
It should be noted that if image is exactly as large as media capacity,
then the recording performed without -dvd-compat is identical to one
performed with [at least according to specification]. Varying results
are more likely to be caused by limited capability of second player to
play DVD+R DL in general, rather than how this particular recording was
Note that I have no problems using the -dvd-compat option with
4.7GB dvds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
