Encore CS5.1, Issue burning onto 8.5GB DL DVD using WIndows 7, 64bit

Feb 29, 2012 2:09 PM

Is anyone familiar with the inability of Encore CS5.1 to burn 8.5GB dual layer disc using Windows 7, 64bit.  After many failed attempts, it turns out that you need to set Encore as Windows XP compatability in order to get the disc to burn.  Is this just a glitch with Windows 7 + Adobe Encore CS5.1?


The problem with changes the compatability on Encore is that you lose the dynamic link with Premiere Pro CS5.5.


Any other suggestions on being able to burn without changing the compatability of Encore?


btw, 4.7GB DVDs work fine.

    To burn dual layer you MUST right click the Encore icon and select Run as Administrator from the popup window... this is NOT the same as using an Administrator account


    I think you can select to "always" Run as Administrator from that popup window

    John is right. The dual layer DVD burning requires to Run the Encore as Admin even when you are logged in as admin.
