I made several projects in Encore CS6 that require a dual layer DVD-R disc . The project had no errors and the disc burnt with no problem.
However, after the first disc, Encore will not burn any additional discs and says the layer break is incorrect even though it didn't give me the option to set my own layer break.
I tried a disc copy with Nero and an occasional disc burnt but I received the same layer break error. The same problem happened with IMGBURN. It would burn a disc (although each time the incorrect layer break message appeared first and then abou 2 of 5 would burn.
Does anyone know the cause of this Encore error or a way to correct or bypass it?
It took 120 dual layer discs to burn 50 properly burnt ones.

A mod may move this to the Encore forum.
Be sure you "run as administrator" for dual layer projects.
Encore may set the layer break correctly if it finds a good place, but there are numerous complaints about it being unreliable.
Build to a folder (no layer break is set), then use ImgBurn to build and ask to be prompted for layer break. ImgBurn is also unreliable under some circumstances.
The most frequent problems appear to be when there is no good location for a break. Do a search for "layer break imgburn" and you will see a variety of strategies.
