    Question Macbook Cant Read DVD+R DL
    I have the 2006 Core Duo Macbook and I just made a backup of my leopard install disks, BUT my laptop cant burn DL DVD's so I used my friends 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo Macbook running leopard to do it, I went into Disk utility on his and clicked new image when the OSX DVD was in it and went through all that and it made a dmg file to his desktop, then I clicked Burn at the top with the dmg selected in the column, it went through and after it was burnt it ejected and I deleted the dmg files that I made from the dvd and left it at that. When I got home to test it, I put it in and it span up made a few noises and spat the disk out. I cant get it to read it, meanwhile my originals are locked in my safe .

    The disc that I burnt it onto was a imation 8.5GB DVD+R DL can the original macbooks not read Dual Layer +R discs or something?

    We both had OSX 10.5.4 Installed and both fully updated

    Thanks, but just so you know, i've had leopard since day one when I bought it and its been running ever since then. Thus me wanting to make a backup just in case something happens to my originals.

    read DVD DL in MacBook
    I had the same problem with my Macbook which I purchased in mid 2006. It wasn't able to read my DVD DL. After sitting hours on net I tried one of the suggestions.

    I run "Verified Disk Permission" from the Disk Utility and things got right. Now I am able to read DVD DL.
