yes it is
netcomdirect.com/sod…tml

but drives can be very fussy with media and speed used to burn. try a different media and start off slow and work your way up the speeds

this time i tried with img burn and it gave me this error:
Failed to set L0 Data Zone Capacity!
Reason: Write Protected

does this mean the dvd i have are not good....

it sould be a software or indeed hardware issue but i'd try different media first. some drives are just plain fussy

Its something to do with dual layer as when I tried to burn a dual layer image on imgburn it said it had an incorrect l0 table but let me burn anyway and was fine.

And it may have used the disc even though it was a failed burn so you need another.
