Writing DL disc

\015 Hi,\302\240\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I use a Compaq V6608AU laptop. The issue here is with writing a DVD9.\302\240\015\012\015\012DVD ROM: Slimtype DVD A DS8AIP (supports DVD+R DL mode)\015\012Using imation 8.5 gb DVD+R DL to burn. Softwares: Nero and DVDfab Platinum ver: 4.0.5\302\240\015\012\015\012I am able to write CDs or DVD5s with ease. I have tried to write a DL disc using both the softwares to no avail. After a few seconds, the softwares (DVDfab or Nero) stop responding (when I check in the task manager) and the dvd in the drive is rotates violently!! (sorry i do not know if there is a technical term for this).\302\240\015\012\015\012So, i end the process then manually eject the drive.
