I recently saw a 5DVD-Spindle for 8.

To the same amount of "sectors per layer", like it is on the original DVD.
That may be, but what the heck should it then be set to ?
There are quite a few sectors to choose from, so just picking one at random would be insane.
...or do it sets the "Sectors per Layer" correctly&automatically in your case.
Here it burns 50% of the sectors to each layer.
Maybe this Laser-Unit just likes other DL-Media more.
In any case, the discs I burned are proven valid by the fact that they boot perfectly, without any abnormal retries or other delays, when using my v7 console. It is only on the v15 console that I have the access problems. And even there the failure was not total for one of the backups (as it would be with an invalid format), but only consisted of horrible retry delays causing a normal 5 second boot response to take 5 minutes or more.
To me this means that it must be the laser itself which is having problems reading the disc, regardless of the contents (which were proven valid on the v7 anyway).
Which one of the Slim-Lasers do you have?
I give it a try, if I find -R DL somewhere for decent price.
Well, rather you than me...
