All the burners I've tried work OK with single layer discs. For double layer, Plextor 750a works fine; external Mad Dog works fine (if I set the boot type to DVD-ROM in Nero). No go for any Pioneer burners (108,109,110) or Toshiba burner (but it doesn't burn any double layer disc well).
Nero will let you set book type if the burner allows it. If not, the option won't appear. I've read that Pioneer burners set book type of double layer discs to DVD-ROM in firmware, but no double layer disc I've burned works in my A1. No option to set book type appears in Nero, nor does it appear for the Plextor burner, but it does set the book type to DVD-ROM. Discs I've burned with the Pioneer burners report a book type of DVD-ROM, but they still aren't recognized by the Toshiba.
