Fix: Time out error while burning disc in Windows 7/ Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft released a hotfix for the problem which occurs when we try to burn files to a DVD-R Dual layer disc (DL) in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2. Sometimes the burning operation fails with a time-out error (also in an application that uses Image Mastering API version 2.0 (IMAPI v2) to burn files).
