    Before i go out and buy a pack of dual layer DVDs and burn a whole in both pockets and my wallet I wanted to make sure I can burn Dual Layer with my recorder.
    See the screenshot below, the program is Nero InfoTool and calls the drive DVD+R/RW DL Recorder. Does the DL mean Dual Layer?
    Should be simple for one of you guys.

    Note that it only burns DVD+R DL disks, so don't buy the DVD-R DL media. :)

    I will bear that in mind. This is probly a bit of a n00b question but what is the difference between DVD-R & DVD+R? I did ask the guy at the shop where I bought them and he said just buy DVD-R disk, he didn't give me a reason why? And will my xbox 360 read the DVD+R DL disks?;) (y)

    Main difference is compatibility. DVD+R are supposedly a little better quality, but from what I found, they are less compatible with external readers than the -R's. Here's a great site to get more information from.
