    hi there can you help me, can you tell me is this item discription below a + and - rewriter,
    DW-Q30A Dual Layer Black 16X DVD +/-R/RW oem
    Sony's new Double Layer DVD recording brings new capability to your PC. With the ability to store up to 4 hours of high quality MPEG-2 video (or up to 8 hours of MPEG-1 video) or up to 8.5GB of information on a single sided disc with 2 recordable layers. DVD+R DL discs are write once discs of the DVD "+" format, and once recorded they are playable in standard consumer DVD players and computer DVD-ROM drives. What's more, the new Double Layer drives from Sony record the popular DVD+R and DVD+RW 4.7GB standard discs and D-R/RW discs too!
    thanks in advance, t4lor.

    Yes it is. According to the description, on single layer DVD's it will burn to both + and minus formats. Dual layer discs are DVD+R DL only
