just bought a new liteon dvd double layer burner and have successfully burned a half a dozen now....but, can anyone take a minute to give the basics of actually using the double layer capabilities? ive just done single layers and have no idea where to start. Thanks in advance !!

you don't have to do anything special, if your drive is dual layer then on the disk capacity allocation bar at the bottom of the Burning software you are using it should say 9Gb (instead of 4.5Gb) then you just insert a dual layer disk (bit pricey at £4.50 Each) and burn away.

DL is twice the capacity of a regular DVD-/+R. Theoratically, a DVD movie could be burned on a DL disk. With a DVD-/+R, the movie would have to be compressed/shrunk to fit the size. Bear in mind that DL is write-once.

IMO, DVD-RAM owns them all. It's rewriteable for 100,000 times, according to B-Gold Help. DVD-RW does much fewer times. Hence, DVD-RAM is my posion of choice. :)
