This is long overdue. They should have released a Re-Writable Dual-Layer DVD standard ages ago.

…at a maximum of 2X… :r :frowning: And the price is… :frowning: :o :r

And they coulden’t make these years ago because…? 1000’s of re-writes? I never get more than 4-6 re-writes from DVD-/+RW’s. I always get a “there is a problem with the media” message. Oh well. Good for pornios :d

tit-able? I like your thinking!!

Woo-hoo! 2x!

2x is just almost always the introductory speed for new media. I mean most Verbatim +R DL is still 2.4 although you can overburn it to 8x. Won’t be long before 4x is available if the format does well. I also heard that the +R group was looking at rewritable DL so maybe they will debut with their usual 2.4 speed. I guess it means new drives will be needed so I wonder if there will be any drives capable of writing to this when the media is released in August?

If we need new writers to use this media, then that’s crap. I cbf buying ANOTHER dvd writer. I have like 6, 5 of which are all hooked up and in use. No need for more :stuck_out_tongue: Anyways, I’ll stick to SL RW media.
