Dvd Double Layer Questions

#1

Hello everyone

im about to order the SAMSUNG SE-S184M DVD Drive
i need a reliable fast DVD writer for my home system
i mainly use DVD+RW Disks from TDK and MAXELL

can anyone tell me if when i burn my 1st double layer Data disk at 8.5GB, will this disk work in my SONY VAIO Laptop?
im just unsure about these double layer disks, and if when playing them, the other drives that you play them on MUST be dual layer also?
sorry if this question is silly, but im a NEWBIE! :o

what are the best quality disks to use?
is any manufacturer better than others for quality of their disks?

many thanks for your time

Yes, so long as your laptop has a dvd rom or dvdr/w drive and the disc has been properly burnt.

Verbatim (and don’t even think about using any other brand of dual layer disc if you want reliable dual layer burns).

all dvd-roms will play DL discs…just make sure u buy verbatim +r Dl discs and u burn what you want w/ DVD Decrypter…

I would say: All DVD-ROMs should play DL. At least there is a difference between pressed DL media and recordable DL media. :wink:
