Single: DVD+R(W) or DVD-R(W) only
Dual: DVD+R(W) and DVD-R(W)

Lite-On LDW-401S: Single, writing to DVD+R and DVD+RW but not to DVD-R and DVD-RW
Lite-On LDW-811S: Dual, writing to all four

Sorry I meant single or dual layer Recording
whats the diff.
thanx

Single layer: writes one layer of data on the DVD (4,3Gb)

Double layer: writes on two layers on the DVD (8,5Gb) - no compression needed to back up a DVD9. Needs double layer recorder and media not yet available (both)
