Taiyo Yuden DL +R?

#1

Does Yaiyo Yuden make dvd +R in DL? If so, is it available in the US & from where?
Thanks


#2

No, only DVD-R DL (which sucks as a format though).


#3

I thought DVD+R DL would have been the choice for manufacturers because of its bit setting capability to make it more compatible. How good is Taiyo Yudens -R Dual Layer media is it as good as their single layer.


#4

Who knows… its availability is limited to Japan at the moment, and adding to that, the firmwares don’t properly support it yet.

Taiyo Yuden opted for DVD-R DL because the DVD-R format is much stronger in Japan (TV broadcasts are all “protected” so CPRM-capable media is needed, and only DVD-R can do this).

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL is showing up on eBay in the US.

But at that price I won’t be testing any soon :frowning:
