I want to purchase a DVD recorder and note that dual layer drives have now been release. However, although it sounds ridiculous, I can't find anywhere that sells dual layer discs!! Does anyone know where I can get them from?

Thanks

Gary

Big Pockets are selling the Sony DRU700 but they don't have dual layer disks in stock which seems strange.

The only sight which I found DVD9 - Dual Layer Discs(and bought from) - brand is 'traxdata' - is click here (even ebuyer don't sell them)and they are very reasonably priced (I buy a lot of other things from them). Also if you have the right software to copy with, ie de-encryption patch they do work on standard domestic DVD Player and mine is an old model (I have just tested one).
Hope this helps,
Ian

You dont want DVD-R DL discs anyway as they have the book type DVD-RDL which is highly imcompatible by all acounts (one reason why they aint out yet) At least DVD+R DL get bit set (even on NEC drives) to DVD-ROM.

Before -R DL became available I bought an LG GSA-4163 drive, which writes +/-R and +R DL.

To be honest, though, I haven't used DL discs yet because they're so expensive by comparison with single layers.

Another problem is that there are no RW DL discs available, so if you're recording video you can't test it first, which could result in costly mistakes.

I'm sticking with single layer for now, will use DL on my existing drive when discs get cheaper and await the arival of BluRay! :-)

Cheers,

Gary
