I have the LG GSA 4163B it supports all formats +DL and DVD-RAM.

It will write a movie disk in just under 10mins at 8x speed for me and has only rejected 2 pieces of media both of which were RW disks.

They have recently released an updated version which support -DL as well which is the GSA 4165B PC Pro gave it 5/6.

That didn't read too well it supports +/- R/RW +DL and DVD-RAM

I have always used pioneer DVD re-writers as i think they are superb and at £33 you cant go wrong

Try SVP. They also sell the media and test compatibility. Current good buy is the NEC 3540 for about £30 (burns dual layer as well and has 16x speed on DVD-R, +R) CD writes at 48x.

pardon my ignorance what is meant by dual layer? (not intending to hi jack the thread)

Dual layer DVDs are twice the capacity approx of a standard DVD. They are more expensive (obviously), but would be useful if you need more data than a standard DVD would accomodate.
Don't ask me how they work.

Dual layer is exactly what it says on the tin

2 layers of dye. the 1st layer gets burnt to then the second layer
