Basic question about Double layer DVD

  Grandad99 17:44 02 Feb 2015

Haven't needed to buy any recordable DVDs for some years and looking at current on line suppliers I see there are now 8.75GB double layer ones available.

Apart from the extra capacity is there any difference in using them?

None - but you may want to check ahead of time that your DVD writer can handle dual layer DVDs.

OK for data but your DVD player under the TV probably can't play a film off them.

Fruit Bat /\0/\: good point.

Thanks both. Out on both counts - you have saved me wasting time and money.
