of a DVD.

With a DVD 9 you can fit a maximum of 9GB (Well 8.75!) and with a DVD 5 you can fit a mximum of 5GB (Well 4.75 actually).

DVD 9's are referred to as dual layer with DVD 5's being single layer.

The + and the - part refer to the format of the DVD but to be honest there is no real difference in the 2...

Just googled cross flashing, from what I read, I think it refers to flashing the drive with firmware that is not strictly for that drive, some drives seem to tolerate this, where others don't and you can nix the drive.

As mentioned above, I'm not totally sure I've got this right, so maybe someone else will correct me.
