Hi Shutt1e,this should explain better than trying to type everything out for you.click here

There is no practical difference between the 2 formats. Use the one that is compatible with your equipment. If all your equipment is compatible with both formats, buy the brand you like best and is the cheapest.

No difference at all. Think of Betamax and VHS videos. This should explain.click here

skidzy i looked at the guide and is it worth buying dual layer dvds

FelixTCat has pointed out " Use the one that is compatible with your equipment. " This is a very good statement,as i have had several problems finding a dvd media that works well on my Dell laptop.

Ive now found a certain type and try to stick with this as this now works well for me.

Well noted FelixTCat
