I have seen offered dual layer dvd rewriters.
What is dual layer?
Also they mention 8.5GB.
Is it possible to copy 8.5gb on a single sided dvd disk?

The currently available models are from the DVD+ camp, writing data on to 2 storage layers on the same side of the disk (so no need to turn the disk over).

When writing to dual layer, max speed at the moment is 2.4x. Compatibility is also low (as the writers have just come out). Playing the written DVD on the same DVD writer should be no problem, but playing it in another DVD-ROM or home player may not be that easy.

That's different dual layer, which writes at different depths on one side of the DVD
