Dual Layer DVD ?????

  WallyD 19:28 08 Jun 2004

I visited PC World today and the first display was for DVD Dual layer writers and a comment saying the disc does not have to be turned over etc.
It may be a silly question but will this system need special DVD,s.
Thank you

You will need special dual layer dvd+R media to use this function.at the moment there is none available and in the usa its 5 for about $50,so it will be a few months down the line before they become cheap enough to be viable.

You say you spotted them in PCWorld were they as cheap as this click here
this is an oem products so you just get the bare drive no cables screws or software.

If you are in the market for a dvd/rw it is still a good option to get one of these dual layer writers

Your DVD writer is a fair price
I can't remember the Pc world price but I think it was about £170
