    Dual Layer Disc's are more properly know as 'Reverse Spiral Dual Layer'. I just find RSDL quicker to type than Dual Layer all the time.

    Nah seriously tho -

    RSDL
    Acronym for "reverse spiral, dual layer," a feature of the DVD format that allows two layers of information to be placed on one side of the disc, with the top layer being transparent. When the laser moves from the top layer of the disc to the bottom, the player may pause briefly. This is called the layer switch, and some are so good you don't know they are there. However, some layer switches are distracting and not well done. An RSDL disc (a type of DVD-9) is gold in color, whereas a single-layered disc has a silver hue. Before the first RSDL disc (Terminator 2), movies longer than about two hours were split across two sides of the disc, which required that the disc be ejected and re-inserted on the other side. As such, they were nicknamed "flippers." Many flippers are still in release, but they are no longer widely manufactured.

    How did I find this out?
