Been thinking recently about getting a dvd writer - but heard rumours about dual layer ones being released soon or even upgrades for the ones that are aout now. Does anybody have any info or timescales.
Although think disks are going to be pricy, seeing this is where the clever stuff happens. I can imagine that the cheap DVDRs we get at the moment will have even more problems with them when cheaper DVDR retailers start making dual layer disks.
Sony is a highly schizophrenic organisation, often their consumer electronics and PC hardware arms produce devices which give their media organisations apoplexy.
Also, although dual-layer DVD-ROMS hold 9.4Gb I've seen dual-layer DVD-Rs quoted at 8.5Gb so direct copying will still not be possible, although of course the amount of re-compression will be greatly reduced.
