is this a double layer dvd drive?

Usually the DL in product name means it will write to R9 media, worth checking though.:D

I have :eek: However prices may come down so it's a good idea to be compatible if you can. In the meantime I use DVDshrink: I have 2 DVDs where the plastic around the centre hole is cracking up so I needed to back them up while they were still readable.

I would agree, but prices have been high for RW media for years, and show no signs of coming down, and DL may well, as it's been out a while no with no reduction in price, do the same.

Lite-on drives are pretty good, but Pioneer, LG and NEC take the VFM and write awards.
