    How long have these double layer DVD writers been out ? Does this mean I can at last make perfect loss free copies of DVD's ?

    What is the difference between dual layer and double layer though ?

    £71.67 on ebuyer at the moment !

    A few weeks - Sony, LG, Philips and others all have the drives out. No dual layer media is currently available though :(

    Yes with appropriate software - although given that dual layer media is £10-£12 per piece it might be cheaper to buy a second comercial DVD :)

    What is needed for the DVD playing device to be able to play "dual layer"?

    Thanks

    All DVDs can play dual layered disks, some are better than others when handling the pause between layers.

    Beware when writing to dual layer discs as they will only write at 2.4x and so will take 45 minutes to complete one disc. I also believe that there are compatibility problems between certain high speed media and the writers.

    Saw some in PCWorld for around £80. They also had 12x DVD Burners for about £79.
