Dual Layer DVD-RW

I assume you mean Dual Layer DVD-RW media as opposed to recording hardware.

Searching around on the internet, the only thing that I can find is DVD+R. They are about $9 each.

Looks like the media people are behind the curve.
The same thing happened when they came out with 4X DVD burners. There was no media available for several months.

When I read the sales pitch...

You know..when I see the sales pitches about the dvd burner, I get the feeling that I should be able to use my 4.7G dvd media and get twice the milages. Am I wrong in that?

DVD Burners

I'm not sure what DVD burner you are referencing.

But you can put more movie content on a standard DVD by compression.

I have a set-top DVD burner (Sansui) which can record in four modes on standard DVD-R/RW media.

Fine - 1 hour
SP - Standard Play - 2 hours
LP - Long Play - 4 hours
EP - Extended Play - 6 hours

When you go to LP or EP, the pictures quality is decreased. The "Fine" setting will give you better than standard quality.

Some computer software will let you do the same thing, using the computer DVD burner.

The dual level burners and media is supposed to give you twice the play of SP (standard play) with the same quality pictures.
