DVD-RW DL and DVD+RW DL -drives?

Postby Henri Tapani Heinonen on Sat Dec 16, 2006 5:55 am

Where can I buy a DVD-RW DL and a DVD+RW DL -drive? Where can I buy discs for them? I just wanna rewrite double/dual layers discs!

Yeah, there's a big difference between coming up with the specs and actually producing the media.

At this point, I don't think the market demand is there. DL media is a very small percentage of the discs being sold. Not to mention, with the price of Blu-ray drives and media coming down, drive and media manufacturers might see that as a better option.

yeah, BD-RE will likely kill DVD+RWDL. And the fact that BD-REDL is even possible and expected out next year makes DVD+RWDL even MORE pointless :P
