    How much are Dual-Layer discs nowadays?

    Are they just twice as much as single layer discs yet?

    I think i may finally have a use for them, and no, its not for copying dvd movies!

    Yup - bought 5 packs...25 Verbs D/L for £9.85 :-)
    They are 2.4x which doesn't bother me as the 4 and 8x were £30 per pack of 5.

    That is a good price, but personally I won't touch any +R media due to various compatibility issues. When it comes to dual layer discs the only ones I find to be acceptable are Verbatim DVD-R DL 4x discs, not cheap but much more reliable and compatible than any +R DL discs that i've tried.

    well the PC World in Aberdeen didn't have any, not at that price anyway. :\

    I'd be using them for data backups, so as long as i can read them in my burner, i'm not bothered how compatable they are
