Please help a new beginer. I was wondering what the differance is between the Dual Layer vs. Dual Sided DvD's are?
Also, the Dual Sided DVD. Is that split between 4.0ish gig per side. If so, and your are copying a 6 g DVD(software program as back-up), what do you do? Does Toast tell you to turn the disk over and continue the burm? Will this be a successful backup copy of my software?
I looked around the net and have not founf the answers to these questions,
Dual side is basically 1 DVD-R on each side of the disc. You would need to author 2 seperate DVD's and burn them on to each side of the disc. You can't make 1 DVD file that is 8GB and burn one side then flip over the disc and burn the other....you need to author 2 seperate DVD's.
With Dual layer you can author 1 file that is 8.5GB in size and burn it all at once.
Not unless it says it will burn either DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL. From you post doesn't look like it will. You can get a new Pioneer 109 drive on Newegg for like $50 that will burn both the +R DL and the -R DL discs.
