What model DVD drive do you have?

We can help you with determining the types of DVD's you need but you will get no support in how to burn your pirated movies here.

You can use either DVD+R or DVD-R and quite honestly I can't tell the difference between the two standards.

They are the same as far as disk capacity. Your drive supports dual layer media so you can either get single layer which is 4.7GB or Dual Layer which is 9.4GB. The only difference is in price.

It is a little out dated as dual layer technology as increased ten fold. You no longer need to flip the disk over.

Good FAQ on DVD media, grinch.

To determine which media to use, you need to know what you will be playing it on the most. If you use a DVD player to play your burned movies, then find out what your DVD player can play. Some can play all type of media and some only play either DVD-R or DVD+R. You can use this site to check your DVD player:

Right now I consider Dual Layer DVDs obselete for me. (Unless you use them for backup, but I have another hard drive for that.)

Lets say you back up DVDs. Purely for legal purposes, just backing up the library dontcha know? :wink: ) Most DVDs nowadays ARE Dual Layer, but you could just use DVD Shrink or other shrinking software to fit them on a single layer DVD without any noticeable quality loss.

I want to get a dual layer burner. I like DVD Shrink but on some DVD's, there is a noticeable loss in quality and I like to keep the extras. My 20th anniversary edition Scarface couldn't be shrunk with DVDShrink :(

Yeah, with a lot of bonus features I can see why it would be useful. Then I'd just use my friends :-D
