Question dual layers

Hi, I have got a DVD -R/RW Writer and I havent actually tried it yet. But what I wanted to know is can I write to dual layers and if so what do I do? or is it automatically done?

I am talking about for duplicating already Dual Layer DVDs, if it is not possible can I some how put it across 2 disks?

-Mark

Your DVD Writer should support 'Dual layer burn' to burn DVD's with dual layers. Check with the manufacturer site regarding the support.!

Only if its a new expensive DVD writer will it support dual-layer. Chances are, if you bought your DVD writer before June, it wont support dual layer.

I hardly call 100 bucks expensive in the world of computers. Yes, wal-mart has a "lite on" 2.4x DL burner with 16x DVD-/+R and CD-R combo drive for 109.99.

Wow, I didn't know they are THAT cheap now, I guess I haven't looked in a while.

When I was shopping, dual layer was like $200 or more. I guess it has really changed.
