I have a panasonic E50 DVD-R and DVD-Ram recorder. I want to record decent pic quality movies 2+ hrs long and am thinking about using two-sided DVDs (which may, at this time, be cost-prohibitive - but i am hopeful that costs will drop!). A two-sided DVD-Ram will give me about 4 hrs of standard PQ compared with the single-sided 2 hrs. Anyway, just curious as to how the double-sided discs work: 1) When recording, will I have to "flip" the disc over to record on the other side. 2) When playing back, it is my understanding that i will have to flip the disc - am i correct in this assumption? Also, do you guys think a good quality dvd will come out that will allow 2+ hrs of recording on ONE side? Finally, for those of you in the market for blank one-sided DVDs......Office Max came out today with an add for 50 DVD-Rs (i am not sure of +Rs) for $10 after rebates. Thanks for your help.
