    I just got a Dual Layer DVD burner for my PC, and I thought Dual Layer blanks were readily available. What I thought was Dual layer banks turned out to be dual sided single layered blanks.

    Are Dual Layered blanks still rare and spendy?

    I don't know what it's like in the US, but over here in the UK I haven't been able to find dual layer blanks for less than about £4.50 [​IMG]

    Dual layer blanks are easy enough to find, but they are pricey. They are about $4 each if you buy 25.

    Ritek RiData Dual Layer DVD+R (DL DVD+R, Double Layer DVD+R) Blank Media 2.4X 8.5GB in Cake Box (DRD+85-RDUSA-CB25), 25 Pack are available at both Meritline and Newegg

    Since 100 RIDATA 4.7GB 4X DVD+RW cost less than 35 cents each, it's hard to justify buying dual layer blanks.

    Unless youre making copies of dual layered discs, which is what I want to do. Oh well, the prices will drop soon enough.

    Guys, sourcing the DL-DVD blank media are fine, but this is not the right forum for discussing bootlegging commerical DL-DVDs.

    Youre right Patrick... and so far, we have not discussed bottlegging commercial DVDs. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I saw these at CompUSA yesterday. They had 3-pack of Verbatims for $19, which is actually pretty cheap and a 25 spindle of Memorex for $100. Out of curiosity I bought a pack of Verbatim and they worked great, but I'll definitely wait for the price to drop substantially before I do that again. As mentioned before, it's just not worth it when you can get the single-layers for dirt cheap.

    Any experience in terms of quality -- J&R has a choice of Memorex & Verbatim (Memorex is cheaper).
