    In relation to the Terminator:SE disc, I was wondering what exactly is a DVD-14? also T2:UE (my copy of it) came on a DVD-18 what exactly is DVD-18? I've looked at Jim Taylor's DVD FAQ but the answer still isn't quite clear to me, could someone please explain to me what these two DVD formats do and what the difference is? thanks.

    Both are high capacity two-sided formats, where the "standard" flipper is a DVD-10.
    A DVD-10 has 5 gigabytes (1 layer) of data on each side.
    A DVD-18 has 9 gigabytes (2 layers) of data on each side.
    A DVD-14 is a combination, which has 9 gigabytes on one side, and 5 gigabytes on the other.

    Here's a really simple description of all the formats for the uninitiated:
    DVD-5 Single layer on one side (~5 GBytes)
    DVD-9 Dual layer on one side (~9 GBytes)
    DVD-10 Single layer on both sides (~10 GBytes)
    DVD-14 Dual layer on one side, single layer on other side (~14 GBytes)
    DVD-18 Dual layer on both sides (~18 GB)
    The first layer on a side holds about 5 gigbytes, the second layer adds about an additional 4 gigbytes. The names (DVD-5, DVD-18, etc.) reflect the data capacity of the discs.
