    well I think that if you have the funds(dual layers aren't that much more expensive) go ahead and get the dual layer burner. Right now the dual layer discs are pretty expensive, so when the prices do come down you'll already have a dual layer burner and won't have to go get one. Until then you can just keep on using those single layer discs.
    As far as software to buy.... try the free stuff first.
    Get some practice in and then you can decide on what to buy. DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter are all you need to start with.
    I will also suggest you get a few RW discs to use while learning in case you screw up your first few tries.

    Dual layer burners will do either. I have a Pioneer A08 & 108. They have worked flawlessly.
