although this particular forum is for newbies and being one I have a newbie question. Other than the price of Dual Layer blank meida, why not use Dual layer disc, so that i can just burn the whole DVD with out having to do any kind of editing and such? I am about to build a PC specifically for DVD burner and a few other things. So I will only be pruchasing a cd/dvd rom and dvd burner, but am considering getting a NEC dual layer burner becase they are low priced. P.S. I searched the forums and did not find anything in regard to Daul layer. Though the other day someone did post that they were using daul layer. Once again sorry to ask this in the Newbie forum.
