    When burning to a dual layer disk, will the data be written to both sides of the disk? If this is the case, I'm guessing any kind of labeling is out of the question. correct?

    You are reffering to a flipper(dvd10, dvd18). This is a disc with the ability to store data on each side of the disc. I usually write on the center ring where the hub spins it. Dual layer(DVD9) is a disc with 2 layers of data on one side like most dvd videos. You can also have dual layers flippers(dvd18) which hold 4 layers of data. I know of people who put labels on the center of their flippers, but I don't like to. The glue may warm up and spread to the center and gum up your drive. Like I said, I usually just use a disc marker and write on the center ring instead.

    Don't hold your breath. There's not much DL media to chose from right now. I'm still waiting for the price to go down. With HD-DVD and BluRay on the horizon, who knows what I'll be buying by the end of the year.
