    i dont think you can get dvd layer 9 disks. In fairness (could be wrong) i think the two layers of a comercial DVD 9 are burnt seperatly and then pressed together, dont quote me tho

    They aren't burned -- commercial DVDs are never burnt, or can you imagine thousands of little kid workers somewhere in South-East Asia sitting in a warehouse next to computers equipped with DVD-R writers and burning you the latest Hollywood movies for some studios to distribute?-)

    DVD-9s are pressed on two thin discs and those discs are then joined together. And therefor DVD-9 recordables will most likely never appear on the markets, due technical reasons.

    Blank DVD-10s appear everywhere where blank discs are sold -- they are just DVD-5s with two sides, normally sold as "9.4GB" to fool morons to think that they can copy direct copy of DVD-9s to those discs :)
