    No DVD9 recordables are available at the moment and probably not for some time.

    Try

    www.bigpockets.co.uk
    www.blankdiscshop.co.uk

    for dvd-r's

    Go for ritek G03 or G04

    Then use dvd shrink to fit dvd9 onto one disc, you might need to strip out extras and audio commentaries etc.. and even then may require compression.. (but you wont notice a loss in quality on a tv)

    Cheers

    Steve

    Just to clarify what Steve said, the DVD9 recordables are available, just very expesive. Something like $1000 for the burner and $15 for the media.

    So, in essance, they really aren't available.

    Im not sure you can actually 'burn' DVD-9 discs. Instead i think you need to buy a pressing machine for pressing the data on to the disc. Each impression made costs thousands of $'s and is only viable for large movie companies producing a lot of DVD's
