    if i understand your question correctly. dual layer burning is basically the ability to burn a DVD 9 dvd as is without compression. unlike a DVD 5 which is a unmodified dvd or a DVD 9 compressed.

    Try and get a burner that does at least DVD-R and DVD+R at burn speeds of at least 12X.

    DL Burn ability is also good for down the road.

    Remember how expensive even DVD-5 media was a little over a year ago, about the same as DL media today.
