    For a while now I have been using DVDFab, DVDDecrypter and DVDShrink to copy DVD's onto DVD+R media. I just bought a new PC that has a dual layer DVD±R/RW drive with lightscribe. I don't plan on using the Lightscribe because I also got an Epson R340.

    My question is should I switch to using DVD-R since they are cheaper? And if I'm using DVDShrink is there any reason to switch to using Dual layer?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    I use Verbatim dvdr- SL disc for movies I have not even used a DL disc yet for one thing they cost to much if you have no real reason for a DL save your money and use the SL.

    So SL DVD-R is the way to go because its the cheapest without any drawbacks?
