Hi everybody!

I'm intrested in getting some DVD+R Dual Layer 8.5GB X8, but I don't know if my burner supports "Dual Layer"/8.5GB.

I'm really clueless when it comes to this whole CD/DVD issue but I would like to emphasise that my main purpose is to store large portions of sensitive data only and not for any DVD/video reason. That's why I could really use 8.5GB disc capacity.

Here's my burner:

Can you tell me if my burner supports it?
Thanks a lot and sorry for my lack of knowledge...

It appears that your burner does support dual layer. Under disk format, on product page, if dual layer disks are supported then you are good. Most new dvd drives pretty much support all formats.

It states right in the link your provided that the drive supports the following media and goes on to list all possible DVD disk type except DVD RAM.

The only other type of DVD disks, if you want to call them that, are Blueray. There was another type called HD but the manufacture of those drives has been halted.
