    what would you use to burn them? current home DVD burner's can't do the 9.4GB DVD's because of the layering technology they use.

    I thought DVD+R could do it. Even if they can't burn in layers could you still use them just for larger storage, I just want to know where to find it and how much they cost.

    dvd-r and dvd+r both support around 4.4 gigabytes after formatting. They cannot support more, and dual layer writeable dvd discs are not out yet. The best you are going to get is ~4.4 gigabytes, sorry.

    dvd-r uses dvd-r disks
    dvd+r uses dvd+r disks

    DVD+R is supposed to be compatible with about 1% more DVD players than DVD-R.

    Other than that? :dunno:
