  1. Just wondering why commercial video DVDs have a higher capacity that
    the blank discs I normally buy eg DVD-R etc. Am I correct in that the
    former is single sided? And if so can I get higher capacity single
    sided writeables?

  2. Yes, double layer. They've gotten quite a bit cheaper.

    Best regards,

  3. To clarify, commercial DVD videos are double layer?

    If you want high quality and long record times, you need double layer.

    The last double layer discs I bought (Verbatim) are rated for 8.5G/240
    minutes, and a 2.4X record speed. You need DVD DL hardware for these.

    I can put only an hour of video on the single layer discs I buy.
