This media is supposed to be written at 2.4x, but Nero 6.6 and DVD Decrypter identified this media as 4x capable. I burned them at 2.4x just to be safe.

I bought 4 of this disk in a near by store. Since in CR is very difficult to find DL media I decided to give this a try. I needed two disk for data backups, so I bough an extra pair to test some dual layer compatibility.

To validate compatibility I burned two copies of the same 7.85 GB movie. One with book type set to DVD+R DL and the other set to DVD-ROM.

On the PC compatibility when the book type was set to DVD+R DL it could not be read by a Toshiba DVD-RAM SD-W2002. The same problem happened with a Samsung combo drive SM-348B. Finally a Panasonic DMR-E55 recorder was not able to play the movie either.

These problems disappeared completely when the media was book type was set to DVD-ROM. I would recommend this media, but only if you can set the book type to DVD-ROM, otherwise you will find many compatibility problems.
