DVD DL - R or DVD DL + R
DVD DL - R or DVD DL + R –
Ok now that i finily have my dual burner the NEC 3540 which Dual Layer disks should i get -R or +R i know i can use the toxic patch for +R DL disks but i have found no info on -R DL I was under the inpression that the -RDL would be more compatible with PS2's.
Unfortunatelly no, DVD-R DL is less compatible at this moment. So use a QUALITY (MKM based, Verbatim/Philips) DVD+R DL, use the hacked firmware, set the booktype to DVD-ROM and that's it. DVD-R DL still has a long long way to go to achieve much better compatibility, the main problem is that the disk is mostly identified as DVD-R and devices think it is a single layer disk... DVD Forum was too late with this one, to be honest at that price I cannot say it will have a promising future.
Not exactly. Nero has since released their LJR update (Layer Jump Recording) which is specifically designed to help compatibility on D/L DVD-R. That being said I still stick to D/L DVD+R because when it is on sale it is significantly cheaper. Not sure about in the UK though.

Really do they have some studies done on this?
