Save your money Ronco Rox!

It appears that you do have a dual layer burner. It's a Samsung TS-H552.

Single-layer DVD burners aren't too expensive, and dual-layer burners are only about $10-$15 more. Personally, I would avoid any of the next-gen formats like Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, no matter how appealing the paper specs are. They're just way too expensive, and there are still glitches and problems with players and so forth.

If these Holographic discs are to come really soon (5 years), I will go foward to holographic. It took me some times to go DVD burner. I might buy another one as they are $55 for LG..and it's a burner.

Scroll down a bit on that page I posted and look at what it says in the screenie of the Nero Tool.

It also says this in the review:
Quote:
The device was connected in our test PC and was identified as "TSST corp CD/DVDW TS-H552B " under WinXP.

Some software, like Apollo DVD Copy allows you to choose. There's a box in the destination half that you can check and it says, 'Copy to dual-layer disc.'

From that screenie, your drive definately writes DVD+R DL. There should be an option somewhere in the Nero DVD section for dual layer writing, but I'm not sure as I don't have a dual layer burner yet.
