Default dual layer question

i have this DVD burner
and in the specs it says that it can write a dual layer DVD right?
isnt that what DVD-R DL or DVD+R DL means?

It should be able to burn DVD Dual Layer, and read dual layer as well.

Not as long as you have the nessasary drivers and software and it installed and configured correctly. Usually, the operating system takes care of the drivers. You still need 'burning software' if you want to burn discs.

What difficulties are you having with your drive? Can't read a burned DVD?

The drive you posted a link to has been deactivated. Being Asus, I would consider it good quality. I favor Pioneer and Plextor optical drives, I've worn out one of each and they alway impressed me with durability.
