The best thing about a DVD±RW DL drive is that they are compatible with all DVD/CD medias except for Blu-Ray disc. You can even use Lightscribe disc in a standard DVD±RW drive too, but you won't have the capability of creating laser etched labels since the drive itself is not Lightscribe.

Yeah, the DVD+/- drive can also burn dvd-r's, dvd-rws, dvd+r, and dvd+rw's. Both drives can read dvds, and cds.
