    Can DVD+R drives burn DVD+R DL disks?

    I have a combo drive in my Dell Vostro 200 which can burn DVD-R and DVD+R but there doesnt seem to be any symbols at the front of the drive that says DVD+R DL.

    Stupid question but does this mean that I will need to new drive to burn the dual layer disks? I wasn't sure if a DVD+R drive will also burn the dual layer one or not.

    Any advice?

    That's what I thought.

    Mine doesnt have any mentions on the front that says its capable of DL but when I ran Nero Infotools, it says my drive has write capabilities including DVD+R DL but not the Minus one.

    Just don't want to buy a pack of DL disks if it doesnt work.

    Does anyone have a Vostro 200 that can burn DUal Layer disks? Or any typical dell drives that doesnt say Dual Layer but can still burn it?

    Mate, im on a look for a new drive for 360 backups, im looking at Pioneer Black Sata. They work well with Aones
