    Can I burn dual layer DVDs?
    I've got a Macbook Pro and it's running OS X 10.4.11

    It has never been my primary computer until recently and I don't know what types of discs I can burn... I've only tried a music cd and that worked fine.

    I just went into m system profiler and found this:

    Firmware Revision: AP09
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -R DL, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL
    Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes
    Burn Underrun Protection DVD: Yes
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
    Media: No

    The -R DL and +R DL, mean I can burn dual layer DVDs correct?

    I just want to make sure, before I go out and pick up those expensive things haha.

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    Correct, though it's something of a dark art, and many people have no luck trying.
    DVD-R DL seems to be more reliable though.

    Cool thanks. Will both + and - play on standard players?
