    Can my MBP burn dual layer DVDs?
    I have the first gen MCP 17" and under my profile it says:

    DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL

    Can I burn dual layer discs? What does the +R mean?

    That profile says it will burn DVD -R, +R, + or -RW (Re-writable), and + Dual Layer. So yes, It will burn Dual Layers as long as they are +R's.

    I just bought a box of Memorex +R Dual Layers. They work well in the same drive as you have.

    What is the difference between -R and +R discs?

    This tells what you are asking better than anything else I could find right now.
