DVD +R
(Double Layer)
Double layer recording technology offers two recordable layers on a single DVD disc, providing nearly
double the capacity of 4.7GB single layer DVDs. The
greatest, most valuable benefit of double layer
recording technology is increased capacity. Storage
space is nearly doubled with double layer DVD+R
media, allowing consumers to burn up to 8.5GB of
video on a single DVD+R disc.

title 2, and cast interviews could be title 3. Each title
is assigned a reference number enabling you to
