Smile will my dvd drive burn on dual layer dvd's

nec dvd rw nd-3500ag

i think the above is my dvd drive. i clicked properties in my computer and looked into my hardware. this is what it said about my dvd burner.

what i want to know providing that the above is correct, can burn dual layer dvd's. as far as i know i only use +R dvd's to burn but can it burn a dual layer dvd and if so which kind.
