Current state of Dual-Layer Burning Support in Linux


Hey all. I was just wondering what the current state of dual-layer burning was in Linux? If I have a 7 GB ISO image, will I be able to burn it to a dual-layer disc through nautilus or even k3b if need be? Or does cdrecord not yet support dual layer dvd discs?

Hi.

The dual-layer aspect is handled by the drive itself, so cdrecord (and therefore nautilus and K3b) can burn these discs just fine.

Yes cdrecord ( and K3b ) do support Dual Layer.

Thx for your answers everyone! My mom has a dual-layer DVD burner in her computer and I have a single layer. I like backing up my DVDs so when my brother borrows them he doesn't ruin them, so I normally use vobcopy+transcode+mplex to do this. She never uses the DVD burner for single layer discs, never mind dual-layer, so I was thinking of switching them. Sometimes, though, mplex has trouble making the audio and video sync properly. It would be much easier if I could just use vobcopy and then dvdauthor/dvdstyler to reburn the disc.

EDIT : Lol, this post made no sense. Essentially, I don't want to have to use transcode when backing up DVD's
