Data DVD. A single-sided, single-layered data DVD can store approximately 4.7 gigabytes (GB) of music, video, or data files. The storage capacity of a DVD disc is doubled to 9.4 GB when you use either double-sided, single-layered discs or single-sided, dual-layered discs. The use of a double-sided, dual-layered disc quadruples the DVD's storage capacity to 18.8 GB.
The type of recordable DVD disc you would use depends on your DVD burner. Certain DVD burners can only burn to certain types of recordable DVDs. For example, with some DVD burners, you can only record to a DVD+R or DVD+RW or to a DVD-R or DVD-RW. However, other DVD burners will let you burn to all of these recordable DVD types. To determine what types of DVDs your DVD burner can burn, consult the manual that came with your DVD burner.
As long as your DVD burner supports burning to these types of discs, you can burn a DVD in the Player using one of the following types of recordable or re-recordable DVD media: DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, and double-layered DVD+R. The Player does not support burning to DVD-RAM discs.
Burning DVD-Audio and DVD-Video discs is not supported in the Player.
