    The DVD+RW Alliance industry group announced the release of the faster 12x/16x Double Layer DVD+R recording specifications on April 2nd. This new v1.2 standard covers burning speeds of up to 16x (around 21MB/s) which results in a writing time of only 9 minutes for a 8.5GB disc. It will take some time for the usual suspects like Plextor, Pioneer or LiteOn to come up with compatible drives. And let's not forget the media manufacturers who also need their time to improve their recordable discs.

    Great, one day the media will catch up with the burner technology and you'll be able to buy 12/16x dual layer disks. In the meantime, use the standard 2.4x dual layer media.

    Meanwhile go burn your 2.4x disk at 16x and you will end up with unreadable flying saucers:nutkick:

    I dont think they will be unusable. They need to make HD and Blu Ray burners cheaper.
