C. DVD-9 Projects

Appendix C. DVD-9 Projects

Back in Chapter 2, we mentioned that dual-layer burners were imminent—so imminent, in fact, that they became available in July 2004. Not only did they become available, but also, they launched at a street price of about $240! Quite the introduction, don’t you think?

If you rushed out to buy one of the new models, you might have been a bit disappointed that DVDSP wouldn’t work with it. Or more precisely, that DVDSP could not use the DL media. But fear not, you do have options.

Toast 6 from Roxio can burn to dual-layer media. The media itself still was expensive (around $12/disc) when we went to press, but that price should drop as manufacturers catch up. Obviously, it’s still cheaper to use two single-layer discs when you can, but it sure is convenient to put long movies (or several short ones) on one disc. This chapter goes through the steps required to build a DVD-9 project in DVDSP. We’ll also show you how to burn an image to a DL disc via Toast.
