AfterDawn: Glossary


DVD-10 means a two-sided DVD disc that hold single data layer on both sides.

Effectively this means that DVD-10 is a dual-sided DVD-5 and can hold 8.75 gigabytes of data with 4.38 gigabytes on each side. Two-sided discs need to be flipped over in order to access the other data side.
