Nero supports DVD-R Dual Layer Not surprisingly, Nero is the first to announce support for the DVD-R (minus) Dual Layer recording. Here is the press release:
Nero, leaders in digital media technology, announced today that their award-winning digital media suite, Nero 6, is the first consumer digital media software to support DVD-R dual-layer (DL) recording.
DVD-R DL recording allows the user to store up to 8.5Gbytes of data or up to 8 hours of DVD video on one side of the disc. “Next-generation DVD recording technology is here, and Nero has already provided users with the tools to operate it,” said Jim Corbett, Executive Director of Nero AG. “Dual-layer recording has raised DVD recording technology to new levels, and gives users access to a new and exciting format that was previously available only to professionals.”

The recent update to Nero 6 provides users with enhanced Dual-Layer Recording tools including DVD-R DL disc support for 8.5GB data storage or 120 min playback time (SP) for DVD-Video. Nero BackItUp’s extensive back up features takes full advantage of the increased disc space of DL discs. Nero Express 6 and Nero Burning Rom allows users to burn standard data and digital audio discs with up to 8.5 GB in size. Also included in Nero 6 are the powerful DVD and digital video playback software, Nero ShowTime 2, the standard packet writing application, InCD 4 and the label creator, Nero Cover Designer. Each application can be accessed with a single click via the one-of-a-kind application launcher Nero StartSmart, providing users with an at-a-glance overview of what DVD drives have to offer.

I have had 1Click DVD Copy for several months now and they do dual layer recording! They aren't as expensive as Nero either.

I used 1 click dvd copy for Dual Layer and found some playback compatibility issues, I have used Nero 6 (with Decrypter)and had no playback problems.

I have tried to burn a video file onto the less expensive DVD- R duel layer disc to keep the quality, but Nero does not seem to recognise the media, prior to burn it adjusts the file size to fit onto normal 4.7 disc and advises use DVD 9 media disc!.
