Physical location of layers on DVD+R DL media

Recommended Posts

With a DVD+R DL recordable disc facing up, so the recordable layer is visible on top, where is the location of Layer 0 in the disc?  Is it closer to the label side on the opposite face or is it on top, just below where the recordable surface is visible?  :unknown:

 

Thanks!

Taking the label to be the top, Layer 0 is at the bottom and layer 1 is in the middle.

Thanks for that image!  It was quite helpful.

 

So, whenever you see only a partially full burn on the bottom of a DVD+R DL, that means that that is Layer 0 that is not fully written to, correct?  You won't actually be able to see Layer 1's condition?

Correct.

I guess not, no. As you can't burn more to L1 than L0, you'll perhaps never know (just by looking at it) how much of L1 has been written.
