They are not dual sided, but rather dual layer :)

Have a look on TM or try http://www.blankcd.co.nz/

So how many do you want or need?

What price per dual sided DVD can you afford to pay?

The other Ned Kelly used to steal but you would not do that would you?

I hope you would need these to back up data you have produced but I do not know.

Even if you could find DVD-18s you will be paying a high price and would be far better off using several good quality single layer DVD-5s

Oops :( I stand corrected.

Can't see any point in have double sided discs. Is there a player that will play them without the user physically having to turn them over?

no there is not Zippity but it just means that you can have more storage space on a dvd

What are you going to store on them?

At that price, you might as well get a flash drive!

Get an external hard drive.
If this is a desktop then just buy another hard drive.

They're pretty cheap these days.
