I could have sworn they were ~$20 just a month ago... Anyway, is that a special Fry's price or standard cost?

nothing can do what DVD Shrink did for DVDs, AnyDVD HD just removes protection.

you guys got me all getty about burning BR movies

seriously last time I checked, BR media was going for $25/piece, $9 is more reasonable. Question, do they make other size BR media like 25gb? Would hate to waste a full size one.

Can these burn dual layer BD discs? And how much are dual layer discs? Like $50 a pop?

EDIT: ~$30ish a pop:

which drives? GGW-H20L burns DL perfectly, Fry has 50gb Panasonic for 25

don't use Sony media, Panasonic 2x burns at 2.4x, Sony 2x burns at 1.9x. Verbatim 2x burns at 6x


4x Panasonic
http://shop3.outpost.com/product/544...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

DL Panasonic
http://shop3.outpost.com/product/490...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG


BTW, they also make 8cm BD media that is about 8gb, but right now hard to find in USA

yes, but imaging your harddrive to a single disc is an amazing concept lol.

i would love to image a fresh Vista install to a 25GB disc and just ghost it when i want a fresh install. that'd be sweet.
