Are double layer lightscribeable DVD blanks available anywhere?

I just bought a writer (Pioneer IIRC but I'm not at home to check right now) that supports lightscribe and is double layer capable, but the only DVD blanks I can find are the 4.7G. Does anyone know if what I'm looking for exists yet?

TIA

I don't think so... I looked at three or four of the large media companies site's (Meritline, MediaSupply, etc.) and none of them have DL LS DVDs. Apparently you can get LS DVDs or DL DVDs, but not both.

Have you ever used lightscribe? If not, I would not worry too much about it. I guess if your wanting to do a simple name label its fine, but any large graphic is horribly slow. And the lightscribe imprint actually does go bad with age. I have a few only a couple of years old that are getting pretty bad.

I love lightscribe. Sure it does fade a bit over time. But it sure beats sloppy marker writing anyday.

Haven't tried lightscribe yet so this will my first experience. I just picked up the SL DVDs so we'll see how it goes, I'm trying to create my own DVDs of shows I've Tivo'd.
