    It depends on the configuration of your MacBook. If it's a Core Duo, I believe those were not dual-layer Super Drives. I am pretty sure the Core2Duos are. Also make sure you have a Super Drive and not just a combo drive that comes in the base model

    Go to :apple: > About this Mac > More Info
    Look under Hardware there should be a "Disc Burning" section. Click it and it will say all the types of media you can burn to. If your DVD burner can burn dual layer it will say under DVD write: +R DL
