    I was wondering if Dual Layer Burning is Supported in the New Aluminum Macbook Pro 2.4?

    I do believe it is, prior versions of the Macbook Pro do support Dual Layer Burning, but look at this:

    MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868:

    Firmware Revision: KA14
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 0 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds


    Is that right? Is it possible that my Macbook Pro doesn't support DL DVD??

    It should. Do you have any to try - handy time to make a backup of something large.

    If the 2.4 MBP has it, don't they all have it, even the MBs?

    They all share the same superdrive, right?

    It has it. I've used it to burn a Navigation DVD that was DL.

    the 1st time i ran sys profiler it showed the same thing. after a reboot, and inserting a blank disk, it shows the 2048 cache and all of the correct burn modes. probably a profiler bug.
