try here: http://www.burnworld.com/howto/articles/intro-to-dual-layer.htm
if you copy a dual layer to another there will be no compression
whatsoever, but you need to mark where the layer breaks so the player
knows when to change. But if your original dvd is a dvd5 meaning 4.5GB
there is no point in making a copy to a dvd9 (dual-layer).
Hope this helps,
