A dual-layer DVD+RW specification was approved in March 2006 with a capacity of 8.5 GB.[2] However, manufacturing support for rewritable dual-layer discs did not materialize due to cost and expected competition from newer formats such as Blu-ray, which provides up to 25 GB on a single layer.

No, Its available in the Market, I bought it for Rs. 25. But the main disadvantage is if I try to write the content out of 5 DVD, 2 will gives Error, so i stopped buy DL DVD.

I guess you're again talking about DVD-R DL, which is not rewritable. The talk is about DVD-RW DL.

Very true. I still have some lying in my drawer. Even scratchless RWs can no longer be burned again. Have completely stopped using optical media now.
