Someone told me that my drive is NOT DVD-R Dual Layer compatible according to this? Can you show me where on this it says my drive IS DVD-R Dual Layer compatible to burn onto?

Don't use Skype and it will all depend on what program you are using. Most have a option to burn video to dvd. It really depends on what format the video is in.
