Hi Tiemo,
as far as I know, DL disks have been in the DVD specification since  
almost the start, so all players should play plant-pressed ones (just  
like the movie DVD's you can buy). I know that some early DVD players/ 
writers cannot play DL disks that were produced directly from a DL DVD  
writer though. That bit of the specification came along later I think.
