    i think if you can ask someone to bring it for you from the us then you can bring stuff without duty ...i think the limit is 30k(rupees).. but i`m not so sure..

    A few companies have dual layered writers NEC, Liteon (dont know abt sony). As for the portable audio player go for i-pod. If the i-pods not in ur budget chk out the products from i-river. I can say that cuz i have a i-river product. Max value for money plus regular firmware updates to add newer features to the player.

    the 30k per person without custom duty is the correct figure.
    Do you really write on dvd's,buying blank dvd's is expensive?
    Anyways @ newegg.com,starting dvd rw at 70$

    Hey Vinod as I have already said at TA,go for NEC Dual layer man.It cost only around $80.
    I don't think customs duties will be a problem at all.So get it!
