Super Multi-Format DVD is a proprietary format that records to both DVD and VHS, but can record in all currently available DVD recording formats: DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW/DVD+R DL and DVD-RAM.

Here's an explanation of all the other formats "DVD
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia"

Super Multi-Format appears to be the newest technology.
Hopefully the above will help you sort this out a bit better.

That link is talking about a specific piece of equiptment it appears that has both a DVD burner and a separate VHS recorder.

The sentence should really have read: " Super Multi-Format DVD is a proprietary format that can record in all currently available DVD recording formats: DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW/DVD+R DL and DVD-RAM. "

I agree with you on that :D So what's difference between Super Multi-Format DVD Burner, Dual Layer DVD Burner, and Lightscribe DVD Burner ??? I mean i have a little bit idea of what these are but can one drive have both or all three features ? Or do u have to buy specific drive for your needs ? Lets say i need to label my disks so i will buy a DVD Burner which has LightScribe right ? But can that drive be a Super Multi-Format DVD Burner as well

Yes, though DVD-RAM has always been a "niche" market and practicly dead.
Here is an example of such a drive. (DVD9 = DL)
Of course, with Blu-Ray coming on, you'll need a seperate drive for that at the moment.
And don't forget, with lightscribe you need lightscribe discs.
