    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a DVD-RAM drive and a DVD-R (RW) drive.

    I am keen to purchase one of the above but I am unsure as to which is best?

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks
    Rob

    Rob,

    I very nearly bought a DVD-RAM drive until I saw the price of the media. Its very dificult to cost justity, its cheaper to buy a movie on DVD than it is to record a film on recordable DVD media. I'd wait for the dust to settle with the various standards and hopefully the media will have come down in price to a reasonable level.

    but ram is 5.2gb and can only be read in ram drives, normally caddy driven.

    dvdr/rw is 4.7gb and can be used in normal players.

    i hear dvdram is going to use dvdr format soon so it may be compatible in the future.

    a dvdr is about £9 at the moment.
