    While most DVD players can't accept DVD-RAM caddies, as DVD-RAM is part of the official DVD specs, should all DVD players be able to play caddyless DVD-RAM discs? I know that you can get caddyless DVD-RAM discs, and you can also buy blanks without caddies, so i was just wondering what the situation was regarding playback...

    Its unlikely as they also need to know how to read the data which is laid down in a different format to +rw and -rw.

    Its also impossible to finalise a -ram so you cant even make it look like a normal dvd for playback

    By the way, it's very easy to take RAM discs out of the caddy and vice versa.

    The new Panasonics play caddyless disks and I suspect any new models from Tosh may well do once their DVD recorder is established.
