how do i use this DVD RAM i didn't know my PC had it standard until i read a review on the Acer Aspire T310, when i purchased it new i was told it was a CD Burner & DVD player but it was actually a CD/DVD burner and DVD RAM, so the sales person was hopeless. but the PC was worth the $1,999 but oly downside was the 15" LCD monitor, should have been 17" but i fixed that situation a couple of months ago i grabed a 19" LCD and upgraded my graphics car to a Radeon 9800 Pro 256mb. the 2.8GHZ P4 along with 80GB hardrive it is a good machine. Needs a new hardrive though seems to be a bit slow these days.

ANy i'm off the topic, DVD RAM: how to use it, where to get discs, what disc are available, how much are they, what are the purpous of the DVD RAM?

This link explains all DVD Formats fairly well.

Also see this DVD-RAM at Wikipedia

Prices for DVD-RAM are typical to this item from Tiger Direct at about $5.00 each +/-.

A google search for the DVD-RAM will show many other vendors.

so a DVD ram is like a hard drive, do they look just like a normal DVD?
Thanks for the links.

Izzy.

It is a DVD. Just a different format. It's like the difference between mp3 and .wav. They both record music just in a little different way. The same is true between DVD-rw, DVD+rw,DVDram. The most popular is DVD-rw.
