I think DVD RAM support is hardware related. So no, if your current drive doesnt support dvd-ram, I don’t think you can just install software to enable support.

I think the only solution would be to buy a DVD RAM capable drive.
But hopefully some one more knowledgeable in the subject can chime in

PS: what drive do you have? are you sure your drive doesn’t support DVD-RAM? I think most modern buners support it, (but to be honest I dont know, as I have never used it).

^ Completely agree with ffire06 :iagree:

Installing a piece of software won’t suddenly make a PC drive capable of reading (or writing) to DVD-RAM, if the drive itself doesn’t support it.

As also suggested, please tell us what model drive (or drives) is/are in your PC, and we can go from there - maybe recommend you a capable model if yours does not support DVD-RAM.

LOL! Good thinking Batman, forgot about Dell’s occasional quirks (luckily, my own Dell-rebadged Sammies already had the DVD-RAM bits enabled). :slight_smile:

Also you can download VSO Inspector (free) and it will tell you everything your burner can read and write if you aren’t sure

Yeah some of the NEC drives were like that as well.
