I have some questions about DVD-RAM:
DVD-RAM is much more robust, reliable and has a greater rewriting capacity compared to DVDÂ±RW media.It can be formatted with a FAT32 filesystem to allow drag and drop ease of use.Built in error checking should produce reliable backup writing every time.
Check this page for more info and tests: http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/172/8
Thanks. I should've included this, but how's Linux support? Can DVD-RAM use a Linux filesystem, like ext3 or similar, and allow a Linux system to be installed on the DVD-RAM?
Hmm I'm not sure about that one.CD-R and DVDÂ±R media can both be used for bootable Linux discs, so I don't see why DVD-RAM media couldn't handle it (unless the Linux OS in use doesn't support DVD-RAM? )
The cartridges are great. So many people don't like them, but their seems to be no logical reason.
DVD-RAM is much better in all respects than other DVD optical media. Packet writing on - and plus is a joke. Dont do it for data you care about.
Let's hope adam917 still cares about answers to his questions now, 16 months after he posted this thread!
Oops. My bad. I'm trying not to bring old threads up, but sometimes I just forget to look at the date ^^"
