I mean, it took me a while to find the right drivers (the Panasonic ones) then I had to hack them in order to make them compatible with XP64 and then update them.
The media is still a bit expensive and in term of performance DVD-RAM disks may be safer and last longer, but they runs at X4 (which is actually about X2.4 for verification).
Loading the entire contents of a DVDRAM to hard disk took about 30 minutes and only to access the contents (the time it takes from inserting the disk and being able to read the contents) takes about 30 seconds.
Furthermore, these special DVD-RAM drivers cannot work alongside InCD nor DirectCD (packet writing)…as yet, I am not sure about the implications of that, but it looks rather limiting. What if one needs to access/write on old CD-RW/DVD-RW formatted with InCD? Also, I will have to remember to uninstall InCD when installing Nero…
I know packet writing stinks :a …but DVD-RAM as a viable alternative seems to have many limitations too.
Is DVD-RAM really worth the fuss?
I’ve only bought 5 DVD-RAM and I am not really sure.
