I have this DVD RAM disc, that's right, RAM, not ROM, what do i need to play it? My PS2 won't and neither will my DVD player, let alone my PC (which is a CD ROM oh god soooo retro!). Anyway, any ideas?

DVD-RAM is a different format that is not compatible with most existing DVD players. I'm don't know what it plays on though.

You uhh... need a DVD-RAM drive. Haven't seen one of those since I was a freshman in college.

My Dad recorded it for me on his new DVD player. But I can't get in touch with him until next week, which will be too late, because the next episode of Dr Who will have been and gone!

DVD-RAM drives are pretty rare now. I can get a DVD-RAM RW drive for £15... Basically, manufacturors split into two different teams when the DVD came around. Sony being the main make on one side and Panasonic being on the other. Sony's 'team' invented the DVD-ROM drive while Panasonic made the DVD-RAM drive. They both had advantages, but in the end the ROMs won because they could store more (upto 10Gb per side). But in Aberdeen, Scotland, they are working on a DVD disc that has the capability to hold terabytes of data through a new type of storage and reading.
