DVD-RAM is an older format for DVD writers. By older I mean I saw it
in stores first.  I have no idea the actual history of these devices.  
I saw a creative DVD RAM burner several(more than 5) years ago at Incredible
Universe of all places(although it could have been Microcenter, memory
is a touch hazy, must be getting old)
