When you buy a DVD-Ram you have to make sure that it is rated for DVD+/-RW, it usually says in on the computer, or on the box itself (if you bought the DVD-Ram separately) Most new DVD-Ram drives have DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-DL, DVD+DL.

DVD-RAM is one of many available formats used for creating re-writeable dvd disks. These are typically used in camcorders and other devices that utilize re-recordable dvd disks.
A DVD-RAM is longlasting and can be rewritten over a lot of times. Also it comes i a case so that it does not get damaged.
Generally, no. In general use, RAM is used to refer to your computer's RAM that loses its contents when it is powered off. A DVD-RAM retains its contents even when powered off, so it would not be RAM. Moreover, the DVD-RAM drive is just like another DVD drive that is connected to your CPU through the IDE controller, while RAM is connected to the CPU through the internal data buses.

DVD-RAM and DVD-RW disks are erasable and reusable
A DVD is the media that data is written to. A DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD/RW etc is the optical storage device.
There is a type of DVD called DVD-RAM. It is rewritable, and supports up to 100,000 rewrites, as opposed to 1,000, for the +rw, and -rw standard. It also has greater error correction ability. DVD-RAM can act like a slow hard drive, in that you can write files directly to the disk, as well as delete individual files. I myself have not seen many DVD drives that support DVD-ram, most likely because the media is expensive, not widley avalible, and exceeds the need of the average user.
