Formating DVD RAM Disc

by jlippincott / January 1, 2007 9:58 AM PST

I have a Panasonic DVD Recorder that came with a DVD RAM and went I went to record on it it didn't have to be formated. I bought some more of the same DVD RAM discs and when I put one of this in the DVD
it said I had to format the disc. I thought you didn't have to format a DVD RAM disc. Is this right and will the formated DVD RAM disc still work as a RAM disc?????

The supplied disk was ready to use. Imagine if they hadn't done that? The horror of how many calls to the support lines...

Oh, the answer is yes.
