Panasonic DVD RAM Problem

by moranacus / June 16, 2009 7:20 AM PDT

Me and my brother both have a Panasonic DVD player that can record on RAM discs. He doesn't have the exact same machine as me but they are both Panasonic.
For some reason when he records a program on a RAM disc and brings it to my house to play the RAM disc the DVD player makes noise and won't play (it says it can't read the disc).
What could be causing this problem????
We are using the Panasonic brand of RAM disc and I even had a problem one time trying to play something on a RAM disc that I recorded.
The DVD made a really load noise and I wasn't able to get the RAM disc out until I unplugged the DVD player and let it unplugged for afew minutes.
We think it maybe the brand of RAM disc we are using (Panasonic).
Anyone else ever had a problem with Panasonic RAM discs????

most if any dvd player can play ram format disc. Of course the recorder should read it and your computer might read it.

AFAIK DVD-RAM is the least compatible of the DVD formats, regardless of whether or not it arrived to market before DVD-RW. There are plenty of drives that will simply not play DVD-RAM discs. Please elaborate on this if you can ;).

"can" should have been "can't".
