    Hi,

    Can someone please recommend a tool (freeware) that will reliably provide me with the
    version & revision for DVD-RAM discs??

    Imgburn reports my disc as : Version 6
    Top of disc states DVD-RAM 3x

    Wikipedia specs for DVD-RAM:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-RAM

    DVD-RAM version 1.0, recording speed 1x
    Single-sided, one layer discs with a capacity of 2.58 GB
    Double-sided one layer discs with a capacity of 5.16 GB
    DVD-RAM version 2.0, recording speed 2x
    Single-sided, one layer discs with a capacity of 4.7 GB
    Double-sided one layer discs with a capacity of 9.4 GB
    DVD-RAM version 2.1/Revision 1.0, recording speed 3x
    DVD-RAM version 2.2/Revision 2.0, recording speed 5x
    DVD-RAM version 2.3/Revision 3.0, recording speed 6x max
    DVD-RAM version 2.4/Revision 4.0, recording speed 8x max
    DVD-RAM version 2.5/Revision 5.0, recording speed 12x max
    DVD-RAM version 2.6/Revision 6.0, recording speed 16x max

    From this i read my disc is vesion 2.6/revision 6.0 .. is this correct?
    I'm assuming imgburn is reporting the revision as there's no version 6.

    Thanks!

    This is a good tool to find out about all types of recordable disc.

    But, no, your RAM disc is not Rev6. That would be one of the mythical 16X discs. Apparantly they do exist, but I've never seen one.

    If your disc says 3X on top, then it's a V2.1 disc. They are the most common type.
    We'll be right back after these messages from Binford!
