I'm considering buying the LG GSA-4163BA but it's only available in OEM package. Can anyone suggest suitable software that supports all formats including DVD RAM?

nero is very good all round and you can get oem version about a five.

As for RAM disk, so burning software is needed. You put it in and click DVD icon under my computer and format and use it.

RAM discs work the same way as a "huge" floppy disks

Thanks for the advice TomJerry. Do you know which specific version of the Nero software is best and can you recommend a sales outlet? I've noticed that some retailers are charging more for the software than the DVD drive itself!!

it has no fancy box and short of a few functions which you may never need click here.

If you really need those "missing" functions, just go to Nero's web site and buy an update. Work out cheaper.

If you really do not want to pay, just download nero's FULLY working demo version, valid for 30 days. After that, download newer version. Nero just pop new version out every month. Very naughty, but this is only legal way if you do not want to pay.

You have to order the software as an additional item. Go to the software section and you will see it all listed.
