    Will the disk work on another DVD-RAM drive? Don't test it on the drive it was created on (the player). Until you know if it's the drive, and not the disk (such as a session not being closed), it's hard to assist you.

    It was created on a home DVD RAM Recorder. I would like to play it on my computer. Is there any software to convert the format so it will play on my computer?

    The DVD0-RAM format is really no longer used. I doubt new drives can read those disks. You'd have to find one that specifically supports the DVD-RAM format. It's not the same as DVD-R/+R or DVD-RW/+RW.

    In the past only a few drives suported it. These days almost any drive does, including the OP's.
