If DVD-RAM in FAT3 get data corruption so often, more often than even DVD+RW and CD-RW media used with InCD, they should lower their advertising number from 100,000 to 10.
First of all DVD-RAM is the best marriage between CD technology and MO media.
Only a few media producers can even afford to produce the same and can afford the license due to slim to none tolerance to failure.
There is reason why this media has in short time become first backup media taking (due to more economical) and selling more them MO for this purpose. Military, hospitals, broadcast, all growing in using this media.
There is also reason for this strict standards that he is moving with recording speed very slowly compared to other formats. This is with MO most durable optical media in existence. (Since Worm,LD...)
Why mention all this? because this remarks about corruption are not media related.
This media is minimum 30 ready for every day heavy duty use.
Win 2000Pro has serious problems with DVD-RAM as LG?s DVD-RAM driver is not working good at all (to make it short) as much as I like W2 better, XP is smoother and far more reliable with the same.
You should not use LG driver under Win2, even LG mentions this.
I use for years DVD-RAM media for samplers and both Mac & PC, some are used nonstop, never had any error, ever!
Only nature of this "corruption" you mention is to blame Windows alone.
You have to understand that this is media meant for power users , 8-10%
of users in the world. That is why MS has not made this as priority in implementation.
Even Steve Jobs, refused (but he has other reasons) to support the same in present G5?s superdrive. So use it in XP or make it initialized with Nero without LG driver.
DVD-RAM is incomparable to other present mass produced DVD formats (+-) :
