For the users familiar with DVD-RAM, the GSA-4040B offers the convenience of staying with this format, or possibly using the GSA-4040B as a bridge between their old format and moving to one of the new DVD+R or DVD-R formats. Additionally, with the three format compatibility of the GSA-4040B, this is also the solution to prevent the possibility one of the DVD formats loses favor and eventually becomes obsolete. No matter what format, you'e covered.
