What is the difference of DVD-RAM and DVD-ROM?

I encountered a problem when I installed a game (COD4-Modern Warfare). I ran the set-up and copied what must be copied. And everthing seemed ok. After the installation wizard finished, I was excited to play the game. To my suprise, as entered to the game, there was an error saying "Please insert the right DVD-ROM. and Click ok and restart application". I can't understand what is happening. I have only DVD RAM Drive but i dont think it should matter. AS I checked the System Requirements of the game, there is no telling as to whatever DVD RAM or DVD ROM. I am pretty much sure that I had the Systems better from the minimum requirements particularly VGA,OS and everthing. The game runs only for the Multiplayer but when I play the singleplayer, the error starts to destruct my day. huhuhu help T_T T_T T_T

The program is looking for some code that should be on your computer but was not installed for some reason. You should uninstall the program and re-install it to see if that solves the problem. If you're still getting the error there's not much that you can do.

I did that so many times. But still the problem is persistent. I think I should see the store attendant who sold me the installer. by the way, thanks. ^_^
