As far as I know you do not need a dvd-ram driver.
vista supports udf, just drag & drop
I did not install the driver for my dvd-ram and all is well
If you need to format/erase a disk, do it from the command prompt
Just type format /? for list of options
for instance
format d: /FS:UDF /Q
formats drive D: /file system udf 2.0 /quick format

Re: Pre Vista DVD RAM uninstall
I suspect that Windows would use a generic driver.
