DVD-RAM does not need to be burned like a regular CD. Once it is mounted it acts like a slow HDD. I did some reading and think that CRON would be my best bet, I just have to figure out how to use it. I am guessing what I need is something like this...
Mount the drive
CP the directory with auto overwrite switches to the mounted DVD-RAM
Unmount the drive
Would something like this work?
