    A DVD drive can play DVDs/CDs. A DVD-Recorder can play and record DVDs/DVD±Rs/CDs.

    If you could play DVDs on CD drives, we wouldn't need DVD drives, would we?

    edit: spelling
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Some people believe a DVD-ROM is the same as a DVD-recorder. They are not! DVD-ROMs cost about $30.00 while DVD-recorders start around $100.00. His question refers to a DVD-recorder ("DVDr"), which is not exclusively required to just play a movie. I hate to see him pay too much just to watch a movie. In any event, he still needs a DVD-ROM or a DVD-recorder to play the movie.

    I think if he can spare the cash it would be better to buy a dvd writer(recorder). He&#39;ll be able to copy DVD movies

    EDIT: and save money on buying dvd&#39;s. Just rent and copy them instead

    Definetly youllwant it later

    If you rip the .vob files from the dvd thru someoneelses pc
    and then via LAN or network send them to your pc
    and then have dvd playing software (powerdvd)

    then
    and
    only then
    can you watch a dvd without a dvd player

    oops: . All these forums are ususally just full of us guys , so we automatically think everyone here is a guy .

    A dvd writer is a better choice as the prices are quite low nowadays.

    You can also copy the ripped movie (for a friend&#39;s pc) onto a external hard drive and transfer it to your pc.
