Playing DVD's on Computer

Is it possible to play DVD’s in a CDR or CDRW drive? I tried a DVD in both drives and both act as if there’s nothing in the drive. I thought I would be able to play DVD’s because if I click on the drives and looka t their hardware properties both say that the type is “DVD/CD-ROM drive.”

Is there something that can be downloaded to make it work? or am I out of luck?

Thanks.

Nope.

Well DVD and CD lasers are totally different, so I would hazard a guess that the label DVD/CD drive by the PC is just a generic label.

Afraid you’ll have buy a DVD drive. Should cost about $40/$50 Or possibly even cheaper.
