    I'm at work right now and I'm curious to know if there is any software that will enable the CD-ROM drive in a computer to play back a DVD movie. The guy in the next cube asked me this question. I didn't know the answer, but told him that one of you might.

    Thanks!

    No. The laser pickup is different in a DVD-rom than a CD-rom. BTW, I didn't check, but this might be mentioned in the Computer & HTPC Area.

    Thanks, Kyle. I figured that would be the case. However, I'll pop on over to the computer area and double-check.
