    Can anyone tell me if the newer DVD players will play CD ROMs?

    If so how do you get one to play on a Toshiba 330?

    Er, CD-ROM? You mean CD with PC code on them? No, they won't.

    Just wondering since they play Jpeg and other stuff connected with the PC.
    Mmmmm it thought there was a way to encode film snippets on a CD so they would play as a film VCD??????

    Depends on the DVD player. Some will play VCD, some will also play SVCD. Some will play MPEG and AVI clips recorded raw onto the CD. Others won't.

    What I meant in my reply is that you couldn't go to GAME and buy, say, a copy of Medal of Honor and expect it to work on your DVD player!! :)

    :) Is that a Playstation, X-Box or PC DVD player?


    Or do you mean the video footage?
