when my dvd player goes on the blink i will rip it appart and see if i can install dvd player from a pc as i have some lying arround.
I don't know if this is true or not but i was told that if you buy a cheap dvd player from the likes of Tesco it will play any cd/dvd, you make on your computer. but if you buy a well known one like Sony or Panasonic they won't play cd that you make on a computer because the also make the music/film cd.s/dvd's
that sounds stupid don't it.
p.s. my ones from Tesco and it plays everthing.
