DVD Burners

Hi everyone,

I thought this question would be best asked on the Newbie forum so you can all LOL.

Has there ever been or is there a software program anywhere that will read and/or burn DVDs’ via a normal CD-Rom Drive.

If not can someone explain to me why not?


Yeah, go on and laugh, I may as well be the brunt of someones jokes.


That software does not exist. Software claiming it can do that, is simply lying. Why a normal CD-ROM can never read nor writer a DVD disc is simply because its laser unit cannot follow the groove on the DVD disc. A DVD disc has a much higher density than a normal disc and it requires a different laser unit to be read. So it’s a hardware ‘problem’ and not in any way related to software.
