aww i just got an email from the seller..
Hi, unfortunately the disc will not play on a dvd player. While it is a dvd
the information stored on it is not in the dvd format. Information on the disc
is in the form of .mpeg and .avi files, which, unless converted, will not play
on a dvd player. If i were to convert the files so that the disc would play
on dvd players, i would loose about 75% of the content because when they
they expand at least 10 times in size.
Most dvd players take both types of discs (im pretty sure of this anyway),
computers only take one or the other.
Since you don't have a dvd-rom drive, its pointless getting you to test which
drive you have.
