Hi Matt, unfortunately a cd drive will only play cd's. To play dvd's you'd need 
a dvd drive. You can buy external ones, but would it not make more sense to 
replace your cd drive with a dvd drive, be it a reader or a writer, then you 
could use both cd's or dvd's.

  Subject: accessible dvd playing software

  Hi everyone. My computer doesn't have a built in dvd drive, but a dvd will 
fit in my cd rom drive. I was wondering if there is any accessible software 
that will allow me to play dvd's without having to purchase a whole dvd drive. 
If I do have to eventually purchase one, are there external USB b drives 
available? Any advice on this is appreciated. thanks.
