Can regular DVD be played in blu ray player?

Yes they most certainly do! (At least most commercial Blu-Ray players have no difficulty playing commercial DVD material) However, if you have burned your own files onto a DVD then you may not be able to play the files on a given Blu-ray player depending on file format, codecs etc. Yes
All Blu-Ray players feature backward compatibility with DVD's,which means that you can play a standard DVD in a Blu-Ray player. However, the reverse is not true. You cannot play a Blu-ray disc ina standard DVD player.
The answer to this is no. Blu-ray may only be played by Blu-ray players due to the fact that Blu-ray DVDs were made with blue and violet rays, hence the name blu-ray, and can only read using those Blue and rays. Absolutely. All discs of every type can be read on all disc reading machines. In a short… answer, No. Blu-Ray is a relatively new technology that compresses much more information (over 50GB, or gigabytes) onto a disc that is physically the same size as a standard DVD. In comparison, a DVD holds a little over 8 GB of data on a dual-layer disc. The difference is the density at which the information is recorded, and the number of layers used. A DVD player doesn't have the ability to focus on the different layers, and the information is encoded differently on Blu-Ray than it is on a DVD. No. Blu-Rays are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. (MORE)
The main difference is the color of the laser used. Regular DVD players have used the traditional red laser, whereas the new Blu-Ray DVD players use an innovative blue laser. So what's the big deal? The primary difference is that blue light has a shorter wavelength than red light and thus allows …the capability of faster speeds, more data storage, advances in miniaturization, and improved efficiency overall, among others.\n. \nThe blue laser light is emitted by GaN semiconductors, which are very expensive to produce and extremely rare.\n. \nThe first blue laser was produced by Dr. Shuji Nakamura in late 1999 in Nichia Chemical Corporation Laboratories.\n. \n_________________________________________________________________________________________\nPicture resolution. A regular DVD player in the U.S. is what's called an NTSC player and has 525 lines of resolution. The HD DVD has 700 to 1080 lines of resolution, depending on the way the disk was burned. (MORE)

What is the difference of a DVD movie that is a Blu-ray or the regular DVD tht is not a Blu-ray and do each of them play on a regular DVD player?
Blu-ray has finally won the high definition format war, but that is just the beginning. There is a lot of confusion out there among the general public about the difference between DVD and Blu-ray discs. Although Blu-ray discs look exactly the same as DVDs in size and shape there are many differences… between the media, including storage capacity, laser technology, disc construction, image resolution and player compatibility. Storage Capacity Storage capacity is measured in gigabytes (GB), like computers and iPods. The more GB the disc has more information it can hold. . DVD- Single layer DVDs can store about 4.7 GB of data, which is about two hours worth of movie. These are commonly referred to as DVD-5s. Double layer DVDs, or DVD-9s, can store twice the amount of data at 8.7 GB. This equals about four hours of movie, or one "Lord of the Rings" movie. . Blu-ray- Single layer Blu-ray discs store approximately 25 GB of data, this equals about two hours of high definition information or 13 hours of standard definition information. Double layer Blu-ray discs can hold about 50 GB equaling about four and a half hours of high definition information or 26 hours in standard definition. Potentially you could put all three "Lord of the Rings" movies on one double layer Blu-ray disc. . Justuffxpress.com offers DVDs at Great Deals plus free USA shipping.

Sorry, but no. Not unless the HD-DVD player has a Blu-Ray logo on it. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are different competing formats, like VHS and Betamax. Unfortunately, it looks like the HD-DVD format is going the way of Betamax -- WalMart recently announced that they will no longer carry HD-DVD.
no. high definition (HD) DVDs are not playable on regular or blue ray DVD players, due to the fact that HD DVDs are designed differently. therefore, they need to be played on a HD DVD compatible player. however, there are some brands of HD DVD players that will allow standard DVDs to be played, whic…h means that you will experience HD- like playback. it is my understanding that these players are known as up converting DVD players. finally, it is my understanding that you can only play blue ray discs on a blue ray DVD player.

No. Blu-Ray discs are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players. But there are portable Blu-Ray players
BluRay discs carry high definition television and therefore store data in a high density format. A standard definition DVD player will not recognise a BluRay disc and will simply report an error if one is loaded.\n. \nOn the other hand, a BluRay player will not only play BluRay discs but will also… handle standard DVDs. Most will also recognise and play CD format discs. Most Bluray players will also down convert the HD signal from a BluRay disc so that it can be viewed on a standard definition television. In this case, of course, the image quality will be the same as any other standard definition signal. To benefit from the high definition signal, an HD television is also required. (MORE)
No. A blue ray disc has a blueray laser to read the HD disc. Also a blueray player needs a spinning reader to read the blueray disc. The spinning reader is also what is used to read DVD's and therefore will read DVD's. A DVD player does not need a blueray laser because the disc can be read without o…ne. If you want a movie in HD but you don't want to buy a whole new player, you can buy a HDVD (HD DVD).A normal DVD player will read that. (MORE)
No, you need a BlueRay player, or an XBox 360 - it has one built in.
There have been just one or two high definition DVD players capable of playing HD DVD and Bluray discs. If you have one, it will make it very obvious on the front panel that it will play both. It is unlikely that you own one of these, so the HD DVD player in question almost certainly plays HD DVDs a…nd not Bluray. It will also play standard definition DVDs as well of course but if the movie is on Bluray, you're out of luck. . For clarity, HD DVD was the competitor to Bluray in the high definition disc war that ended in 2008. Both formats were capable of replaying high definition video and both were compatible with standard definition DVDs. Bluray was the victor in the war and the fatally wounded HD DVD players were withdrawn from the shelves quietly and without fuss. They were sold at 90% discounts in outlet stores. Sadly, those people who were tempted to buy one have since found that their collection of 4 HD DVD movies is never to be expanded. . Quick follow up to this post. There are a huge amount of HD DVD movies to be found at Amazon.com I was there last week looking for some new BlueRay movies and found a ton of HD DVD movies.

You can watch your dvd in your blu-ray player, but you can't watch blu-ray in your dvd player... sent by Macymouse Yes they can, they convert it to HD on the screen
Cause DVDs and Blu-Ray discs are different formats and they each a different laser to read the disc. But the lasers in Blu-Ray players can also read DVDs.
Yes, but you can't play a blue ray disk in a regular DVD player. It won't look much improved if the television is bad.
It truly depends on the BRDVD player in question. Blue-Ray and DVD use different light wavelength for their lasers, and are not directly compatible (DVD and HD-DVD are). There are a few "dual-head" players that provide two laser sources, and hence can play both Blue-Ray and DVD/HDDVD discs. But, lik…e I said, it depends on the player if it supports that functionality. It isn't that uncommon, though. On the PC market for example, 'combo' devices that combine DVD-burning abilities with Blu-Ray playback have existed for some time. (MORE)
No. Blu-Ray discs will only work on Blu-Ray players. But DVDs can play on Blu-Ray players due to the backwards compatibility enabled
It sounds like your player may be having some issues. Try these steps to fix it: 1. Unplug your Blu-ray player for 5 minutes, then plug it back in and try again. 2. Call the manufacturer of the player to ensure you have the latest updates. 3. Call the manufacturer of the player for service.
NO, buy a blu ray player to play blu ray discs. No, it will not.
Bluray players are backwards compatible so they will play standard DVDs as well as Bluray discs. Note that although the DVD is being played by a Bluray player, it does not make it HD quality. Some bluray players will up-convert the standard definition image from 480 or 576 lines up to 1080 lines bu…t although the format is HD, the image quality still remains standard definition. (MORE)
No. DVD supports standard definition video only. Playing them on Bluray players does not make them HD quality. Even a player that up-scales the video to an HD output format does not improve the quality, merely changes the output signal from a native format to a modified format.
No, a blu ray disc needs a special laser within the player to read the information.
I play my mine on the PS3 slim 120 GB game console's Blu ray and they work fine and are upscaled to near HD quality
Either the Blu-Ray player needs an update or needs to be looked at for technical difficulties
no you need a blue ray player or play station 3 with has the blue ray laser in
Can you burn blu ray torrent movies to a regular not blu ray dual layer DVD and watch it on a blu ray player?
If you just want burn downloaded blu ray movies to a DVD disc as data DVD without convert, you can keep the blu ray video quality, but you can't play the burned data DVD on DVD player, only play it on computer. Or if you want to play the burned DVD on regular DVD player, you have to convert and b…urn your downloaded blu ray movies to a standard video DVD that can be played well on regular DVD player, but standard video DVD only support 720x480(ntsc) or 720x576(pal) video resolution highest, don't support higher video resolution, so when convert downloaded blu ray movies to standard video DVD, right software will reduce the video resolution to fit the standard video DVD, but if your DVD player supports divx or xvid, you can convert your downloaded blu ray movies to HD divx or xvid avi files and burn onto a DVD, then play on your divx or xvid DVD player without losing quality. You can try RZ DVD Creator or Nero, it can convert and burn downloaded blu ray movies to standard video DVD that can be played well on regular DVD player, and it also can convert downloaded blu ray movies to HD divx or xvid avi files and burn to DVD that can be played well on Divx or Xvid DVD player. You can yahoo or Google search RZ DVD Creator or Nero and download it, easy to use, hope it can help you.You should be able to get the software necessary from torrents also. (MORE)
DVD players cannot play Bluray discs. The lasers and the data storage are different so no data can be read from a Bluray disc in a DVD drive. That is the case whether or not there is any up-scaling available in the player. Bluray players on the other hand are quite happy to play DVDs as well as Blu…ray discs. (MORE)
No. Blu-Rays will only work on Blu-Ray players and Blu-Ray players only work on HDTVs
Yes, but only for the models manufactured in or after 2008. Anything before 2008 won't.
No, they are written with different light which means that a DVD player cannot read blu-ray, however, a blu-ray player can read DVD's.
Yes. It also acts to upconvert the image to near 1080p resolution (subject to the max resolution of your television)
No, realplayer will only play CD and DVDs from your region. Youwill need to install a Blu-ray drive, a Blu-ray Player and an HDmonitor on you PC in order to watch Blu-ray movies in their fullglory. There are free Blu-ray players available to download fromthe Internet.
No. But DVDs can be played by a Blu-Ray player thanks to its backwards compatibility feature
Yes, you can. Generally, Blu-rayPLayer could support DVD, BUT Dvd player couldn't support Blu-rayPlayer. Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player which is a good example.
No. Blu-Ray discs will only work in a Blu-Ray player. But DVDs can play in a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Rays are far more advanced in technology than DVDs and DVD players don't have the right type of laser to read Blu-Rays.
No, a Blue Ray player gives you a more high quality picture and sound than a normal DVD player. Although, you can't use a normal DVD on a Blue Ray player you have to buy the DVD's that say Blue Ray on them.
When Blu Ray first came out, most people would say that Sony delivered a better system for playing them than most other manufactures, but today the playing field has leveled.
Generally, yes. A BD player is "backwards compatible", meaningthat, in addition to Blu-ray disks, it will play regular DVDs andaudio CDs.
Blu-Ray discs DO NOT play on DVD players. They will only play on Blu-Ray players
No. They will only play on Blu-Ray players, blu-ray enabled laptops, blu-ray enabled PC's and Playstation 3's
It is quite likely that the Bluray player is faulty. A badly aligned laser may still be able to read the larger DVD tracks but not the much finer tracks on a Bluray disc. Try some different Bluray discs. If none of them work, it might be time to get the player repaired or replaced.
Blu-Ray discs will only play on Blu-Ray players. But regular DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player due to the backwards compatibility feature
Yes, for DVDs can be played on ANY Blu-Ray player thanks to the backwards compatibility feature
No. Blu-Ray discs will only work on Blu-Ray players, but DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player thanks to the backwards compatibility feature
Yes. The only difference between a regular Blu-Ray and a 3D Blu-Ray is that the 3D Blu-Ray ALWAYS plays the movie in 3D
A DVD player cannot play a BluRay disc. A BluRay player can play both BluRay discs and DVDs.
Yes due to the backwards compatibility installed in every Blu-Ray player and PlayStation 3 (which also uses the Blu-Ray disc format)
No, you can't play blu-ray discs on a DVD player. You can however play DVDs with a blu-ray player.
No. Blu-Rays will only work on a Blu-Ray player, but they can play DVDs as well
