A regular DVD player will not play HD DVD discs. You will need anHD DVD player to use these DVDs.
Backward compatibility will be available with all HD DVD players, allowing users to have a single player in their homes to play all types of HD DVD, DVD and CD discs. There is also a hybrid HD DVD format which contains both DVD and HD DVD versions of the same movie on a single disc, providing smooth…er transition for the studios in terms of publishing movies, and letting consumers with only DVD drives still use the discs. DVD disc replication companies can continue using their current production equipment with only minor alterations when changing over to the format of HD DVD replication. Due to the structure of the single-lens optical head, both red and blue laser diodes can be used in smaller, more compact HD DVD players.\n. \n(source in related links). ( Full Answer )
No, regular DVD players can not play HD DVDs. We need an HD DVD player. - Neeraj Sharma
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
No, it cannot. Regular DVD player uses a red laser to read disc, while HD DVD uses a blue laser, which is more precise. That's the reason HD DVD can store about 25gb of data. while DVD only around 9gb max. Blu Ray can store over 50gb.
According to bluray.com newer bluray systems will upscale your current DVD collection to 1080i. So not only will it play them but they will actually look better.
A Blu-ray combo DVD-RW BD-ROM can play CDs with no trouble. Thisfeature was introduced within the last couple of years.
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. ( Full Answer )
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.

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.

I have no technical knowledge,but my personal experience is no ! I bought a copy of 'Wall Street,money never sleeps' from my local supermarket on the 31st of January. The only DVD inside the box was a 'digital copy' which was supposed to'play anywhere.One of my DVD players just wouldn't play it,and …the picture kept freezing with another player.The only player that would play it was a pioneer model that I bought for playing some computer-type discs that I'd been having trouble playing.

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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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.
is there such a thing can convert car DVD player to blue ray dvd? if there is, i am glad to buy one.
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.

No, a blu ray disc needs a special laser within the player to read the information.
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
No. Blu-Rays will only work on Blu-Ray players and Blu-Ray players only work on HDTVs
Yes. It also acts to upconvert the image to near 1080p resolution (subject to the max resolution of your television)
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.
Most households that own a Bluray disc player normally have at least one DVD player elsewhere in the house. It is likely that publishers have decided that offering a DVD with each Bluray disc adds value to the buyer so that the same movie can be watched in the living room in HD and also perhaps in… a bedroom that doesn't have access to a Bluray player just yet. Profit on disc sales is linked far more to the number of sales than the cost of producing the discs themselves. A DVD costs almost nothing to manufacture so the additional cost of the product hardly changes. The increase in sales will certainly outweigh the increase in costs. ( Full Answer )
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.
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
Blu-Ray DVDs are for HD TVs and require a Blu-Ray player or a PS3. The sound is improved and the crispness of the picture (graphics) is noticeably improved.
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
No. All current 3D disc content is HD and so use Bluray discs. You have to have a 3D Bluray player.
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
Yes. All players are "backward compatible", so a 3D Blu-Ray player can play regular Blu-Ray, regular DVDs and even CDs.
A regular DVD cannot play blue ray movies. You have to purchase an actual blue ray player.
