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.
