    hi guys
    i have heard that dvd's can be read from CD-RW but i don't know how?
    would please tell me that is it possible to access DVD's using CD-RW's by using any additional software or hardware(except DVD drive, ofcourse)?
    hoping for reply asap.

    Simple.Take a course in electronics.Learn how optical devices work.Open up your drive.Somehow change the wavelength of your laser and presto you have a DVD reading drive.No hardware required!!

    YEA YEA YEA!!!!! U want varun to kick hi a** around, go in for a degree course, etc etc!!
    never have i heard such a bigger piece of crap!

    Varun my friend, THERE IS NO WAY U CAN READ A DVD WITH A CD-RW!!! This is because the technology involved in both cases is totally different. I know there hv been rumours abt this - but those r JUST RUMOURS, ok?

    Invest some more bucks, n get urself a dvd drive, or a combo drive - quite cheaply available @ around Rs. 2500/-
