does anyone know how play a CD rom in a floppy drive
buddy u can't play a DVD in a CD rom.....
..:: peace ::..
*Analogylaying Casettes on a CD player*
If it was possible that DVD's can be Played on a CD-ROM then there
would have been absolutely no need for separate DVD players.......J/k
On a More serious note,DVD's can't be played on a CD player.There is no such software also and even if software were to be made,it would'nt work because the "Reading" mechanism of both are different....I Hope I'm right
May be what you have here is technically wrong..but still i like his imagination...He is very imaginative and Ambitious in like..
Seriously do tell us what more are you ambitions regarding CPU ..
Peace have fun
I donno if this works but I got a mail once.
Modify Your CD-ROM to Watch DVD Movies
There are two types of CD-ROM drives we can mod:
24x to 40x
40x or higher
Drives slower than 24x are too old to be modded.
24x to 40x CD ROMs
Laser Head Adjustments:
The track pitch of CDs is 1.6 microns, and the track pitch of DVDs is only 0.8 microns. The minimum length of track pits of CDs is 0.843mm, and the minimum length of track pits of DVDs is 0.293mm. That's why DVD discs can store much more data in the size of a CD.
Pinpointing this situation, we need to adjust the laser head so it can read discs with smaller track pitchs and shorter track pits. Open up the CD-ROM drive, do you see a lens on the rail? That's the laser head. On the side of the laser head, there's a screw you can adjust.
This is the key of this mod.
This screw can adjust the size of the laser beam that lands on the disc. Referring to the above, after adjusting, the laser beam should be less than 0.293mm, to suit the needs of DVD discs. So turn that screw 2-3 times. I got this number through trial and error. Mark with a pencil, in case you forget how many times you turned that screw.
DVD-ROM drives can play DVD movies smoothly at 4x speed. If we're modding a 32x CD-ROM drive, the rotation speed is obviously too high, increasing heat, and shortening the life of the drive.
So we need to decrease the speed of it.
Most people know that power supplies can provide 5V (red wire) and 12V (yellow wire) electricity output for Molex connectors. Find the Molex connector you'll plug into the modded CD-ROM drive, cut the yellow wire or insulate it with tape, so only 5V of electricity is transferred to the CD-ROM drive. The speed of the drive is now 32 * 5/17 = 9.41x and can now fulfill our requirements.
40x or higher CD ROMs
When 40x CD-ROM drives are released, most manufacturers are already producing DVD-ROM drives. To lower cost, they use the same core as DVD-ROM drives with DVD functions disabled. What we need to do here is to re-enable the DVD function.
Open up the CD-ROM, behind the circuit board, look for a jumper that says DVD JUMP. Find a jumper to connect this jumper. Thin metal wire also works fine.
OK, so the DVD function is unlocked, but we still need to decrease the speed. Use the instructions above on how to decrase the speed of the drive.
Modded drives cannot be detected in POST, that means you cannot use it in DOS. But once you get into Windows, the drive works fine.
Modded drives have no region code problems.
Modded drives MIGHT NOT read DVD9 discs, that's why I said you can watch most retail DVDs in the beginning
LOL...You can't play DVD's in a CD-ROM drive.
I remember the discussion on copying DVD with CD-R software!
You may want to see this:
how much times ,has this topic, been discussed....
why dont u all search b4 posting?
I heard that you get these small chipsets + dvd lense from china , al you need is to take out the existing card of your cd player and put this one in with the existing lens??? and voila....................everything works.........
Someone try it out.
Will it work?
a DVD rom drives costs 1400 !!
a CDRW DVD Combo costs somewhere around 2500-2900 !!
a DVD RW costs around 5300 !!
why on the gods green earth would any body want to WASTE their time screwing the CDROM drive
or even order CRAP from china and AGAIN screw their CDROM drive ?
This is a SPAM ! I mean u might have received this prduct through ur yahoo spam mail or u cud have seen this stuff somehwre and which never works !
quite right my dear friend but then the person who started this thread might have thought he could do it free......... .............He might be thinking that it is more of a software thing than a hardware one.........
what the hell is wrong with ya'll
dadhwal what kinda posts are u makin ?
i have 2 things for u
the rest of u guys STOP ENCOURAGIN this
ARRGHHH !!mods !!
HEY RAM !!!
i think thats y they called it a MOD . modding can be really fun . i just hide my cdrom drive , process called stealthing it . just check out funkymonkeys mod on his MONSTER computer . he could have just left his pc standing there like a dull beige box . but he let his ideas flow . and it created magic and made him learn a lot in the process . creativity is good .
it would be gr8 if someone tried out what sr_ultimate suggested . or our ECE friends here could clarify if its true .
Nice picture. i have copied it for use(will try to remove your copywrite...sorry ), very orignal.
Ok Well Now "This Is not Mission Difficult MR.Hunt This Is Mission Impossible".......And now The Thread Will BE Locked In 5 Seconds (MOds Plzz do lock it ok )
one day, that day will come
Which day.....when DVD"s can be played in CD Roms or the day when the mods will lock this thread
heheehe.........ever tried cooking tandoori chicken in a toaster?
yup . add all the masalas first , then wrap it with aluminium foil and place it in the toaster . 2 types of toasters too . one for bread , other for sandwichs . works for both . b4 saying this is out of topic . ITS TECHNOLOGY . dig should review tech in kitchen next
