How to take a PC DVD Drive and make it a stand alone DVD player? Answered

Yes, I know I can use one of the many small form factor PC's out there...but what other ways can I use to achieve the goal of taking a pc based internal DVD Rom and getting it to work as a standalone dvd player.....


You need the decoding, so you're either looking at hacking another DVD player, or using a PC,
No easy way otherwise,


I think there are no other ways. AFAIK The DVD ROM drive itself doesn't perform the MPEG2 decoding, so you would need a PC. Cheers, Gzaloprgm
