I there a way to play a cd on a CD-rom drive, and listen to it without the support of the computer? Answered

 And if if an be possible, is there a way to monitor and control it VIA micro-controller or analog switches?
also the same question for a DVD-rom drive


Does the drive play audio-CDs without software? Otherwise, you would have to get a CD player that does.
DVD - no way. DVD decoding requires a lot of processing, building the support for it is not something you'd want to even try.
