I've been searching the net for many months now looking for a DVD-ROM that will play DVD-A disks and have come up with nothing so I was wondering if any of you people know of any DVD-ROMs that will play DVD-A disks.
Ok sport it's like this. *ALL* DVD-ROM drives should
be able to read a DVD-Audio disc. There are exceptions like this piece of crap Pioneer 106S drive which woudn't cooperate. However every other damn DVD-ROM drive works fine like the Sony DVD-ROM at work. Also if you have a DVD burner it's almost a LOCK that it will play it. I've had perfect success with a TDK indiDVD burner, a Pioneer A05 burner, and of course that plain jane Sony DVD-ROM drive. If the drive can read DVD-Video it can read DVD-Audio. Same standard. Just now that AUDIO_TS folder actually has something in it! YAY!
For the n00bs in the forum I use WinDVD 6 + M-Audio Revolution 7.1 to playback DVD-Audio discs. Works like a charm. Even WinDVD 5.3 can playback DVD-Audio. PowerDVD can playback any DTS & Dolby Digital portions of a DVD-Audio disc. But to playback the *true* 24/96 stuff you'll need WinDVD or the Audigy2 software. Not to mention a Sound Card that can actually pump out 24/96 sound.
Class is dismissed.
