No it is not possible. The TV does not have any controllers that you can connect the DVD drive to the TV and it does not have any software to play DVD disks.

I want to put in an additional dvd-rom drive in my desktop in the expansion slot. Do I need software for this. I have a Phillips dvd-rom drive from my old desktop..year 2005? thanks


Hi:
You might be able to do this, but need to do a little detective work first.
You need to power down your desktop, and take off the side cover. You need to find out if there is a motherboard connection available to connect your old dvd rom to. Most older DVD drives are IDE, meaning they connected with the flat, ribbon cable. Some newer computers only use SATA drives, and don't have any spare IDE ribbon connections open. Other considerations are the physical mounting of the DVD drive in your desktop. some computers , such as Gateway and Emachines have curved fronts that make it tougher to install a standard, flat faced drive, and secure them, without modifying the case, so try to check all of these things out first~!

Dell XPS 410 DVD rom will read cds but not dvds


Try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver for the DVD rom. Also, make sure you have a DVD application software that you can use to play those DVDs; like Realplayer.

This is a sure sign that the drive is faulty or the ide connection. Try a different ide connector from the other ide cable in your computer if you are able.
