DVD drives are devices that can playback DVDs (digital video discs). The majority of DVD drives can play DVD movies as well as audio CDs. Most DVD drives can also read from DVD-ROMs and CD-ROMs, which makes them a good replacement for CD drives.

All About DVD Drives

Many DVD drives offer users the ability to both play and burn DVDs. This is a huge advantage since DVDs hold up to 17GB of information. With that amount of space available, you can efficiently back up the contents of your entire hard drive! In addition, you will be able to store movies, MPEG files, MP3 music files, and large applications as well.

Internal DVD drives are usually less expensive than their external counterparts and are generally considered more reliable when it comes to burning DVDs. Although the thought of installing an internal DVD may be intimidating, installation is actually fairly easy. Alternatively, you can pay a computer technician to install the drive for you if the process seems too challenging.

External DVD drives are very popular for use with notebook computers because of their portability. They are also a bit more user friendly for those who are frightened by the thought of installing an internal drive. Read online reviews and ask for recommendations before you buy, to ensure you get a DVD drive that will suit your needs.
