How to Play a Blu-ray Disc on a DVD Player or PC DVD Drive?

Can I play a Blu-ray disk on a PC DVD drive? How can you play a Blu Ray DVD on a regular DVD player? Is there a way to make my DVD player play Blu-Ray discs? Can DVD Players Play Blu-ray Discs? Will my DVD drive play Blu Ray?…I have an atapi ihas224 b dvd drive, Can this play blu ray?

Blu-ray Disc drives/players can play Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs, and some can also play other types of discs, such as SACDs and DVD-Audio Discs. However, although you can play a DVD in a Blu-ray Disc drive/player, you can’t play a Blu-ray Disc in a DVD drive/player. Anyone that claims otherwise is misleading the consumer.


Because Blu-ray players and DVD players are using different wavelength for reading contents on each disc. To be specific, the DVD player uses a long wavelength laser while the Blu-ray player employs a shorter wavelength. Meantime, the Blu-ray discs need the special Blue laser to access the data. The normal DVD players only have the red laser which is what the DVD discs require to fetch the information. Check the physical analysis of three discs from CD, DVD to Blu-ray. You can see the red laser comes out like a light beam to reach the wider pits impressed on the DVD.


In other word, the Blu-ray disc has more video and audio information than a PC’s DVD player is designed to read.
