What You Will Find in a Standard DVD Upgrade Kit

When you purchase a CD-ROM drive, you get a drive and maybe a ribbon cable to attach the drive to your IDE or SCSI port. In a DVD upgrade kit, you will find a little bit more than just the DVD drive and a ribbon cable. In addition to the DVD drive, you will (should) also find what's called an MPEG-2 decoder card.

MPEG-2 is an international graphics standard established by the Motion Picture Entertainment Group (MPEG) for audio and video compression and playback.
