Using DVD Players with Windows

DVD is a major improvement to the multimedia and data storing capabilities of desktop PCs. DVD-ROM discs, which look identical to CD-ROM media, can hold up to 17GB of data—more than 30 times that stored on a CD-ROM disc. In addition, DVD-ROM provides vastly improved audio and visual quality (see Figure 20.7) from PC-based digital video.
