Uses for a DVD and IEEE 1394
Posted on 2001-06-24
Hi. I have 2 questions.
1. Can I play ordinary CDs on a DVD drive on a laptop? Will it run my Red Alert etc games? I intend to get two drvies: a DVD AND a CD-RW. Can I play a data CD on the DVD and copy to the CD-RW?
2. What exactly is a IEEE 1394, and why might I need one? I've heard the term "Firewire", but have no idea what it's all about.
I am not a computer expert or anything (obviously), so please keep answer in ordinary layman's language.
Thanks very much in advance.
