You cannot if it is only a CD player. You'll have to install a DVD player or get an external one.

What he said! ^^^^^


You can get em cheap and they are easy to install


Check the drive first though in case there is a problem....if its DVD it will say DVD on it....


For the record I bought a good DVD rewriter for £15...10 min install :thumbsup:

You'll have to find out what DVD drive you'll need (sata/ide) and then install it differently depending which kind of drive you get, so if your not confident with doing that kind of stuff then it would be best to get an external drive (they just plug in the back of your computer) or get someone who knows what there doing to install an internal one for you. If you want to do it yourself theres loads of tutorials on the internet showing you how to install drives! Just do a google =]

Open PC, unclip existing drive...slide out....

Unplug leads...

Unscrew guides from old drive...

Screw into same place on new drive

plug leads into same places on new drive....

Slide in

Clip in

Restart

Course its easy but some people prefer not to open their case! I was just giving options ;) And I know it will most likey be IDE, but if someones made it for them it could well be a SATA equipped board! IDE you may need to set jumpers too

NA ITS EASY,ONCE YOU UNDO YOUR CASE YOU WILL SEE ITS EASY IF YOU CAN SETUP A FREEVIEW BOX TO A TV YOU CAN DO THIS

Personally if you don't know what your doing, either ask a friend to install one for you (I'm sure you'll be able to find someone who can do it) or external drive as ODB says =] theres loads of options when it comes to drives and we don't know what your set up is so no one can say its going to be completely easy for you or 1 set of instructions will apply to it.. as they wont!
