What They Are Able To Play
The difference between CD and DVD Players, most DVD players are capable of playing any CD format. This enables you to use a single device for both audio and video (saving your money in the process). CD players, on the other hand, do not play DVDs. This is common because a CD player’s laser cannot read the data on a DVD. The data is compressed more tightly in order to fit more information onto the DVD. A DVD player has no trouble reading the data on a CD because the information is more spread out.
Video output is available on DVD players. The DVD player can now be connected to a television and the audio and video content play. A DVD player often has multiple video outputs, allowing you to use the best connection possible between the DVD player and your television. CD players only have an audio output, not a video output. Another reason why CD players are unable to play DVDs is due to this limitation.
There are two types of CD formats that are used in CD players: CD-R and CD-RW. A CD-RW can be recorded over, which is the only difference between the two. DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM are among the more than half-dozen different DVD formats available as of 2010. Although some older DVD players do not support all of the formats, most new DVD players are designed to support all of the DVD formats as well as the two-CD formats.
