    Funny Customer email
    As you know we do DVD learning courses. Our customer service department got this email the other day. It is now taped to the fridge in our lounge.

    Can I play the DVDs in my DVD player?

    Thanks

    Rick

    Oh lordy LOL!

    That is what someone here said. They just WANT to believe that. But I gotta figure that someone who has a blu-ray knows the difference. I sure hope so at least!

    Maybe they meant is it a computer (data) DVD or a play only (video) DVD? With all the software coming on DVDs now, they might confused.

    I think what the guy was wanting to know is if he can use his regular dvd player (the one normally used to play movies on) and not just the on the DVD drive of his computer. There are DVDs that can be played only on computer DVD drives, such as installer DVDs, for example.

    affilorama makes a good point as some DVDs can refuse to play on one or the other (computer or dvd player for tv). But it sounds kind of funny anyway as stated.

    Also, is it region-restricted?

    Most video DVDs have restrictions which hamper their use in different geographic regions.

    In this case he is in the U.S. but I do get that.

    I think some more information or additional clarification would have been handy.

    As it is, it's a pretty funny email and remains on the fridge here
