    Hi

    I have a Sony DVD-ROM (DDU1613) drive and was unsure whether or not it will support the higher sound quality DVD-Audio discs (I have an Audigy 2 ZS card with the latest surround speakers, so I quite keen to test it out!).

    Does anyone know if my DVD-ROM drive will support DVD-A discs?

    Thanks

    Matt

    Sad to see nobody helped you out...
    A DVD Audio can be played in any drive that can play DVD Videos.

    That's great - I'd heard many conflicting reports about different drives supporting different formats, so it's good to know I can go ahead with DVD-A!

    Thanks for your help!

    I think you might have to have certain software, but I am pretty sure all drives can.

    After some searching, I have found that in the past (2002), Sony's DVD drives can read DVD-A, so no worries. Pioneer has had some problems with it, however. I also read that a newer sound card can make almost every drive play DVD-A, such as Creative's Audigy series.

    I can play them on my Nec 2510A with Power DVD 6 Deluxe using the Onboard Sound but I ran it out to My Receiver and Bose 5.1 Setup until I got the Samsung 841D with Hi Def upconversion
    Sounds Great both ways
    :)

    I can't really list them all but I can tell you to probably go with a Philips, as they don't have a reason to only allow the SACD. I would also try talking to the people in your computer store. If anybody would know about the drives they sell, I hope it would be them.
    Let us know how that works out.
