    Does anone know? Because I have alot of DVD's, and I know that eventually, you won't be able to by a normal DVD player or DVD's, only HD and blu rays, so then my DVD's are worth nothing if I can't watch them, but will the new players be able to read normal DVD's?

    Great, but for how long, will they discontinue that ability to read normal DVD's after a while. If that's true, then i'm gonna need to burn all my DVD's to blu rays/HD's

    I can't tell you the future but I can be logical. With that said, when did DVD players stop supporting audio CDs, VCDs, and SVCDs? Are DVD-VHS combos hard to find?

    But when the blu rays become cheaper, is it best to put all my DVD's onto blu rays?

    What are you asking? If the conditions are right for you then of course it would be a good idea to use BD. Two layer Blu ray discs offers 6x the space of current DVD-9 discs. But if Blu ray looks like its going to flop after a few years then I don't think it would be a good idea.

    Like I said I can't see into the future.

    Actually every single analyst predicts a pretty close race for one or two years before Bluray wins out.
