Yes, you can play normal DVD's on a Blu-Ray player, but it up-scale's them.
The answer to this is no. Blu-ray may only be played by Blu-ray players due to the fact that Blu-ray DVDs were made with blue and violet rays, hence the name blu-ray, and can …only read using those Blue and rays. Absolutely. All discs of every type can be read on all disc reading machines. In a short answer, No. Blu-Ray is a relatively new technology that compresses much more information (over 50GB, or gigabytes) onto a disc that is physically the same size as a standard DVD. In comparison, a DVD holds a little over 8 GB of data on a dual-layer disc. The difference is the density at which the information is recorded, and the number of layers used. A DVD player doesn't have the ability to focus on the different layers, and the information is encoded differently on Blu-Ray than it is on a DVD. No. Blu-Rays are not DVDs and they will only work on Blu-Ray players.
Yes DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player (and Blu-Rays are NOT DVDs)
No, there is a 2d DVD, with special features including unseen scenes on Earth as well as other extras It will be released on 3d blu-ray this November Edit: the studio has c…ommented that 3D is not currently in the pipeline http://gizmodo.com/5475243/avatar-coming-to-3d-blu+ray-this-november-updated-or-not
Sort of. The 3D is definitely not the one that requires red and blue cellophane glasses
It's been released recently
Yes. You can play blu-ray DVDs on a 3D blu-ray player.
Blu-Ray discs will only play on Blu-Ray players. But regular DVDs can be played on a Blu-Ray player due to the backwards compatibility feature
In DVD Players
Usually yes, not because "blu-ray" players are inherently capable of reading standard DVDs, but because the manufacturer has included standard DVD reading hardware in additio…n to the "blu-ray" hardware. The reason for this is the perception that most people would be much less interested in buying a blu-ray player if it would not be able to also play their existing DVD library, since they probably have a significant investment in that library and would not want to immediately throw it out and buy new blu-ray copies (assuming they were even available).
Yes, for DVDs can be played on ANY Blu-Ray player thanks to the backwards compatibility feature
Yes, all blu-ray players can play standard DVDs.
Yes. The only difference between a regular Blu-Ray and a 3D Blu-Ray is that the 3D Blu-Ray ALWAYS plays the movie in 3D
