    A DVD-R can only be read from an DVD-Rom or a DVD-Writer... i.e. it needs special hardware, and the usual PC CD-ROM Drive wont read it...no matter how updated the system driver is!

    So, you either need to buy a DVD-Combo Drive, or a DVD-Writer to began reading DVD's..
    One major reason for this is the DVD-Region Lock in the hardware of the DVD-Rom Drive, which take cares of playing DVD's only pertaining to your region/sub-continent reducing piracy! This lock is absent in normal CD-Rom Drives..

    Dude one suggestion if u r going for a DVD drive now... Dont get a DVD-ROM, get a DVD writer, the advantage u have is u can also write (record DVD disk , with ur data like songs, videos or anything) , and its pretty cheap also now a days ... U will get a good DVD writer in somewhere around Rs 3600 to 3900 Dont go for combo drives either (combo drive will allow u to play CD, DVD and write CD's but u cant write DVD).
