DVD info/questions (also posted @ Video Cards)
I have a few questions about DVD(-ROM):
-Does the computer use the same protocol for communicating with the CD-ROM and the DVD-ROM? (ATAPI) (if yes, I guess linux will support any DVD drive?)
-Can a DVD data disc have a region?
-Can I rip any DVD (video disc) with any region on a region 2 player?
-Any good utilities for this on linux? (DVD -> mpeg)
-Any recommendations when I'm going to buy a DVD-ROM? (would be nice with TV-out, region free)
-Are all DVD-decoder cards (such as the one from creative) supported by linux?
-Will I need one on my k6-2 500?
