Can a DVD Recorder & Player be connected to a computer? My husband bought one and wants to burn DVDs of files on his computer.

Hi there

The chances are you would be able to connect an internal DVD-RW drive to the computer. This will allow you to play DVDs & record to blank DVD discs.

To be certain though, I would need to know the basic specs of the computer. e.g the processor (Pentium 3, pentium 4, Athlon etc) would be a good start.
You will also need a spare 5.25 inch bay in the computer case. You will almost certainly have a CDROM drive in the system already, right? If so, see if there are any removable plastic panel directly above or below this drive. If so, then you have room for the DVDRW drive. If not, then you would need to remove the CD drive & replace it with a DVDRW instead.
