I'm planning to buy Toshiba SD-M1402 DVD-ROM for around $80.
When I took a look at the spec, it says "Use MI161for hardware DVD decoding", which I later found that it is "REALMAGIC HOLLYWOOD PLUS DVD DECODER" and it costs $65.
Do I need dvd hardware decoder with the dvd rom to play dvd movies?
I thought video card & dvd rom would play dvd movies.
I have Innovision Geforce 2 MX for video card.
Can someone help me on this?
