    Hello,
    I know this is a stupid question, but forgive my ignorance...
    I have a combo drive, and I know that I can't burn DVD's with it. BUT, can I copy a short movie dvd TO my computer with the combo drive?
    Thanks in anticipation...
    :eek:

    Sure, as long as you have space on your hard drive. You're only reading the disc, not writing one. You'll be able to open the DVD files from DVD Player once you've copied it over.
