No. Not only is the data density on a DVD is much higher than on a CD, but there are multiple data surfaces on a DVD while there is only one data surface on a CD. Thus, there is no way to tweak a CD-RW to cope with a DVD.
Specifically: "The track pitch on a 3.95 GB DVD-R disc is 0.8 microns, one-half the track pitch of a CD-R. The track pitch on a 4.7 GB disc is 0.74 microns. Hardware changes in the recorders allow the creation of data marks approximately one-half the size of those made on CD-R media (0.40 microns versus 0.834 microns). The recording laser's wavelength and focusing lens' numerical aperture were changed. Because of this, a CD-R/CD-RW drive cannot be used to write DVD-R media. Additionally, DVD-R substrates are injection molded to one-half the thickness of a CD-R. Two DVD-R substrates are bonded together creating multiple recording surfaces."
The above comments are in relation to writing a DVD, but they apply to reading one too. Unfortunately bro you're going to need to buy a DVD player. If anyone has info to the contrary, please post it. -- J.W.
