Hypothetical: I have a DVD player, for TV, and I was wondering if there was any way to connect it to my computer. Any cords, anything? Do I need extra softeware to watch DVDs on my computer? It's an older Compaq, from about 1998. Am I stuck just using my television? Where can I buy any of this stuff?

Previous comments aside,

You will need to install a DVD Rom to your Compaq in order to watch on the screen of your PC. All software will come with the DVD Rom.
