    Hi all. I just aquired a Panasonic Toughbook model cf-37. It is older but the price was right (free) so I jumped on it. It has a DVD drive on it and I am unsure how to use it. the DVD is model # cf-vdd372.

    The manual was talking about requiring some kind of card to play dvds? I am totally stupid when it comes to things like this, so if anyone would, please walk me through getting this thing hooked up.

    Thanks.

    Can you clarify exactly what type of card your manual speaks of - this is not normally the case.
    Have you tried watching a DVD on it yet? I'm assuming that the previous owner plugged the drive in and used it at some point? Generally, if a computer comes with a DVD Rom drive then it generally has some software enabling the viewing of DVD's.
    The drive should work anyway with DVD's that have content other than DVD video, (data, pics, music etc. - DVD's aren't only about films) But to watch DVD films then you would normally require some software to view them with or a standalone codec (another type of software) to enable already installed media players (windows media player for example) to play the films.
    Try a DVD Film - what happens if anything?
