I have an HP Spectre laptop running W 8.1 - it doesn't have a CD/DVD player - I have some DVDs I would like to watch on this laptop - suggestions for the best hardware please? TIA Bryden

An external DVD drive would be the way to go. Just make sure you have the software too ;)

VLC will play DVDs for free

This (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html) but if its a dvd you'll still need a dvd player to play it

Potplayer (http://potplayer.daum.net/) will probably play it as well

I bought a Remote DVD player for USB connection to laptop.

Caution. Initially I bought a cable with only 1 USB Input connection. That did not work properly- underpowered..
I then exchanged it for a cable with 2 USB input connections and that worked fine.
