Specs: Windows XP
Hi i have a question...I would like to install the
windows 7 & i have a bootable DVD but the
problem is i have only CD R/W no functionality
for DVD R/W. Is there any way where some
software take the resource of dvd as a cd
content...

As per i think its just the storage capacity that
increases in DVD over CD ... Is there any
other difference which categories or restricts
the DVD to read as a CD?

You can read a CD in a DVD drive but you cannot read a DVD in a CD drive.

It is the storage difference that makes all the difference. Becasue there is more data on a DVD drive, the tracks are a lot closer together and the data is more closely packed. To read this data a different kind of laser is required, a finer more precise and a higher frequency laser. Consequently a CD laser will not do anything to a DVD disk, it is far to course.

No amount of software is going to change what is in fact a physical limitation.

Thats a good point. If your computer didn't come with a DVD drive it is very unlikely it will be sufficient to run Windows 7. DVDs have been standard for a long time now.
