The Standard PS5 has a DVD drive and can play DVD movies. It can also play 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, and standard Blu-rays. The system can also play video from major streaming services, like Netflix and Spotify.

However, some DVDs are region locked and won’t play on a PS5 from another country or region. For this reason, it’s important to check the DVD movie’s region code to make sure that it matches your console’s.

To play a DVD on your PS5, first you need to turn on the console. Then, insert the DVD into the disc drive with the label facing the eject button, which is located on the left side of the disc drive. Then, select Media Gallery from the XMB menu and choose the DVD video. Finally, press the X button to play the DVD.

You can also use the PS5’s USB port to connect a hard drive and rip DVD movies to digital files. Then, you can stream the converted files to your console.

While some people may still have issues playing DVDs on their PS5, the good news is that most problems can be fixed. The solution to this is quite simple – just make sure that the DVD has a region code that matches your console’s. Also, you should avoid using unfinished DVDs as they can cause problems. Finally, you should make sure that your PlayStation 5 is not in the VR mode before trying to play a DVD.
