'CD' Player is a DVD player?

Has anyone else tried a DVD? I have the SE with the Sony head unit, "My Ford Sync" I think they call it The salesman told me that the CD player in my car is actually a DVD player and if in Park will play DVD movies.
I tried it and it didn't work. It takes in the DVD and spins for 15 seconds and then spits it back out with some sort of a read error message.
Audio CD's work fine.
, with NAV.
Thx,

Your salesman was misinformed.

I play DVD movies all the time in mine. However, it takes a portable DVD player hooked into the composite video/audio hookup (yellow, red, white) in the center console.
I haven't tried it but I suppose you could play movies off a SD card or USB drive, too.

This is kind of hijacking the thread...ought to be in another thread by itself....

When you play movies from SD card, USB or video input does it work while driving? I think I read some place you need some sort of switch to tell it to play while driving. Safety stuff..Thougths?
