Two topics, "DVD Mp3 players?" and DVD Laser purchasing

I didn't think it'd be wise to annoy everyone by creating two new topics at once, so I'll ask them both here.

First, are there any portable cd-mp3 players from trusted well-known companies that are compatible with mp3-filled dvd-r's, but don't have video support (or just don't have screens)?

Second, for a friend (yes, he's big into custom circuitboards and etc...) is it possible to obtain the DVD laser component(s) without buying a full dvd player?

My Philips DIVX DVD player plays DVD-R filled with MP3s. And if I google I find DVD parts such as http://www.richspsxparts.com/samsunglas.html With some bazillion players it's unlikely this is what they are looking for, but we do have google.com

That kind of thing is exactly what my friend was looking for.
But for my first question, I'd rather not get a full-fledged portable DVD player, I don't need that. I'd rather not pay extra for the video screen and all other related parts. More features = more things to go wrong.

Then is what you are looking for made?

Wallymart had the Philips for 65 bucks. It seems cheap after I plugged in some speakers for some player to play a 4.7GB DVD of media.

We still have google and such to hunt down what you are looking for. But I wonder if price will become a factor.

Oh really...?

I didn't realize you could get portable dvd players for under $75. In that case, I might look at them too. I was searching google, found a lot of people searching for similar things, but very few real (other than dvd players) results, two in fact. Thanks, you've been a great help.

Just curious, any idea when portable blu-rays will be available? 2008, 2009? I've looked around but havn't found anything projecting that far yet.
