    No, it will go the other way with a blu ray playing a DVD but a DVD cannot play a blu ray.  DVD does not have a laser with the wavelength required to read a blu ray.

    Technically there could be a disc produce that is double sided that has a regular DVD on one side and a blue ray on the other but I don't think this has ever been done.

    simply no , the player doesnt support the blueray standards unless it has a blueray marking on it , no marking then no blueray.

    A DVD player does not have the correct laser and sensor to read Blu-ray discs. It can only read DVD's and CD's.

    A Blu-ray player can read Blu-ray's, DVD's and CD's as it has the correct lasers and sensors to do so.

    CD players can only play CDs.

    DVD players can play DVDs and CDs.

    ONLY BluRay players can play BluRays, as well as playing DVDs and CDs.

    No, you can play DVD's in a Blu-Ray player but not the other way around.

    No it won’t, you need a blu ray player or a device capable of playing blu ray discs, most modern game systems work and I watch the discs on my PS4.
