Samsung dvd-rom 616E won't play sounds

My samsung dvd plays the video but there is no sound.
I updated my Windows Media player to version 11, still no sound. Tried to download Samsung drivers for the DVD but can't find any.
There is nothing wrong with the sound card, device manager says it is working but there is no sound when I play a dvd.

I decided to check to see which video player programs were already on my computer. I have a Dell, so there were several that came preinstalled.
Did I mention that Windows Update had installed several new fixes recently?
My toolbar no longer worked like it did last week, that was a clue.
2 of my programs were no longer in the programs list, Interplayer and Power DVD were missing.
I went to the Power DVD site and downloaded the latest update.
Now my DVD player works fine.
I don't know why RealPlayer or Media Player didn't work, even with the updates.
I don't care, as long as something works.
I could have tried Winamp too but Power DVD worked and I didn't try anything else after that.
It doesn't have to be a problem with the hardware, but could be the software.

I have a dell inspiron 6400 and my dvds wont play sound


Could be a couple of things, check your sound devices in the control panel, make sure your disk drive is included and volume at a good level.

If its all set properly, it could be your media player needs its codecs updating. Or you could go to filehippo.com, download and install VLC media player. Its a brilliant programme and a lot less cumbersome than the windows version.

Windows and Media Player do not come with dvd playback functions by default. You will either have to purchase dvd software or you can also download Video Lan Client "VLC" to support playback. VLC is a free download.

Unable to read some of the DVDs......


It's possible that the drive has died. CD and DVD drives are notorious for short lives but then I've seen some last 5 years. The lens could be dirty, just a small piece of lint is enough to cause hassles. Try using a Lens cleaner, available from all good audio shops. Some machines don't like +R disks and a firmware upgrade is needed. I've done many Liteon Drives with terrific results but if the manufacturer hasn't put one out then you're lost. It's possible you've used the wrong upgrade to fix your problem. With the prices of drives today it's sometimes cheaper to replace it. Believe me they can die quickly, my record is a week from brand new to unuseable and that was a Sony. BMW
