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.

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.


If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

Media center does not play cds or dvds please help


You have to check your CD/DVD Rom to make sure the device is not faulty.

Open your Windows Explorer, insert any CD/DVD to see whether your CD/DVD is able to read the the disk.

If it cannot read the disk, most probably the CD/DVD rom is faulty and you have to replace it.

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.

DVD will not play, windows media player XP, when inserted in player. CDs play automatically but DVD does not.


Uninstall the media player,goto windows Market place and install windows media 11. its free and has all the new updates. Providing you have the correct system requirements. If not you can reinstall your old version at the same site and will probably have the required updates anyway.

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.
