Question about Creative Labs PC-DVD Encore 8x with Dxr3 (5072301000) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

Pioneer dvd has no sound on playback and freezes the pc

I have an hp a210e with xp and I can't play dvds without freezing windows and it has no volume during playback. Also, it may be related, but I also can't use Netflix instant viewer without freezing up. Several months ago, I had to do a system recovery and it all started after that. I solved one problem and found another one. The dvd player also won't burn anymore.

How do I play dvd's on windows 11 media player with xp


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.

No sound on DVD playback but CDs play fine


Hi
It seems like you dont have the right Codecs. You can either download and install some codec pack like i.e. "K-lite codec pack" or use VLC player to play your DVDs.

New hp dvd writer... no sound from dvd's


First double click on speaker image in right corner of your screen to see if you have MUTE disabled for all the devices and you have audio drivers to have speaker activated. Second, if you recently istalled new dvd driver it can be hardware problem. There are audio plugs (analog and digital) on back of DVD-Burner. Check if they are connected properly. Third your DVD-playback software might not supporting audio, so you might be missing audio codecs to playback DVD-audio. It depends which program you using. Maybe you need to download another program to playback DVD, for instance Windows Media Player 11.
Good Luck

I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56

I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?

Windows media player


Windows XP does not come with the proper software to play DVDs. All major brands of pcs come with a piece of software called a DVD decoder. Once the DVD decoder is installed windows media player can play DVDs again. This software will be on your application recovery disks from your manufacturer. If you do not have these disks you can purchase them from the company who built your PC or you can purchase a DVD decoder software such as the ones found here. If you don't want to purchase one you can try a different program such as the VLC Media player to play your DVDs. VLC is a free download.
