Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve problems with sound and audio.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com andin the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Downloadand install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It'sa very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formatsand media. It's totally FREE. If VLC Player works try your media player again. It might be necessary to reinstall Windows Media Player if it still gives you the error message.
You can update Windows Media Player to its latest version from Microsoft website. Windows Media Player comes in-built in all versions of Windows. However, if your Windows Media Player is not updated you can download and install the latest version of media player from Microsoft website. Before downloading, you should check whether your computer satisfies the basic requirements of the new version or not. After updating the older version perform a restart for the changes to take effect.
Hello hassahabi, what I think happened to your sound is this. When the apple iTunes software installed you allowed iTunes to take over all your sound files within the system. To gain back your system sounds try this: Open windows Explorer & left click once on C:\ Once high-lighted, left click on Tools & left click the tab " File Types ". Scroll down the list to, WAV. Left click once on WAV - wav sound. The sound file should open with Windows Media Player & not to ipod or iTunes. Click the, "Change" button. The "Open With", window will open. Find, Windows Media Player in the list. Left click once on it & than click OK. Most of windows sounds are located in the C:\Windows\Media folder. I suggest you also set MID to open with Windows Media Player. Once finished close all opened windows & restart your system. When windows finishes loading open the sound icon by first double left clicking the sound icon. Check that the wave slide bar is all the way up! Close that window. Now right click once on the sound icon & left click "Adjust Audio Properties". Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window will open. See if the play button is no longer grayed out. If it is grayed out you'll have no choice but to uninstall the apple software to free your system sounds. Next round of ipod iTunes installation watch your screen's & choose not to allow iTunes to control, *.wav sound files. Good luck hassahabi! Run into trouble? Post back here.
Hello folks, If you install another program like Nero xxx. Nero adds or can take away window media player's format from playing certain codec’s. Any program installed like burner software can do the same. This is a software issue. To help fix it download & install codec's from this site. This should help to regain sound for DVD formats. http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm Free download. Other items. Some PC's can loose DVD sound in windows media player 11. Check that you're version of windows is up to date. Last ditch effort. Insert the DVD & open windows explorer. Right click on the DVD drive & see what the format is. (Ex: ***.vob, ***.mp4, ***.divx). Than search either Microsoft or Google for the matching codec's. Download & install it from the web. Suggestion. Use only one playback software program. Bouncing between programs is not suggested. Find which looks & sound best for you & uninstall the others if not needed.
If by chance non of the above has helped or fixed this issue, please list the program you are using to play DVD's & the format of the DVD.

Sorry cannot be more specific as I do not know what your sound card is
