Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR
I used a Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder to copy an old VCR movie to a dvd. (I returned the recorder and no longer have it or the model number). I can play the dvd on my dvd player and it works fine. Now I want to play it on my computer and edit it, but I have no sound. The video is great, but no audio. I'm using Windows media player (aded K-Lite Codec decoder). Please help. My computer friend doesn't know what to do.
I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.
As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).
