Not getting proper sounds while playing dvds

Hi,
whenever i'm trying to play dvds( irrespective of burned or commercial discs)on my laptop (hp 520) the sound is not coming properly kinda scratchy. However , when i copy the files on to my computer and then try to play them , they are playing absolutely fine. I'm using VLC player as well as in windows media player , and also power dvd. All have the same output .
tried deleting the filters from the registry; still the same issue. Everytime i have to copy all the files on the discs and then i have to play the files on to my comp.
Kindly help

You need to use a sound wire from your dvd player to your motherboard. if you are already using one i would suggest getting a new one.

    it would not be a codec problem or the files from your pc would play the same as the dvd ones. you have no direct sound feed wire from your dvd player. it is a little skinny wire with a little flat connection on each end. it will go from your dvd to your motherboard. you need the sound to go through the best possible way and the IDE cabel is not the best way.
    all the sources have the same output yes but they do not have the same output.
    what filters did you delete and what else did you remove from the registry?

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

Can i install a philips dvd8801 in my dell dimension 4600? if so, what do i need to download and/or install for it to function?


Yes, you can install it. The drive is a standard size and will fit the drive bay in your Dell. You'll just need to set the master/slave jumper to whichever your new drive will be. If you're just replacing the optical drive, or it's connected to the first plug on the data cable from the motherboard, set the jumper to master (MA). If you're installing this as a slave, connected to the middle plug on the data cable, set the jumper to slave (SL).This drive comes standard in some Dell systems and they have this user's guide which shows the connections.

You don't need anything for Windows to be able to use the drive. It's seen as a standard drive type and Windows will work with it straight away. But you'll need some kind of burning software to make CDs or DVDs. Windows does have built-in burning capability but it's pretty limited. A good free disc burning application is CDBurnerXP. There are commercial programs like Nero as well. If you want to make DVDs that you intend to play in a regular DVD player, or want to make DVDs with menus and other features like the commercial releases, you need DVD authoring software. The commercial programs with all the bells and whistles are pretty costly. DVDStyler is a free program that offers a lot of functions.

Have fun, and thanks for using Fixya!

Unable to read cds /dvds, made by me, of my photos. It will play pre recorded DVDs. ie Palin set. can see files but then computer hangs. Running Vista. Similar occurs on my desktop but I get the blue...


lost of things could be happening ,depending on optical drive manufacturer,file type,plus or minus dvd/cd blank disk and burning software and how you are burning the media,all can cause malfunctions,but if playing a disc causes blue screen of death,then i would first uninstall display adapter driver on graphics card,and restart,when computer finds new hardware,click cancel,go to dell support and get newest driver,and software,reinstall..some optical drives like minus discs,some like plus discs,depending on the drive,if its a combo drive and will read and write both plus and minus discs,then the problem is how you are burning them,or the laser is dirty or drive is malfunctioning.if you arent allready using nero burning software,then i would reccomend it,i have been doing this a long time,had my days of problems,,not anymore,i dont work for nero nor am i paid by them to say this, but i am a computer repair tech with 25+years experience,save yourself hours of pain and wasted blank discs,and purchase it,user friendly ,easy to use ,and advanced drive speed tools ,allow max preformance on any computer,read instructions ,discs must be burned with correct file type for device that plays them back ,disc at once or track at once settings ,matter,also using the slowest burning speed,creates a higher quality disc,but takes longer,post comments if you have more questions ,aloha from maui todd0708

Replacing a cd drive


The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try download.com to download Free player software and Burning software

Dvd will not play movies


I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.

Hi : I have a HP Pavillion a1218n (P4) computer that is about three years old. I would like to burn data to 8.5 GB Dual Layer - Single sided DVD storage media disks. My CD/DVD burner : burns, flip, burn...


Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,
