Audio Playback Problems

When I try and play back a DVD or CD on my K-16 there are always audio problems, usually popping noises. This happens no matter what DVD or CD I use (burned or not) and no matter what program I use to play it back. This started all of a sudden, it had worked perfectly fine before.

Re: Audio Playback Problems

I've since fixed the problem, by doing a System Restore. Nothing else worked, so I gave it a try and so far, so good. I hope it works for you too. Good luck.

Burning movies on the computer , playback fine on two computeers , will not play on ONN portable player used DVD-R

Burning dvd\'s is always a crapshoot when you have multiple machines. Computer drives are more tolerant on playback - the problem lies with your other, independent playback units. That is why in your main viewing area it is important that you have a few units so that if disk does not play in one machine, it will play on another. Has to do with the individual differences and calibrations of the machines involved. Store bought dvd\'s have less problems because their laser reflectivity is always higher than disks you burn, and therefore, easier to read properly. Price of the unit has no reflection on ability to properly read the disk. Sometimes and often, a cheaper machine will work better with copies - you never know.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cd/dvd drive has been corrupted and is missing and now i cant play movies or cds and it happened two months ago wat do i do

The CD, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RW, Blu-Ray and any other drive that uses a laser to read data from a CD. In general, most optical drive problems can be resolved by:
  • Updating the optical drive firmware
  • Updating the burning software
  • Updating the DVD playback software
  • Updating the computer's video driver in cases of video playback issues
  • Updating the computer's audio driver in cases of audio playback issues
To download the Firmware of your machine click here. i have selected the default 1525 but if you click on enter the service tag, it will give you your computer's firmware. or you can check it in device manager as well.
you can also try deleting the upper and lower filters. in regedit.

in vista. click on start /type regedit in start search.
then continue the action and then click on the +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / + SYSTEM / +CURRENT CONTROLSET / +CONTROL /+ CLASS /+ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and on the right side look for upper filters or lower filters and delete them. and then restart the computer. it should fix this.

in case the issue is not resolved. you might need to get the optical drive replaced.

if this information was helpful. please rate the solution.

You may have dislodged a cable whilst installing it.

speakers should always go into the same port which is usually colour coded green for ease of use. plugging them in elsewhere could on occasion cause other problems.

Also double check in the volume control properties that none of the sound playback devices have been MUTED and that the levels are all set to about half.

Most drives today can playback audio without anything other than the power cable and the data cable being plugged in correctly.

Some however do come with a thin cable that would go from the drive to either the motherboard or sound card. is that is the case then you should check your manuals for your sound hardware and make the required connection.

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.

Audio problem by DVD Play

You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because
it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With
a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog
for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in
digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select
properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties,
then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM
