No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will reconize cd's
I have to internal DVD-RW players on my computer that will not accept the dvd's but will read a cd. I upgraded the firmware via your driver download page. When I put in a cd, it reconizes the cd and the information shows on the media player, but there is no sound, and the sound card and related software is working. I hear sound from all other sources [ applications, etc...] except from my dvd drives???

Re: No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will...
I'll take that as a no,
In fact the default for most types of media is media player but it doesn't include all of the relevant codex's you require for every type of media by default.
Most manufacturers include this software with their computers/DVDROM's but not always.
The reason I assume it is your codex not being installed is simple, you can play CD's, that means the drive works, media player works, sound card works and speakers work. The only common problem that would cause this is a missing or corrupted codex.
try something for me and let me know if it solves the problem.

If the CD-R/DVD has sound in another computer or player be sure your computer's external speakers are powered and on. Quit the player application that you are using for the DVD. If you are using the computer's internal speakers, or if the external speakers are plugged in and turned on, go to the System Preferences and open the Sound control panel. Be sure that the correct output sources is selected. Open the CD-R/DVD player and see if the sound now works.
Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.
Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.
As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.
Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.
Should be IDE cable...IDE interface according to the specs. You computer has IDE connections so the drive should work.

Read your manual. It sounds as if you might have purchased the wrong type of dvd's. For example, if your dvd player states it uses dvd - r, then you can not use dvd + r dvd's. and visa versa. You have to find out what dvd's specifically your unit takes/utilizes. I think there is about 5 different types of dvd's coding (dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw) find out which yours takes and you should be ok. Good Luck and hope this helps you!
GeorgeHavem- Have you played the same format on your dvd before,cause if not it sounds like your dvd will not accept the format.If your unit plays regular dvd,then it sounds like a format problem,let me know. cooltekFeb.18/08
If you have posted the correct model of writer, then it only supports the writing of DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but CD-R and CD-RW disc writing are supported, and it should play all forms of DVD, so it won't burn DVD-R and RW discs, but if it wont play all types then try a cd/dvd cleaner, but to be honest when writers start playing up the lens is normally faulting and a replacement drive will be required.
