Replace the CD/DVD player -- less than $20 for a new one.
Take the old/broken one to the computer-store, to get a new one with matching power/data connectors.

SOURCE: No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will reconize cd's

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.

Install VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Then try to play the DVD using VLC player. If it asks to update itself, let it.

Comment back here once you have tried and let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: I have a dell vostro 1500. I sudenly can't burn

Hello,

You may need to update the software you use to burn disk. Sometimes you can lose the needed drivers to burn your disk. Once you update the software, reboot and try again.

Good Luck

MY COMPUTER AUDIO DRIVE IS NOT WORKING


You mean you CDR/DVD ROM?
Is your CD scratched or dirty?
No light indicator from the ROM?
Cannot read DVD/CD? Can you view the CD/DVD content from the Windows Explorer?
When you insert your CD/DVD to the ROM no response?

If your drive does not response to the above,

Then you need to replace the drive.

  • Raw Audio-CD Data
  • Sound File This association is classified as Audio. Associated links: Linux Player

The DMG file type is primarily associated with 'Macintosh OS X' by Apple Inc.. On the Macintosh, these files are treated like a real disk. They can be created with Disk Copy, burnt to CD or mounted as a normal volume. The DMG file also comes in different formats: HFS, HFS+, UFS, ProDOS, Linux, and Fat32 and so may also require special mounting software to account for the format. IsoBuster can interpret these files directly as can other programs such as UltraISO. The program TransMac, by Acute Systems, can both open and create DMG files on a PC.

Problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder


'No audio' comes up when you use the wrong type of cdr in the drive. You need a 'consumer audio' or 'music' specific CDR and not a generic computer cdr to use in these units.
