Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com andin the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Downloadand install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It'sa very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formatsand media. It's totally FREE.
try playing the sound file with other media players, if still not playing reinstall ur audio driver either by dowloading the driver from internet or by installing it from ur driver cd. if ur audio device driver is integrated or plug n play device then, step 1:open control panel step 2:open 'sound speech and audio devices' step 3: in the property menu of audio devices select drivers from the tab step 4:select uninstall driver. step 5: restart ur computer and the audio device will be reinstalled. if it is the problem with ur windows media player, then step 1:select option/preferences from the menu. step 2:select devices from the tab. step 3:test all the devices by selecting each one at a time to play ur sound file.
Can you play audio files even if there's no sound with the Windows Media Player? if so some files of the sound driver is missing, you need to update the sound driver. Or if you can't play, then there's no sound driver only the codec is present without the device driver, the process is more or less the same..but before you follow these steps, put the Motherboard Driver CD on the CD Rom: Right Click on My Computer - Manage - Device Manager - Right click on the Yellow icon - Update Driver - No, Not this time - Next - Install from a list or Specific location - Next - Tick the "Include this Location in the Search - Browse - Go to the CD Rom Directory and search the Driver/Audio folder - and Select the Audio Driver folder - click OK- Next - Finish.. done..... Good luck.. Do let me know if this doesn't solve your problem, i am ready to help you..
