DVD from laptop to computer

When I play a DVD through my Sony VAIO laptop with Windows Vista, I plug an S-video cord into my TV and laptop. The picture is great, but the sound is only coming from my laptop. How do I get sound from the TV?

Re: DVD from laptop to computer

you need to connect your TV to your laptop with the audio cable as well. A simple S video cable will only gives you video. You can buy a simply audio video cable and use the audio output from your laptop to your TV and keep on using the S video for video.
Or you can use simple external laptop speakers to gives you sound with your TV output.
Hope that helped!
Good luck!

I have a Sony VAIO laptop. I installed Windows 7 Professional on it through USB. Now My DVD drive (MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8B0) is not detecting any DVDs. Pls help me.

You need to find a driver for your DVD-RAM that is compatible with Windows 7. Try the Sony support website or Matshita's.

I'vd got not driver

Windows 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have "built-in" device-drivers to allow you to read "data" files from CD and/or DVD drives.

However, you need software, such as 'PowerDVD' in order to "play" pre-recorded audio/video content recorded on DVD media.

See: for information about 'PowerDVD' software.

Playing DVDs on Laptop through the TV

Here's what's happening... software companies like CyberLink subscribe to the Macrovision requirements for playing DVDs and protecting copyrighted materials.

Macrovision has approved numerous video cards for what they call "TV Out" which allows the movie to be displayed on your TV.

Unfortunately, your Dell Inspiron does not have a Macrovision approved and supported video card in it, so it gives instructions to the computer to disable TV Out and not allow it to play anywhere besides the computer.

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up

I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?

This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
