Here are list of things you could do:

1. Go to control panel and check your sound devices or sound controller. The icon should look like a speaker, check if it has any conflicts or if it is even available. If not, then you need to find out what driver software does your audio hardware is compatible with. You can find drivers at www.driverscollection.com download the driver that matches with the description of your audio hardware and install it.
Im not sure if this program will help, but you could also use a software called everest free edition. Google it and download it to check your computer hardware specs.

2. Check you mini plug cable connection if they are inserted properly or damaged and also check your speaker if its blown/busted or not.

3. Defrag your computer sometimes there could be a delay on the HHD(hard disk drive) due to too much fragmented files.

YouTube video plays double audio


Try updating your flash to the latest version, If it doesn't fix anything try loading a youtube video using google chrome as that has the flash built in.

If the problem persists even in Chrome, you can try is to check if your sound card drivers are up to date as the issue might be there.

Hop this helps.

Computer plays sound but no picture off dvd


Hi there,
It sounds like you're either missing a codec or a video driver, the former being the most likely.
A codec is a small file that tells the computer what to do when you play a dvd. You can download a one time setup pack of codecs here:
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
Download, install, and reboot your computer. Try playing the dvd again, and if it still doesn't work, you may want to update your video drivers.

Shaky sound and video


To solve this:

1- Check if you have more than 1 DVD player program installed. If yes, uninstall any you don't use (being careful not to uninstall the one you use or that's needed for the recording part of what you do)
2- Check if you have more than 1 Media player software like VLC media player, Microsoft Media player (automatically installed) etc.

Because it also affects video played saved on your computer (assuming AVI or video you play using Windows Media Player or another player) and DVD playback, its usually a program that is conflicting with another of the same type (plays media Audio/Video). If the above solution did not work, try performing the "system restore" and choose a date of when you definitely remember it working without chatter. If this is not an option, proceed below.

If your computer has been performing regular updates and you happen to be using a new Windows Media player, do you remember if it happened during a computer software update? If yes, the fault lies with Windows Media player having performed an upgrade to itself. You may want to "demote" media player by going to Control Panel and "add or remove programs" list (making sure "show updates" is checked) and scroll down until you see Windows Media player. Then uninstall the latest update it has performed.

If you installed another media player/DVD player program(s) and it coincides with your problems, uninstall it. Multiple DVD/Media players have their own settings, file changes/updates and they can affect one another if installed simultaneously on 1 system.

Let us know how it goes and rate us. :)

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.

Cannot get sound or colour to work


Sound:

I had exactly the same problem and solved it by updating the drivers for the USB sound/audio device.

My XP version is in Swedish so I´m not sure what it says in English, but it should say something like the following.

Go to the "Device manager" by right clicking on "This computer" and choosing "Properties", locate the "USB sound/audio device" under the "Sound, Video and Game"-category and right click and chose "Update drivers". Then chose "Search for drivers on the internet" and chose "Recommended installation".
My new drivers are called "USB EMP Audio Device". They work perfectly. Of course you have to chose these drivers under "Options/Input source".

I wasn´t able to update the actual EasyCap video adapter, but it doesn´t seem to matter if you´re having problems with the sound.

Video:

Click on "File", then "Preferences" then "Capture" flap, check the "Allow access to capture device´s settings" box, click "OK". Go the the "Capture" flap in the main window and chose "Capture video". Now you should see "Options", click and chose "Capture properties", then "Video capture filter", click "Properties" in the same window and the chose the correct "Videostandard", for example "NTSC" for USA and "PAL" for Europe. Try all of the alternatives until you get a picture.

Make sure you have chosen the right input source under "Options (see above/Input source". Chose Composite or S-video (you´re likely using composite). I can´t use an S-videocable, only a videocable, otherwise the picture turns black and white.

Now you should see something, if not, maybe something went wrong when you installed the drivers/software.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like the firmware has corrupted. Install and run the Firmware Update software from the product CD.

Select the repair option and follow the on-screen prompts. This will re-load the firmware and should get your player working again.
