DVD+-RW plays DVD video without sound

I bought a new Sony DVD re-writer on 15-Jan-08. The writer plays VCD with video and sound properly but when I play a DVD movie, it plays video without sound.

Re: DVD+-RW plays DVD video without sound

If you did not install the wires to the motherboard ( a small set of wires- I think it's 4-pin) it will not play the sound- ( that's if it requires that wire)
you can also uninstall it in device manager, restart and let windows re-install it again because software may have overwritten some important files-

finally the software that plays the dvd may be buggy in that it mutes the sound- check the toggle (it may be on mute on the screen) I always uninstall it and use interactual dvd player that comes with universal dvd's ( like the Bourne moveis next to me right now)

for stand alone software- I prefer Nero as Roxio overwrites everything- Nero is friendly- playing dvd's , burning etc...

Hope it works for you

In my sony dvd combo 1 movie vcd is playing very well .but any dvd or dvd movie is not running & not read .pls suggest what to do now.


is it new if its new then look for the customer support center for warranty and if its out of 6 months warranty then clean your DVD combo with cleaner and then check the SATA cable if its attached properly ,,, and also change the power supply wire, just for a check , if problem don't persist then may be you have a power supply issue... cause DVD power usage is a little high, and CD's take low POWER , just some points difference .

It sounds like you don't have the proper driver installed for that device. Without the appropriate driver your software will not be able communicate with the device properly.

Dvd writer wont accept dvd-r

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.
