Yes becasue the webcam software that came along with your webcam is using your audio device and when you play your dvd , the audio devise is in use and hence no sound from dvd. If you know what application came with your webcam, you can just goto task manager (ctrl+alt+delete) and disable it..In future to prevent it from loading, goto msconfig and uncheck that application...your dvd audio should come on fine.

I need more information. Which operating system are you running, what computer do you have? Did the sound ever work, and if so, what did you install that stopped it from working?

I have some movies (format *.avi) that I cannot see (I can hear the sound, though) when I attempt to play once burned as data on a DVD. The message says "video codec not available". I made those movies...

Hello Aristica,
There is No software download for the DVD plaer itself. Where you are going wrong is the Format ie avi that DVD player does not support it. You can Google free software to download which will allow you to convert you AVI file to something that the Dvd player will play:

DVD Video • VCD • SVCD • DVD-R • DVD-RW • DVD+R • DVD+RW • CD (Audio) • CD-R • CD-RW • Picture CD • Divx

so If you type in Google free Avi converter Then this will list several. You really want one that will convert to DIVX or VOB those will definately play on your DVD player.

I hope this has help you out. I tryed not to go into too much detail.

Picture distortion

check the settings on the dvd as if you set the dvd to 4:3 format for instance, the picture will be "squashed" to a letter box format and when you play on wide screen it will become "morphed" and mishaped. also if the tv is set to wide all the time, then this will cause a stretching effect. set the tv to auto picture size or "smart" as it is on sony's, with auto 16:9 on.

My remote control cannot work on rewind, fast forward or comerical skip. The DVD screen display SET 1.

Hello, I had the same problem and after spending a few hours reading and trying things, I found a solution. Its very simple. Power on your unit (manually) and then on your remote control push and hold at the same time"enter" and the number "1" while pointing directly to your unit and this should solve the problem. Good luck.

DVD No Picture

You need to reinstall the DVD decoding software, install newer decodeing software, or update your media player. Your media play may still have issues after the update if you don't have a good decoder. Try IBM's support site or for DVD decoding software.
