Intervideo windvd creator2 dvd will not play on sony dvd player

hey make sure that your procedure in making a dvd is making a dvdmovie something like that, i think is that you just copy the video as data not a dvd format although you burn it in a dvd make sure you choose the right option in intervideo.

My dvd player will show the video but there's no sound

Still haven't solved the dvd audio issue but it DOES play flawlessly on WinDVD. It still won't play on Real Player OR on Windows Media Player. So I'll just have to lay dvd's on WinDVD.

I would suggest trying WinDVD and see if that works. If so, then yes, it would be a decoder issue.

Dvd will not play movies

I'm assuming the system says that there is no disc and you've tried factory DVDs (self made ones can have intermittent results on different burners).

If that is the case, this is probably a problem with the drive's DVD laser. There are two different lasers in most (probably all) combo drives. One for CDs and one for DVDs. You need a new drive.

Can't play dvd in my sony vaio laptop

The Vaio / Sony combo DVD drives are renowned to be some of the worst on the market. Sony puts the cheapest cr*p in their laptop and it should be no surprise that after a couple of reads (10+) and writes (10+), your combo drive will be as good as junk... dead weight in your laptop. You'll also hear strange repetitive noises coming from it. I have 3 solutions:
1) Go to the Vaio support site, type your model number to get its page and search DVD upgrade firmware. This should 2 files. One is a .bin and the other is an executable to flash the drive with that .bin file. If the problem still persists then bad news.
2) Buy a USB2 external combo drive. This should be real cheap nowadays.
3) Check impactcomputers for a replacement internal drive. Prices have come down but still quite pricey.

Also if you can let those f*cks at Vaio know what you had to go through, that'd be great.
