First: is your cd drive an actual DVD drive? and which media player are you using? you may need the "codecs" installed for playing dvds. if you download the Divx Player, this may fix your problem.

I'M HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE SOUND ON MY LAPTOP.WHEN I PLAY A DVD THE PICTURE SHOWS BUT NO SOUND.HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!


mcdevito75 here, It may be the sound track on the DVD itself, try another DVD and see how the sound is. If the sound is OK without any DVD being played you simply have to adjust the sound while playing DVD"s either at the speakers or with the volume control on your key board.

My DVD player in my laptop is not producing sound, only picture. I have an Acer Aspire 5738z. The sound works for everything else just not DVD. Would be grateful if you have any advice for me. Thanks


If you are trying to play the DVD using Windows Media Player, click on this DIRECT LINK for the K-Lite Codec and install it. This will let you play your DVD correctly. Please let me know of the outcome and we can try something else in case it does not work. Thank you and regards.

When playing dvds have sound but no picture


Hi
This issue comes up due to many reasons..

1. Video Driver for display adapters to be updated
2. Codec not available.. Try in a different media player..(E.g> KM player, VLC player, GOM player, KL mega codec)
3. Check the DVD in a diff computer/Laptop or toa DVD player connected to a TV set.

Sol for issue 1: You can get latest & official drivers from your computer manufaxcturer's site or you may opt for some third party driver agents available(Google it)

Sol for issue 2: All the players i mentioned are free apps.. So download and try it..

Sol for 3: If DVD plays fine in a diff machine, then issue with your computer.. if it fails to play in diff computer's then its purely a faulty DVD.

Cheers

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

Not getting proper sounds while playing dvds


you need to use a sound wire from your dvd player to your motherboard. if you are already using one i would suggest getting a new one.

Dvd getting picture but no sound


can you play a music cd? if not, your probably missing the audio cable that hooks between the player and the motherboard or soundcard ( if a separate card is installed )
