If this is a Desktop computer it is in..
Make sure 1st it is recognised in "My computer" (icon present)
Check it will play / read other discs
Check the connectors (SATA or IDE) are plugged into the back of the DVD and the power rail is tight.
Also if there is a CD to Mobo lead from the back of the DVD make sure it is plugged in
If it spins the discs, and there is no rattling etc, the drive is probably working ok.
If you are trying to play movie DVD's, software such as Cyberlink or similar is required

If this is a laptop DVD, check it is seen in "my computer" (Icon present)
Check as for Desktop with regard to the correct DVD player software being present

Finally, check that you have the sound drivers installed (will show under the speaker icon in control panel). If still stuck, repost wioth more info

Audio is choppy only when playing blu ray dvd, works fine with a regular DVD. OS XP, using Cyber link Power DVD 10 program.


What is your PC/Laptop specifications?

Running Blu-ray movies is very CPU power hungry. You may not have a good enough CPU to be running bluray dvds if both audio and video are clipping.

If it is just audio, I highly recommend the video player called "VLC". It plays everything and is undoubtedly the best video player currently available, and it is FREE.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

New hp dvd writer... no sound from dvd's


First double click on speaker image in right corner of your screen to see if you have MUTE disabled for all the devices and you have audio drivers to have speaker activated. Second, if you recently istalled new dvd driver it can be hardware problem. There are audio plugs (analog and digital) on back of DVD-Burner. Check if they are connected properly. Third your DVD-playback software might not supporting audio, so you might be missing audio codecs to playback DVD-audio. It depends which program you using. Maybe you need to download another program to playback DVD, for instance Windows Media Player 11.
Good Luck

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.

I can hear cds and see video on my hp dvd 1040i multiformat dvd writer but I can not hear audio to the movie/dvds i have rented.


Sounds like you might have a setting that is incorrect for DVDs in the setup menu.

Grab your DVD player remote and press the SETUP button. Navigate to the audio menu. Make sure Spdif is turned off (unless you're using an optical cable for your sound), that the audio stream is set to PCM (standard for CDs) or RAW, and turn off any Dolby/Digital Dolby/Surround Sound/etc. Now play a disc.

There's also another way if your remote has an AUDIO button. While the DVD is playing, press the AUDIO button and you should see a small windo that pops up that will tell you what the audio is set to. Press the button and wait a couple of seconds between presses to see if the audio starts playing.

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

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Are you sure your player has got the right codecs to play both audio and video of the DVD you have burnt?


PS: Try installing the Ace Mega Codecs Pack just to make sure you have all the codecs. (Remember though that this software will install all the required codecs as well as the unneeded ones...the ones maybe required in the future probably)
