DVD Sound Missing

Hi,
I can play CDs ok and DVDs but I can't get any sound with the DVDs. All other sounds are working - it's just the DVD sound causing the problem.
My motherboard is an ASUS P-5GPLX and my sound system is SoundMax. I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2.
I'd be grateful for any help that you provide.
Regards,
John

Hello folks,
If you install another program like Nero xxx. Nero adds or can take away window media player's format from playing certain codec’s. Any program installed like burner software can do the same. This is a software issue. To help fix it download & install codec's from this site. This should help to regain sound for DVD formats.
http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Codec_Pack_download.htm
Free download.
Other items. Some PC's can loose DVD sound in windows media player 11. Check that you're version of windows is up to date. Last ditch effort. Insert the DVD & open windows explorer. Right click on the DVD drive & see what the format is. (Ex: ***.vob, ***.mp4, ***.divx). Than search either Microsoft or Google for the matching codec's. Download & install it from the web.
Suggestion. Use only one playback software program. Bouncing between programs is not suggested. Find which looks & sound best for you & uninstall the others if not needed.
If by chance non of the above has helped or fixed this issue, please list the program you are using to play DVD's & the format of the DVD.

Good luck all!

Mike

What is mean by troubleshooting?give some examples.


Troubleshooting simply means, investigating a problem to find out the cause and to fix the problem. We can also say; the process of finding and fixing a problem is called troubleshooting.
Example like when your computer has sound problem, we have to find out what is the cause, suppose if it's drivers related problem, after installing or updating the sound drivers will fix the problem so here, installing and updating the sound driver is the Fix.
If you cd/dvd player isn't playing your Cds/Dvds, you have to check the media (cd and dvds), after that, you'll also clean the cd or dvds. And if your cd/dvd problem is caused by the Lens not the others like cds or motor, etc.., then replacing the lens will fix the problem and there'll be no more problem with your cd/dvd player. I'll read and play all cds/dvds after the lens is replaced.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Loading Problem


No Disk issues on device players like DVDs are caused by the following problems

Dirty Play Heads (Optical lens)
Bad CDs or scratched CDs on the surface
Non Compatible CD formats such as DVDs that are designed for some geographical regions and play formats
Also low electrical current is a major problem too

Your issue could reside amongst any of these problems

Check your DVD compactible play formats if its compactible with the CD you want to play.

If its compactible, then I suggest you get a CD Cleaner to clean to clean to Lens.

Also check your current output and if low, get a voltage stabilizer

Check the surface of the CD if its scratched and get a replacement.

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs


Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.
