SOURCE: sound not recorded
You need an 1/8" male jack plug (both ends) cable. One end plugs to audio out on TV card, the other end plugs to audio in on the sound card. Or is it the other way around. Anyway, thats what you need. I think Radio Shack sells them maybe BestBuy or Circuit City.
Use Nero if any of those other programs show up
on the dropdown menu of burners dvdrom player
etc you will have to unistall completly the drivers
every mention of the other ones in the registry
It always a good idea to clean the registry of
entrants to uinstalled programs those old
keys and strings can cause problems
There was a compatibility issue with this model. Philips released a software update for this model.

Read and follow the instructions CAREFULLY.
Well normally in Windows XP the DVD/CDRW drive won't need anymore drivers, since Windows automatically installs one for it. I assume the problem you're having is that the drive is not able to read CDs/DVDs or burn a disc, correct?
If that is the case you can actually follow this microsoft KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B314060
This will give you indepth help on what to do. I would recommend that you do the removal of the upper filters and lower filters in the registry.
You can test if the optical drive works in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 on startup and choosing Safe Mode, then logging into yourr account. See if the disc is read in Safe Mode, if it does, then you have a program that is conflicting with the drive. I would recommend that you run MSCONFIG, goto Startup tab and disable most if not all of the startup items, then click on APPLY then OK.
The next thing is running the diagnostics for the computer to see if there any reported hardware problems. Now if all tests passed, the next step is reseating the optical drive (if possible) check the computer manual on how to do procedure, otherwise you may have to call up Dell Technical Support.
Now you may have to replace the drive itself since it could be defective now.
Hope this helps!
There are work arounds... but the reason is when its burnt and finialized its written in .vob format which is dvd mpeg2 format. majority of windows media player codecs wont pick it up. divx does. its just the format its burnt in and you cant change obviously. you can just try like nero showtime which always works or ending up ripping the disc on the computier but that might defeat your purpost of burning them in the first place. Its not the dvd recorder i may add, its just the format. by the way its a magnavox unit made by funai... www.funai-corp.com/support and trust me your not going to get much out of their. your better off going into forums finding more high depth problems if you really want this to work for firends and families and such.
