I have had this happen to me! What you are going to want to do is: Go to My Computer Right click your dvd drive (mine is "D") Left click Properties Click the tab on the top that says Hardware *It should show you all of the disk drives on your computer* Locate your DVD drive depending on the manufacturer--click on it Now that it is highlited, click Properties Click the Properties tab at the top of the box Make sure that the volume level all the way to the right If there is a check box saying "Enable sound" or something similar to that, check it If there is a check box saying something like "enable sound for DVDs" check it This should work, if not, respond again to this message! -Mster714-

When i play music or DVD on my windows media player there is no audio sound?


Open Control Panel - Sound and Audio devices - check the sound volume, move to high if required and Mute is not selected.
Next click on Sound tab and select a Windows and click on the play button, if the play button is greyed out then the audio driver is either not installed or not working. In this case install your model audio driver.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

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.

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)
