No sound after downloading to PC

When the videos are dowloaded to our PC and we play back there is no sound. We have checked all the obvious but still our videos remain silent. Please help.

    No sound after copying to PC - I copied several files from my dcr-sr40 to my pc. They play video in Media Player, but no sound. I just want to play and burn them to DVD not edit. Any other suggestions?

Make sure you download the latest drivers from your device maker. then make sure you have your specific device selected for audio import in your editing screen. I wasn't able to get sound from my sony camcorder under windows movie maker until i selected my camcorder for audio import. Using your computer's sound card for audio import will not work. Hope this helps.

The sound works fine except when you play dvds- it has no sound whatsoever

This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.


Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

I can record/play a video, but during play back there's no sound.

Check your display(on screen) do you see a word "NARRATION"? if so switch that off(can be found in the menu). Or it could be your internal speaker busted. To confirm connect it to your TV, sound must be heard on tv. Otherwise, have it check by the expert. Good luck

No sound out of my speakers, i have a sony viao vgn-ar630e, i just reloaded windows vista along with all of the updates and it shows in itunes and varios other media players that a song or video is playing...

If the sound was working before you reloaded VISTA, you have driver problems.
The best way to fix your problems is to check your device manager for flags and if found, remove them.
Next, go to sony's website and download your VISTA drivers and install them.
Do you see a speaker on the lower tool bar ?
