Can't Hear Sound when I play DVDs

By weatherman90 ยท 6 replies

  1. Ok, just to clarify a few things:

    - My speakers are on :)
    - I can hear audio files just fine

    My problem is that I am no longer able to hear the sound when I play dvds in the player, or even when I play Video_TS files from dvd copies already existing on my computer. I see the video, but no audio comes out whatsoever.

    I have tried playing them in a variety of player including Dell CinePlayer, Windows Media Player, and ATI

    This problem just began about a week ago - I've never had the problem before. I haven't unplugged any cables or moved any soundcards.

    The only thing I can possibly think of is that I recently had to shut down my computer to stop it from burning a DVD. As I said before, though, I can't even hear sound when I play DVDs off of existing files.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    I've got Windows Media Player 11 - I will try Storm Codec.

    If its a codec issue, though, wouldn't it give me an error message?

    Also, why would it just suddenly stop working?

    Scratch that - I fixed it! :)

    Apparently some Sonic Player update was all it took.

    Thanks for the help guys!
