    Do you have the proper audio driver software installed?

    It could also be your DVD drive. (but less likely).

    I put a movie in the other day, couldn't get sound, cycled the player tray, and all of a sudden, "let there be sound". And I heard the sound, and verily it was good.

    It may be a codec issue. Try playing the video with VLC media player (you have to install if first).

    TS should probably let us know what OS is in his machine. WMP in XP, has NO codec for DVD-Video.

    Windows Vista only has DVD-Video codec in WMP at "Vista Home Premium" and above.

    Windows 7 has DVD-Video codec in all versions. (Unless this is some sort of net book, in which case you're s*** out of luck).
