I have bought a plextor DVD recorder and a plextor DVD drive. I have no sound when I play a dvd film. playing a cd is fine. Win XP, sound ac97 on motherboard. When I open the software for sound CMedia there 2 choices Headphones or analogue. I have cables from both drives to my motherboard which is about 3 yrs old any ideas.
Many Many thanks Diodorius Siculus that was a great link you gave me. I have downloaded and installed xp codecs nad now I have sound when I use Windows Media Player. I have also Nero Showtime which I like better but ther is still no sound. I think maybe you have to buy the codecs. The thing I am< confused about is what codecs you can install in your computer. does it depend on your sound setup or can you install any codec and how do you know if they are correct? Does anybody know a good Dvd software player (free)that is better than Windows Media Player.
