What version of Windows do you have? How long have you had the sound problem? Have you tried updating the software, or uninstalling then re-installing it?

Its windows XP (home edition). I would suspect it being the program itself. its strange because normal mp3/wave file play fine. Ill try reinstalling the program..do u have any other possibilities?thanks

DVD video uses use a different decoder for audio, it's a bit more complex than a plain audio file; click here

It seems to be the 'CD/Video in' that is causing the fuzzing noise. Does this help?Any ideas? Cheers

No the decoder(s) should do everything for you, one is decoding the video, the other for audio is obviously not working. Let's just clarify something; I'm assuming you want to stick a DVD movie in your PC drive and watch it?
