No Audio when playing DVD Films in Media Player

  Audio~~Chip 19:24 17 Feb 2009

... when playing a film using Media Player I have no sound. Music CD's play fine, and audio from online sorces are fine but DVD Films nothing in the way of sound track. They are legit films.

I googled and saw many sources for plug-ins and downloads but they look a little dodgy and risk of spyware with them

Can someone help me in the right direction please.

Maybe a codec pack is required

Power DVD OEM I have, thing is the region codes. Ok, films are Region 2, I tried and it played ok and alternalty work when pointed towards it played on Windows Media Player.

Can I ask, everytime I play a film with Cyberlink Power DVD, will the Region code life when counted down stop me from using it. I have 4 lives left, will playing another DVD bring it to 3 lives left ?

Audio chip that warning is some 4 months old and the current version is not affected nor is it a risk if you dont download and use dodgy files
