No sound from DVD drive

  bpzoom 20:27 23 Aug 2006

I upgraded my old machine by transferring from another a 2.2gb motherboard and a DVD player. Everything works fine except, although there is excellent video from the DVD player, there is no sound. The sound is OK from the CD player. The DVD player is connected to the sound card. Any advice would be appreciated on why I am not getting sound to DVD player. XP Home 2.2mhz and 1gb RAM.

have a look at your sound controls. click the icon next to the clock that looks like a megaphone.

I looked at that and "Mono in" was mute which I changed but no difference. A music CD works OK from the DVD player, but not a DVD which gives no sound.CD

already done that, volume is on full. Do you know if it matters which way the connector from the DVD player is attched to the sound card. It will fit on either way. DVD propeties says it is working OK.

try putting it in other way.

dunno if it will help though

Thanks, it is already ticked. does it matter which program is used to play DVD? I have Nero, Media Player and Real Player.

The DVD playback device is a program called Total Recorder. Should this not be Media Player or Real Player? I can't see a way to change the default, TotalRecorder is a program I bought to record streamed radio, but don't ofter use it.
