No sound from DVD while all other sound works

Hello

This is the most difficult for me to resolve. DVD plays but i have no sound while all other sound works fine
I have uninstalled/reinstalled all available software I have (PoweDVD and other players codecs drivers) but
nothing happened. I have a Sound blaster audigy 2 platinum. Gspot analysed my system and finds every codec
properly installed and registered. The only thing I have founded is that meda player 10 is responsible for that
so i uninstalled/reinstalled media 9 codecs and finally removed them but i i still get no sound from the DVD.
I tried also windows media player 11 but without result. Can anybody help me? Please I am in desperate situation

George

Re: No sound from DVD while all other sound works

Welcome to CD Freaks.

I'm no audio expert but I have a question.

Does the DVD have DTS audio or Dolby 5.1. If it's DTS then that could be the problem and usually there's a 5.1 as well which should be playable.

Hello and thanks for the reply

I don't think that it is the problem. Every movie I insert into the drive has no sound. To ensure this I have also changed the settings in each player separetely from Dolby Surround, DTS, to other custom settings but without result. If I proceed to the format procedure the sound from will be ok for a time. But I can't go into this cause 1) I have many data to backup and 2) After a certain time the problem will reappear as I have already seen in a previous format for the same reason. I am convinced that windows media player has caused this but every effort to fix it (uninstall reinstall 10,11 media 9 codecs) has led to failure. However I appreciate very much your kind support.

Not necessary these days as audio is extracted directly via the IDE cables.

Try using VLC (videolan client) to play DVD's. It ought to work, since it mostly uses its own codecs rather than those installed at the OS level.

Win DVD from InterVideo generally succeeds where WMP fails and it often happens !

I managed finally to play the DVD with the following programs: Media Player Classic
VLC Media Player and Nero Showtime (after installing and setting the AC3 Filter)

Thank you for your support which is most welcome

I have been having this EXACT problem for months and did not know how to resolve until I read your post, all I did was download the AC3filter that you linked and it worked on the regular video players. THANK YOU Geo!

@musiclover10: Welcome to the forum. On behalf of geo_73 you're welcome. I'm glad search worked for you, as the thread you found is a golden oldie (over 3 years old). Some info is obviously timeless.
