DVD Burner And DVD ROM Play CD's & Video, But No Audio From DVD's



My neighbor asked me to look at his Dell desktop. It has a LiteOn DVD-RW and a DVD-ROM. Both of them play CD’s, and both of them play the video portion of DVD’s, but neither of them gives an audio output from a DVD.

This is weird. AFIK, if a drive plays audio from one type of disk, I can’t think of a reason it shouldn’t play audio from another.

Any help appreciated. :slight_smile:


You probably don’t have the right Audio Codec’s installed.

Download VLC player and try it because it comes packed will the appropriate codec’s.
