I just installed my first DVD burner (BENQ DW1655), and I’m definitely a newbie, so please bear with me here.
Anyway, upon popping in the first commercial DVD I tried to play using WMP 9, the video plays, but there is no audio. I’ve tried 5 or so different DVDs including one non commercial DVD+R with the same result.
Does it have something to do with some audio/video codec that I either don’t have or that I have f****d up by deleting something somewhere when I shouldn’t have?
Also, I don’t know if this has anything to do with anything, but I have Nero 6 Ultra Edition and when I try to use Showtime (Nero’s player) to play a DVD, I get this error screen popup.
Showtime won’t even play the video without the audio. I get the error screen each time I try to play a DVD. However, video files that I have on the harddrive: .mpg’s, .mpeg’s, etc still play just fine as before.
Even if WMP sucks, shouldn’t Nero’s Showtime player work just fine for playback of DVD’s. Hell, I thought that was its basic purpose.
Newb on the loose,
