    Hello everyone

    I'm having a bit of a problem playing DVDs on my PC in that there is no sound! This seems to be a recent problem because I have previously been able to play DVDs (both official and copied) on my PC with sound. As far as I am aware I haven't changed anything on the PC to cause this. I mentioned this to one of my friends yesterday and he said his laptop suddenly lost the ability to play DVD sound too, so I presume it isn't an uncommon occurrence.

    I can play audio CDs with no problem, using either of my CD/DVD devices. I have tried DVDs using Windows Media and Real Player, but there is no sound. This is the case with both official DVDs and copied DVDs. I can play anything from the hard drive and get sound, so the problem is isolated specifically to DVDs.

    My devices are an NEC DVD/RW ND2510-A and a TSSTcorp DVD ROM TS-H352A. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers via XP, but this didn't help. The helpful information in Device Manager says 'This devices is working properly' as it always ever seems to do.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks very much,

    Mike
