    my dad has installed WinDVD 5 Platinum on to a 1700MHz Celeron, 128Mb DDR

    it plays dvds seamlessly but his sound doesn't work? the driver is installed and updated and all other sound works, its just WinDVD 5?


    any ideas why?

    I've never used WinDVD before, but some other apps I've used in the past for some reason have the Audio track set to disabled by default and therefore you're required to select Audio > Track1 from the menu.

    As I say, I've never used WinDVD.. do all the options/preferences appear to be in order?

    Check the settings and make sure it is either set to directsound or wave rather than spdif etc.

    uninstall winDVD then reinstall power DVD, i read there can be a codec conflict if both are installed

    A conflict would occur if you had both installed and then tried to use their codecs in wmp, but wouldn't in the applications themselves.

    What audio card do you have?
