Media Player as my DVD player, but there is no audio
output. I downloaded an update as well to get upgraded
top media player 9, but there's still no audio/sound.

any ideas?

cheers,

You need some other dvd playing software installed such as power dvd, media
player does not come with the neccessary decoder.

player for XP comes complete with decoder and codecs but
I get picture with no sound.I have tried reloading Media
player,downloading codecs and decoder from M/soft but can
still not get sound.The MSI DVD player that came with the
computer works fine.
Sorry I can't help but I do sypathise.
