I'm using a new computer with Windows 7. When a DVD is played, I can't hear the character's dialog when speaking. I hear all the other sounds, such as music, background noise, etc., but when the characters speak I don't hear their voices!

How do I correct this?
Thank you for your assistance!

Check your audio settings and make sure it's set to a single speaker or stereo. If it's set to 5.1 surround or something and you don't actually have that type of setup, some sounds may be missing.

Assuming you are using stereo speakers, make sure that you are not playing hte 5.1 Dolby/DTS audio track. This may cause some voices to vanish.

Thanks, Hawkeye22! That did the trick! My setting was on 7.1. How it got that way I've no idea, but I reset it to 2.1, my normal setting, and it works fine now. Thanks a bunch!

Hey Gamerk316, I took your and Hawkeye22's suggestion and reset my speakers to 2.1 (it was on 7.1 for some reason!) and now it works perfectly! Thank you much!

Try using the VLC media player

Hey WR2, even though I discovered that the player wasn't the problem (it was my speakers being set to 7.1, instead of 2.1), I downloaded the VLC Player and I love it!

I'll use it to play my DVD's as I actually like it better than Windows Media Player. Thanks for the heads-up!
