Lost Sound

Question

Hi.

 

 

Hi have a similar problem. I get an excellent picture but no sound. There are no error messages. I have a downloaded .avi file of 1.4GB. The file plays perfectly via the computer on Windows and Nero. Everything is done correctly in setting up for adding the file and burning. There is, however, no sound on the finished DVD. There is no problem playing a completely finished DVD that has been put in either disc drive. For burning DVDs I use a Plextor 760SA. I have Roxio Creator 2009.

I have now tried to burn three different .avi files to DVD and the same problem is there. The Video Copy and Convert shows everything going through 100%. The end result is an excellent video without sound. It will not play in any CD/DVD player. Is there some special formatting that I'm missing? Am I using the correct ROXIO application? Is there someone out there who can help?

File size is not important, it is the length of time of the video that is the important parameter when creating DVDs.

The best program to use for creating DVDs is myDVD (Create DVDs).

 

These statements are a bit confusing: "There is, however, no sound on the finished DVD. There is no problem playing a completely finished DVD that has been put in either disc drive." On the one hand you say there is no problem playing a finished DVD and on the other hand you state there is no sound. Could you clear up what that is supposed to mean?

Sorry for the confusion.

 

The file in question that I'm burning with ROXIO does not have sound when played when inserted in a disc drive on the computer or any cd/dvd player. A DVD that has been made with my Pioneer LX60, put into the disc drive will play sound. My point is that the drives and CD/dvd players are not the problem.

 

I know the file size is not necessarily the key issue. This video is 2h;29m. I'm having the same problem with another avi file that is 1h:10m and 640.000mb

There are a few things to consider here

 

First - the source of the avi file (if it's a rip of a commercial movie, it's illegal and any discussion has to end here and now)

 

Second - are you encoding it to playable DVD format or simply copying it as an avi? Some players won't play those

 

Third - the avi may be 'protected' in such a way that you lose the sound

 

Fourth - the media you use is also important. A lot of DVD players will NOT play cheap media (use Verbatim or Taiyo-Yuden/JVC)
