I'm running Windows XP Media Player 11. I have sound from Music CD's and other sources but DVD's play with no sound. Any suggestions?
Also...when I put in a music CD it brings up the Itunes site and plays there by default.

sounds like codex problem,
try this player to see if it works, http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ ,if it works then you need dvd codex for media player ,did you get dvd player software with the dvd player when you bought computer ,like power dvd or some other software ,if so try install or reinstall it .

I saved the download to desktop...do I just run it now and it will install itself? Let me know and I'll give it a try. A buddy "built" this computer for me out of variuos parts...so I don't have any software for the DVD player...any way I can tell what model, etc the DVD player is and possibly track down software to make it work? Thanks for all your efforts on this...

I went to the download site...not sure which to download ( a movie codex or audio codex just to fix the sound problem?) Sorry... I'm not very good with computers.
