If DVD playback fails or you have no sound, first verify that you can play ordinary audio in Media Center. Play an audio track and if you can hear it, continue to the next troubleshooting section. If you can't hear any audio, check out this link first.

  1. Go to Tools / Options / Video from the Media Center main menu and adjust the following options:
    1. Audio for Video, DVD, & Television
      1. First make sure audio works then set video to the same
      2. tell us what connection you're using
      3. check dsp settings if using "same as audio" especially "output format" page (trial and error)
      4. if sound stutters, reduce buffering, or try using default windows playback device
    2. Decoders, Renderers, & More
      1. Select DVD Video (iof,vob) from the drop list.
      2. Playback Method should be set to Automatic.
      3. Audio Decoders should normally be set to automatic, but you can try explicitly selecting either ffdshow (analog or digital) or Microsoft (digital only) if you are having problems.
      4. Video Decoders should normally be set to automatic, but you can try explicitly selecting either ffdshow or Microsoft if you're having problems.
      5. Video Renderer should be set to automatic. In rare cases selecting Video Mixing Renderer 9 or one of the others may help.
    3. under decoders, etc. pick DVD
      1. automatic
      2. automatic, then vmr9
