PC Help Needed - PC Plays DVDs But Not The Audio From Them

As of about a week ago, my pc has stopped playing the audio from DVDs only. It plays all other audio and video (even the DVD's video) but not the DVD audio.

I've re-installed my sound card drivers and i've got the codecs and it still won't work.

Recently, i started messing with a new microphone and the sound settings in control panel so i assume it's something that's happened around then but i cant find anything that seems to be wrong.

I've got Vista.

Anyone got any ideas?

Windows Media Center. Don't need another program with Vista.

i think it maybe something to do with the ac3 filter

best thing to do is install the kazza mega codec pack

basically if this is installed it adds all the codecs to play nearly any movie, audio

should do the trick

you tried playing them on powerdvd or another program

uninstall roxio/sonic programs- they tend to share files with other programs and mess up things
