I have an Acer 7730 only since Jan this year. I recently tried to play a dvd but if i can get it to play there is no sound on media player and if i go through acer arcade it wont play at all.
Am i doing something wrong or is the laptop rubbish or faulty.
Bearing in mind my sister has one too and she tried and has similar problems

Yes Acers are rubbish..... what region is the dvd? Are you getting a picture on the screen...download VLC media player and try that.

or i use k-lite classic media player.. has yet to fail to play any formathttp://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm and its open source..i.e. free

also update your other software players...sounds like a codec issue if you can get a picture....I take it there is nothing wrong with the computer's sound otherwise?

Double Click on the volume icon in the bottom right and make sure your CD/DVD drive volume is not on mute

Hi, sorry for not replying earlier. The keyboard is fine, its the three kids that were playing up that bought me away from the computer.
I got it to play fine with the acer arcade in the end but it wouldnt do it the other night and there is still no sound from the media player but i will try some different ones tomorrow.
Thanks for helping and ive given rep to you all

Oh and xiwt please change your avatar, im on a diet and absolutely starving
