Why is there no sound on my burned DVDs from AVI files using Windows DVD Maker? I have been using Windows DVD Maker, and have made several DVDs. All of my files are AVI files. They all burned just fine, but when I went to play them in the DVD player, there was no sound. There was sound on the preview of the DVD maker, just not on the DVD. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? What are some basic problems that would cause an AVI file to come out with no sound?
P.S: Is there any 3rd software out there that is better than Windows DVD Maker to burn AVI to DVD properly?
There are many posts about AVI audio problems throughout the Windows 7 DVD Maker community. Basically, the problem is when you burnt a DVD from AVI files but there is no sound when you play the DVD on standalone DVD players. Here are some solutions that may help your solve the problem.
• Are you able to hear the sound when you create a preview with the DVD Maker?
• Have you installed the latest drivers for your Audio device after installing Windows 7 on your computer?
You will have to install the latest drivers for your Audio device. Visit the computer or the device manufacturers’ website and install the latest driver for your Audio Device. You may refer the below article that will give you information on ‘How to Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly’.
Before you burn the DVDs from the DVD Maker, start Movie Maker and then configure Movie Maker so that the incompatible video filter is not loaded. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click All Programs.
2. Select Windows Movie Maker. When Movie Maker starts, click Tools, and then click Options.
3. Click the Compatibility tab.
In the Filters section, you may click to clear the check boxes of any third-party video filters that are not required.
NOTE: Remove or temporarily disable third party CD writing software and try to add then try to create the DVD.
Also check if you have missing codecs. Here is an article that will give you information on codecs.
Another option is to convert AVI to VOB. Some DVD players support playing VOB files directly and the audio plays perfectly. The best and most reliable video converter tool that I've ever used is a tool called Video Converter. It's able to convert all videos between various formats. Easy to use and professional.
