    I'm trying to convert dvx to dvd (mpeg2). There is no sound when I playback the dvd even though the sound on the dvx copy is fine. I've set my audio setting to Stereo Mix (as they suggested at the AVC site). Still nothing. I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop 1545 Win XP SP3.

    Does the mpeg file playback ok?
    If you drag it into MediaInfo, does it show AC3 audio.

    No it doesn't playback OK. There is no audio. There is audio on the xvid file. I don't have Mediainfo but the audio codec listed in Any Video Converter is AC3.

    Do DVD's normally play ok on the laptop.

    In 'Any Video Converter', on the lower right, is a setting to disable the audio.
    Could it have been set inadvertently - else you will have to verify that the audio track is present using MediaInfo.

    I checked and double checked that. It was not disabled. But something very strange. I tried to convert the film with any video converter on my other Dell laptop (inspiron 6000 with xp sp3). The mpeg file played both audio and video fine...only when I burned it to a dvd (with NERO) and played it on my dvd player there was no sound!! This is so frustrating...and of course I've wasted hours of time and a dvd...grrrr

    Drag/open VTS_01_1.VOB from the disk into MediaInfo.
    File > Export, to a text file and paste it here.

    Do commercial disks play on the laptop.

    Although I think that PCM audio is legal on DVD, I'm used to seeing AC3.

    I'm not familiar with Nero, but can AC3 be selected when authoring the disk?

    I would try DVD Flick to convert the mpeg file from 'Any Video Converter'.
    Since the mpeg is DVD compliant, if you set the Project Settings, Video > Advanced to copy Mpeg2 streams, it should quickly author the DVD without re-encoding.

    I'm now trying Sothink Free Video Converter to make another DVD from the AVC mpeg file. If the problem lies with NERO then hopefully this will work. I'm still wondering why my newer Dell laptop wouldn't even play the AVC mpeg. Either a cheap card or they are purposefully trying to make it harder to burn video dvd's.

    OK, I meant to say Sothink Movie DVD Maker. Just finished burning another disc. And it works fine!! Both on dvd player and laptop. I guess my Nero xpress is worthless...and whatever sound card is in the new Dell Laptop is rubbish too. So, after wasting a whole day (hard to believe), Any Video Converter on old Dell Inspiron 6000 xp and Sothink Movie DVD Maker (free version) have finally made a workable dvd. Whew! May never know what happened (or didn't) but it's stuff like this that really makes me (and probably most of the rest of the known Universe) really annoyed.

    Thanks very much for sticking with me and for all your very helpful ideas and troubleshooting. You helped me to finally get there. Cheers.

    It may be that the new laptop needs a decent media player (MPC or VLC) instead of WMP.

    I think now that I've finally found a combo that works (on old laptop) I'll leave it at that. Must say I'm less than impressed generally by new Dell. There are many things that don't work as well as older one. Cheap parts.

    Thanks again for all your help and suggestions.
