I bought a new Sony VAIO FE Series Laptop 9 months ago. I had DivX movies so I downloaded the "DivX" software to play my movies. It worked well for 2 months, then one day I open "DivX Player" and I get this message: "You may need an additional audio decoder to play the soundtrack of this file. This file contains a track in the MPEG-1 Layer-3 Audio(mp3) (code "85" format)....." So, I searched google for an audio decoder, I found one radomly called "ffd show" to configure the sound. This decoder helped, but the sound sounded very artificial (the movies had a robot or echo type of sound). It was the only choice I had if I wanted to at least make the sound work. Help! It has now been two months I've had this codec and I now get the same previous error message from the DivX player, and the sound on my laptop doesn't even work anymore!!! I'm back to the problem I had a couple months ago(but the nice thing is that a few months ago the sound worked on my laptop even without the audio codec). So now I can't listen to music on my computer (iTunes can't detect sound!) How can I fix this problem??? Can anyone recommend me a good audio decoder to download? Is this problem coming from my laptop speakers?? (I turned up the volume to maximum and still no sound comes out), and external speakers don't work.
