Get VLC at http://videolan.org

That will give you a free, reliable player with all of the codecs you'd need and there's no bloatware or anything with it. It's been pretty popular for years.

It is not a device problem, it is a codec proble, install a codec pack, like K-Lite, make sure to add the codecs and filters required for dvd playing, in example, DCScaler for the video, and the recomendes for the audio, like LAV or FFmepg.

My sound on my acer aspire 5516 works fine until i put in a dvd then the sound will not work how do i turn it on ?


Double click the "speaker icon" on the right bottom bar to open the
volume control menu.

Check be sure that the check box "mute all" on the bottom of volume control
is not checked.


On an "Acer Notebook" try to press following keys combination: FN+F8

FN+ F8 : turn on / of speaker.
FN + > to increase the volume.

Good look

ACER 5516 DVD Sound does not work. Sounds works great for CDs but not for DVD. all other sound works fine.


go to my computer
right click
down to properties and click
go to hardware tab and click
click on device manager
once that opens scroll down to your cd-dvd and click the + sign
right click the player and hit uninstall
then restart your system , this should solve the issue as windows will find the hardware and re-install the correct drivers for you .

You need a new DVD codec. If you have a copy of WinDVD, give it an install. Otherwise, try the free codec on www.divx.com.
