No sound when burning avi to dvd.

Hey There,
Just got a new machine with Windows 7, burned 2 dvd's from avi files and they worked fine, now when i use Windows to burn a dvd from an avi (even tried one of the ones that had worked previously), I get no audio on the DVD, and it doesn't matter if I watch it on the computer or in a DVD player. The avi plays fine on the PC ... Any help appreciated!

Hi and welcome


What are you using to burn the dvd?

type device manager in search go to the sound tab. Is your device listed there? does it have a yellow triangle on it? are there any other "unknown" devices with yellow on them

Try burning with this program ( DVD Flick ). If it is still not working, then we have to look for a system setting problem.

Everything is fine with the hardware.
I was really hoping to be able to use the native support in Windows to burn the movies as its quite simple for my mother to learn.
Not sure about the codec, how would I find that info?

I get the feeling that it was a windows update that caused the issue, but just not sure which one ... just a thought

Bingo, Windows DVD Maker while good at what it does, is too limited in the formats that it supports. As whs linked to, give DVD Flick a try. Much more robust program than WDM and not very hard to use,

DVD-Guides.com - How to convert any video format to DVD using DVD Flick

For the most part it is just a matter of selecting the file you want to convert and letting it do its thing. The default settings in are enough to go on for a basic conversion, only need to get into the advanced settings if you want to get fancy.

Funny it worked for the first two burns, and then quit. I'll give the DVD Flick a try and let you know.

Thanks for the replies.

DVD Flick worked great.
Still curious as to why the native windows dvd maker stopped working, oh well, its working anyway.
Thanks again!
