Sound Distortion with EMPREX DVD-RW

  BaronRage 21:11 12 Aug 07

Any suggestions as to why the sound would suddenly become distorted when i play genuine DVDs in my optical drive? And any ways to rectify the issue?

Points to consider:

Drive is less than 12months old.
Discs are clean and in some cases new.
Ive tried cleaning the lense with my lense cleaning disc - the sound on that was distorted.
Plays DVD games fine with no sound issues that i can detect.
Sounds from downloaded files and other content play fine.
Audio files from my hard drive play fine.
Audio CDs in the DVD drive are distorted too.

I have moved the PC a couple of weeks ago and detected nothing wrong. Could a bang (not that im sure one has occured) to the Pc have coused this? Ive check the wiring and nothing was loose.

Please help because its currently the only way i watch DVDs as my PS2 has issues with them too (selectively chosing which to play...)

Thanks guys and gals

Have you looked inside to see if the ribbon cables (assuming that is the type in use) are fully home at each end, possible they might have come partially loose during the move.
