DVD player audio issue (Win2k) / MPEG-2 Driver

    I'm using Win2K and used to play commercial movie DVDs using DVDplay.exe, Roxio
    Creator Player etc.
    Recently I have installed and uninstalled Nimo DivX Xdiv drivers, and then it
    caused DVDplay.exe (& Roxio Creator) to play the DVD's video but without the
    audio (otherwise sound is OK on my computer). I would guess something's wrong
    with the MPEG2 audio driver or its configuration.

    Now, on login, and whenever I launch DVDplay.exe or Roxio player etc., I get the
    following message:
    "While setting up DVD-Video playback, it was found that
    * Audio will not be available during the playback, because the audio device
    and/or driver is not working. Please make sure that the audio device works
    properly."

    The DVD drive seems to be OK, and I can see the video, but cannot hear any
    audio.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled MediaPlayer 9.0 and ActiveX, DirectShow, but
    no luck, the problem sustained.

    Can anyone suggest any solution.

    Thanks,
    DrDSP

    Well, it's the AC3 audio filter that's missing. Nimo obviously
    replaced what DVDPlay and/or Roxio had installed. When removing
    Nimo, it ungraciously did not reinstate whatever it had
    replaced. Chances are, reinstalling either of your DVD Player
    packages will do it for you. If not, you can find an AC3 filter
    at SourceForge.

    Sonic Foundry no longer exists. It was bought by Sony Software. Sound
    Forge is the audio product.

    Thanks for that !
    I should have included a link, I guess.

    My apologies...reading too fast. Vegas also has an AC3 optional component.
