No sound when watching movies on TV via USB

Specs: Windows 7

I have downloaded movies on my laptop but when I transfer them to a USB to watch on my TV some play fine but others have no sound. The picture is fine. How can I get the sound to work on all movies? Thanks.

When you play the movie files on the HDD, do they play picture and sound together ?

The movie may comprize two files or more and you transfer only the picture file to the USB device, not the sound file. Or you transfer picture and sound file to the USB device but not the file that connects picture file to sound to play both.

What kind of movies are these?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

It depends on what the sound codec is, AC3 AAC? DTS. you will probably need to convert them to something else.

I use Format Factory.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

@suatcini - Some movies play fine (picture and sound) but most will only show the picture and no sound. I copy the entire folder over to the USB so all files will be on the USB

@jefro - They are downloaded movies from the internet

@clive_pearce - I'm a bit of a computer novice. I have tried Any Video Converter but it still didn't work. I'm sure I've done something wrong.

Here is the manual for my TV. On page 32 it gives the supported file formats.

What settings should I have for coverting with File Factory?

Where did you download the movies from. Can you be more specific?

Page 32, tells you the supported codecs.

Use, Format Factory or similar to change the audio to one of those.

King_eric,

You did not answer my first question. Do the downloaded movie files play well while on HDD ? I ask this because, if these files play on the HDD, then there may be some configuration files, such as .ini files, that point to a path in them like C:\Users\..... When you move the files to USB, the association might get lost. If this is the case, then you can edit the .ini files to point to new location of the USB drive, indicating the drive letter of the USB drive and the folder, etc. the movie files are in.

The audio bit rate is too high for the TV. I have two TVs. Both TVs play video fine but only one of them plays the audio. It seems the slightly older TV can not handle high audio bit rates. You can use a video converter program to convert the video and reduce the audio bit rate. This should take about 20mins.

to check the audio bit rate of your file. Right click the file - properties - details.video with a high audio bit rate of 448kbps will not play on the slightly older TV. Bit rates seem to vary from video to video.
