Specs: Windows XP, 512 mb ram
I have an HP computer windows,home edition, xp sp3. I plugged up an old hard drive to the slave, moved the white plastic thingy onto the slave position and switched plug ins on the hard drives. The computer then recognized the hard drive and I put all the pics and videos into one file folder. I then copied them to a data disc on my LG burner , It was then, on playback that I realized that there was no sound coming from the videos. I have tried to download different codecs, but most of them have viruses and microsoft doesn't provide downloads anymore. The files are mostly JPEG and a few AVI. Does anyone have any suggestions?

JPEG files don't have sound. Did you mean mpeg? If you have an external USB HD enclosure, mount it with that.

ok, I checked the properties of a few videos and they ended with an avi . would I be able to hear sound if I connected it to an external hard drive or could I posibly have something not connected right that would affect the sound. My videos play with sound so it is only the videos that I imported from the old hard drive that don't have sound

It has nothing to do with what hard drive they came from. It is the file itself that is the problem. Go to www.videolan.org and get the VLC player. It has built-in codecs that will play just about every video file format available.

You say you burned the files to a cd but you also have them on your hard drive. When you play them from the hard drive do they have souind or is it from both devices that you get no sound?
