Netflix at work

I recently signed back up for Netflix and since I'm never home, I decided to start watching my DVDs at work while I eat lunch! I started watching Mad Hot Ballroom today and it is SO cute! I can't wait to watch the rest of it! It's a documentary about NYC public school 5th graders who are taking a 10 week ballroom dancing class and it leads up to a competition. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I was having a weird problem. I am playing the DVD with Windows Media Player and the volume is very low! I checked the volume on my control panel and it was at max, my speakers were at max and so was the volume slider thing in the media player. What else could it be? Any techies out there have an idea? Is it the DVD? Should I use a different program to play it? Unfortunately, I don't have another DVD here to test to see if it's just the DVD. Is that even possible though?

This is unlikely, but when you were in the Control Panel screen, did you click on 'Advanced' in the 'Device Volume' section?

There are multiple sliders for different media types. Make sure they are all turned up (especially if one is marked 'CD Audio' or something like that.

All the sliders (including the CD Audio one) are at the max. This happened to me before and I can't remember if I fixed it or not. I have another program called Power DVD. I'll try playing the DVD through that program to see if it changes anything.
