    Default VLC Media Player V3.011 Sound failure

    Last night I played 2 DVD s using my external DVD player.
    Tonight i went to watch the next episode of those discs but the sound keeps resetting to zero. The Speaker Icon in Task Bar shows a volume setting OK.
    When I click on the externa Drive to play with VLC the slide bar (not the speaker icon) shows white = 0%. I drag it to a suitable volume % but it immediately slides back to 0%.

    In desperation I thought i should try a System restore only to find that a Restore point i created about 2 weeks ago no longer appears.

    On my Hard disc I have several Video Clips and they play with full sound as per normal.

    Help please

    thanks

    Many thanks ,Wainui.
    That makes sense . Last night I was able to watch and listen (the sliding back to Zero did not occur).
    I have a wireless mouse but same principle as a cable i guess.
    Regards

    Hi Wainui
    FYI I yesterday "lashed out": and spent $25 on a new Microsoft Wireless mouse.
    Items now work as expected which confirms what you suggested in your post

    regards
