DVD player audio codes are not installed

I have installed a Liteon DVD writer that when I play a CD I get sound, but when I play a DVD all I get is the video but no sound; it is the LH-20A1H.

I have been told that this usually happens if you've never had a dvd player before or a clean install of windows, and that the audio codes are not installed.

I went to www.afterdawn.com and download the ac3filter for media player I was told that this will work in Nero 7 Essentials. Still no audio can any one help
