Go Here and download the HD driver named:

[b]Via Hd Audio Codec VT1708 Paired With VT8237A/VT8251/CX700(M)

This is the Audio driver for your MOBO

Please let me know how it works :)

Congratulations for sound being returned.
Now for dvd issue. Can you please re-explain that as I'm not sure what is happening.
Can you burn dvd's or cd's at all even with a new disk?

When you put in a dvd does it play or do you get a error message?
If so what is the error it gives you?

Please don't PM me as I am not always here. I have been here for over 18 hours so I'm a little slower now :)

What are you burning that is over 2 gigs and what program are you using that won't work?
If dvd's play then the drive is seeing them. your problem sounds more like software not seeing dvd's correctly

Nero should have no problems with burning files as I use it and have burned home movies up to 4.2 gigs in size with no problem.
What format are the movies in?
Mov, Avi, Divx, WMF

Also you have to change the setting in Nero to tell it if you are using Cd's or DVD's
