I would recommend a player like WinDVD or PowerDVD(others will prolly chime in with other suggestions). Both have(its been a while since I've used either) lots of sound options, like Dolby Headphone Surround and such. I've tried using Windows Media Player for playing dvds and have always come away frustrated with its lack of functionality.
Anywho, back to windows media player. I would look to see if there is some sort of surround sound settings, and make sure it is set to stereo. It really sounds like you are just listening to your right and left channels, and the center channel is not being reproduced. This would result in voices being very quiet and the music being very loud.
Has this always been a problem? Or did it just start recently? Maybe we can track it back to a setting that's been changed.
