    Help!! I seem to have lost all my "sounds"..such as " youve got mail" etc etc...when I go to Control Panel and then Sounds and Multi Media and I pick a sound and click on the "listen" button I get the following response..."Windows cannot play C:\My Documents\MidiWav......" The file may be damaged or may use an unrecognized compression format. To resolve this oroblem replace the file or use Add/Remove programs in Control Panel to install Audio Compression. what does this all mean? went to Add/Remove programs but not sure what I am supposed to do?? Helpppppppppp please.....I have NO sound FX at all!!!

    I doubt all you sounds are in my documents, seems like it's looking in the wrong directory.

    try exploring your hard drive, find a .wav file right click, choose play, does the sound play.

    You could try what your doing but use the browse button to select the file rather than have it go to my documents.

    Most windows sound files are kept in the c:\windows\media directory, not my documents.
