    Yeah the location hasn't changed I've known that to happen before when you delete, rename or move a sound file but this one came with XP and is stored in the MEDIA folder on C:\ so I wouldn't have moved it.

    Woah I never realised how old you were until I saw your photo, I'm 16 and it's usually middle age people on here. Your english is great. I wish I could speak as good dutch! I saw a QuickTime movie of a dutch advert called De Euro - ons geld the one they showed in 2001 in run up to January 1st and thought it sounded really cool. How old are you?

    20 guilders is worth about 10euro, yh juliana was the previous queen. funny you should ask cos the queen was at my school to open the new building.

    try assignign a different sound to it and see if that works.

    I changed it to the critical battery sound and it still didn't make a sound.

    Woah cool, did you get to talk to her? Our queen would never open a school or anything like that, she doesn't even answer her own letters, some one writes back on her behalf! How long have you been in Holland?

    Yeah other sounds work fine.

    What do they refer to her as? Queens and Kings seem to be a lot more laid back in other countries in Denmark the royal family go shopping in CopenHagen like normal people.
