I can hear MP3 files and background music so my speakers work fine. But I can't hear WAV files! Help please!

P.S: I'm using Windows Media Player but when I use Quicktime and any other program the wav files work fine.

Open Control Panel and double click on "Folder Options". Under the "File Types" tab, scroll down in the list to WAV and click on it. What program is currently assoiated with it?

That looks good.

Do you get an error message when you try to play a wav file or does it play and you just can't hear it?

Guys, duplicate file deleter is amazing, i highly recommend that you can try to delete the unused files and duplicate ones & try again..

Good Luck
