Re: my computer no longer plays wave files


You may want to reinstall your codecs just in case the one Media
player and VLC has become corrupted. You can get the K-lite codec
pack from this website:

play, you never know.

But as to how to solve the underlying problem, I don't know.

Subject: [TechTalk] my computer no longer plays wave files

Hi, Listers,

I am using a computer running Win 7. For whatever reason, it no longer will

let me play wave files. This is NOT an association problem. Media Player is

the default program for playing wave files. I also tried VLC, and wave files

still do not play.

I installed CCleaner Professional and wondered if something in that software

cased the problem. I uninstalled it. No luck. Next, I chose a system restore

point which was earlier than the date when Cclear was installed. No good.

There is where I am now. I do a lot with wave files. My CD collection is now

on an external hard drive, backed up with another drive.

In case it means anything, Goldwave permits me to play wave files, but I
don't think there's a way to play all the files in a folder. That is what I

would have to do in order to play a CDE.

I thank you for any way to resolve my dilemma.
