Old wav files do not play properly
Posted on 2015-02-13
I have some old .wav files going back 7 or more years. I try to play them in media player and it displays the file and plays it, but there is NO audio. I tried them in my Wavepad sound editor and it displays, shows the waveform, appears to play it with the VU meters moving, BUT no sound. I play it in Media Monkey, same thing, NO audio. HOWEVER, I play it in iTunes and it works! I am using a Soundblaster Audigy card. I would say it has something to do with audio codecs, but why does it play in iTunes and nothing else? Any ideas on what to do? Some of these wav files I may not find again.
