You May Be Unable to Hear Recorded .wav Files Using a SoundBlaster or Avance Logic Sound Card


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional


When you use the Windows 2000 Sndrec32.exe utility to record a .wav file, and then play back the .wav file using the Mplay32.exe or the Mplayer2.exe utilities, you may be unable to hear the recorded audio.


This issue can occur if the sound card driver does not have wave (.wav) input. Because of this, the audio is recorded through the microphone of your Windows 2000-based computer at a very low volume, possibly making it difficult to hear.


To resolve this issue, contact your sound card manufacturer to inquire about the availability of a fix for this issue.
