Windows 7: Need help recovering device disconnect sound feature

Need help recovering device disconnect sound feature

Windows 7 Pro


I know this may sound silly but the choice of device disconnect sound is missing from my Control Panel.
It is on my other computers.


Wonder if anyone can suggest a way to put it back short of reinstalling Windows?


I like it for when I disconnect an external USB drive.


Thanks for reading this.

I'm trying to be sure I have Windows 7 pro.
The Windows DVD says my version is not compatible with the DVD.
Can't believe it.

Is the problem because you have set a custom Sound Scheme? Maybe the default Sound Scheme will bring the list up again.

Also worth a check. Look in \Windows\media directory for the presence of a "Hardware Remove" sound file.

I'll give it a try BUT the same scheme in on all five of my computer have a sort of custom scheme and they have a requirement for disconnect USB device.


I have come to believe that the missing thing is not worth worrying about.


Thanks for checking in.
