Windows 7: Sound Effects

Sound Effects

Hello,


For DRM Audio the Audio Manager (AM) contains the Sound folder for sound effects, which in my case is empty.

Whenever files transferred/deleted etc. no sound.
Otherwise the AM functionality is unaffected.


How do I regain the full functionality, including the sound effects?


Thank you
barsim

Hi Paul,



The solution is very simple: the new AM did away with the Sound folder that contains the effect files, later the Audible. com (Amazon company) removed the older users' sound effect files, leaving the Sound folder in place.

This is a proven solution: Download the new AM, Apps for Listening to Audible Audiobooks | Audible.com, in the Edit/Option enable Sondeffects, if they are missing Download them, too.
