As a first-step test, can you confirm that the Audio Mixer is showing no Levels activity during playback?
If you do not get Levels activity on the meters, check the sliders there please.
One can Mute Audio Tracks in several places: in the Audio Mixer, and in the Audio Track's Header. Check both of those locations, please.
Next step, do you have a Waveform Display in the Audio Track's Clip(s)? If not, perhaps this article will be helpful: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/726693?tstart=30
If you have still not restored the Audio, then it's probably time to give us the full specs. of the files with the Audio.
yes you were right I had a mute on the audio audio mixer
Duh! sorry about that
But Its all been one head ache getting my settings back..
my WIN 7 64 did not start again after a windows update recently
I had to reinstall everything (for about the 100th time in my life)
Wonderful operating system windows...
Now I have an issue with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 that will not
allow mercury payback engine any more (I have reinstalled the drivers from nvidia)
I actually get a blue screen of death !
If I use software only it works but it still bugs..
This is a core i7 intel with 6G ram
Seriously thinking of getting a mac !
Anyway no hassle I will sort it out thanks for your help
Glad that it was a Mute Audio issue.
As for the nVidia, is that card directly supported? If not, then you will need to add it to the Text file for the supported cards, and will need to do so with each PrPro update - do not know about when you update the OS, or the nVidia drivers, but others can direct you there.
As for the BSOD, the cause is most often hardware related, though conflicts with low-level drivers and the OS can cause them too. A BSOD is a serious problem, and I would address its cause, before doing anything else. This article might be useful in troubleshooting the cause: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3465303#3465303
Probably the card has a defect its an old one now..
I will get on to it
But yes it is compatible that is why I bought it.
I have been able to complete my video.
Thanks for your prompt and helpful
Yes I know I tried CS5 on a mac and did not see any difference
apart from the price..
Moving to mac would mean using final cut
Final Cut Pro, either 7 or X, would both be something of a step backwards at this point.
