Do those files have DRM copy protection?
I don't think so. I have used them in Windows Movie Maker a d can play
them in Windows media player.

Why can't I use a wave file from Digital Wave Player? created by John

Is this Digital Wave Player an Olympus product?
Is there any chance that you could send a sample as a Dropbox or Google Drive link in a reply in your thread? If you do, just send something that would not invade your privacy since this is a public forum.
I have done some Internet browsing on this and was intrigued by one comment which essentially seem to imply that there are times when a wav is not a wav.
Need to follow up on that. Do you believe that you are dealing with standard PCM wav or a ADPCM wav?
Sorry I am late. Yes it is a Olympus product VN-2100PC.
I have no knowledge about Google DRive or DropBox so I don't know how to send you a link. Can you give me some information how to do that?
Thanks for the reply.
Google Drive should work fine.
Sending via Google Drive.
and click on tab for "Go to Google Drive"
2. In the workspace that opens, click on the orange tab (top left of workspace) that is named New, and then click on the choice of File Upload. In the File Upload dialog that opens, find and select the file that you want to send/upload from its computer hard drive location. Then click on Open in that dialog.
3. A thumbnail for the file will appear. Right click that thumbnail and select Share.
4. In the Share with others dialog, look to the top right to where is says "Get Shared Link", and click on that.
When you do, you will see a link appear under "Anyone with the link can view". Copy that link and post it in your post reply.
We will be watching for your progress as your time permits.
Thanks for the sending. I have downloaded the file, will be exploring within the next hour, and reporting my results.
It looks like the .wav file uses ADPCM format and is 1 channel.
To be continued
I do not see that you mentioned version of Premiere Elements and computer involved.
I started my testing with Premiere Elements 13/13.1 Windows 7 64 bit...no sound for your wav file that is described as
88.2 kbps (kilobits per second)
Although the file plays in Windows Media Player, it will not play in Premiere Elements 13/13.1
I believe the issue goes to ADPCM versus PCM. I was able to make the file usable in Premiere Elements 13/13.1, 12/12.1, and 11.
a. taking it into iTunes to convert it to WAV version with the PCM.
b. taking it into Audacity and exporting it as WAV version with PCM there.
Please consider, and then let us know the results. Any questions or need clarifications on the suggested solutions, please do not hesitate to ask.
