    After Effects will not register any sound files.

      Problem - When ever i bring a sound file or any file that contains sound into AE, the sound is non existent.

      Below is a link to a image so you can see what i mean

      As you can see, the wave file has no option to mute the file. I can not use the drop down arrow to view the wave length since the file is empty.

       

       

      History - Just recently the computer i work on at my workplace was hit with a trojan and we had to do a reformat and install everything again.

      Prior to this i had been working on numerous projects that ranged fro 15 secs to 2 mins.

      All of these projects used .wav files for sound and in some cases a .mov was present in which i would simply hide the video and have the sound running.

       

      I have tried using every sound or mov file that i had used in the past for projects that worked but the same result keeps appearing.

      After Effects CS4

       

       

      Updated : I opened a old project that had a .mov with sound in it and the sound icon was their to mute the .mov.

      When i tried to ram preview the following error came up.
