Here's the solution to your problem:

Copy this text into notepad (starting with Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00) and save it to your desktop using the name "missing.reg":

I tried adding this and when I attempt to import to the registry: "This is not a registry file." I am using the diabolical Windows 7; perhaps that's why it doesn't work
Suzana2012 3 Posts Saturday November 10, 2012Registration date November 10, 2012 Last seen - Nov 10, 2012 at 09:12 AM
More accurately, I get this message: "The specified file is not a registry file."
Allie, thank you so much from 2017 for posting this - saved my senior management webcast participation today:)
Thank you SO MUCH!!! works exactly like you said, and it was easy to follow. I can finally stream Netflix in peace!
So far so good - it all seems to be working perfectly. I can hardly believe it!!!!

ive been there and done everything to fix the sound in my internet...in youtube for example...Im not sure if this one will help you but ive tried it and worked for me....First thing you'll do...Open CONTROL PANEL. SOUND,SPEECH AND AUDIO DEVICE. And click Adjust the system volume...In VOLUME if you can see NO AUDIO DEVICE...Click VOLUME...AND change the Default device name...for example Moden #0 line Playback is in there change it to Realtek AC97 Audio ( im using windows xp) or you audio device...change also the Sound recording to Realtek AC97 Audio and click Apply...and thats it...open a video try if it has a sound...I hope I've helped

The below is an accumulation of two fixes that work and some clarifications that may be useful for some. hope it woiks.






1. do search for msacm32.drv in Windows folder
2. ensure that the above file (msacm32.drv) is at least in your Windows\Sysytem32 folder. If it is go to step #9
3. If it isn't, but there is a copy somewhere else...copy it to the Windows\system32 folder.
4. if it's not in \windows at all, do a search of My Computer. If you find it, copy it to your Windows\system32 folder.
5. if you can't find it anywhere, go to another computer with Windows XP installed on it...and search>copy to floppy or usb or cd or dvd>then copy it to your computer.
6. if you don't know anyone that has a computer with XP on it, you can get it from your installation cd. Google how you do that.

7. test out for sound on internet...utube is a good place to test with.
8. If msacm32.drv was in your Windows\32 folder (or you put it there) and still no joy...read on
9. right click and >copy< the text below. NOTE: COPY FROM the word Windows below all the way to "aux3"="wdmaud.drv". Include from the word Windows to "aux3"="wdmaud.drv" in your copy. In other words, copy everything (change nothing) starting after the big space below this sentence and all the way to "aux3"="wdmaud.drv".

If you've copied this too, you've gone too far

10. Open a new notepad document (or use any regular word processor).
11. right click and choose paste. You should now see what you copied from above.
12. Go to File, choose save as. Save as "missing.reg" to your desktop (or anywhere you like, it's easiest to find on the desktop is all).
13. NOTE********VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.

YOU MUST INCLUDE THE QUOTATION MARKS RIGHT IN THE NAME OR IT WON'T BE IDENTIFIED AS A REG FILE. IT MAY LOOK AS THOUGH I'VE JUST USED THE QUOTES FOR EFFECT, BUT YOU MUST TYPE THEM WHEN YOU TYPE THE NAME INTO THE FILENAME BOX.

14. Navigate to your desktop and double click on the new missing.reg file. A dialogue box should come up askinf if you are sure...Yada Yada.

15. choose Yes or OK or whatever.
16. If you get confirmation that the values were added to the registry....go test out on Utube again.
Brill - found I had msacm32.dll but not msacm32.drv in Registry. Pasted a copy of msacm32.drv & internet & system sound returned without rebooting. Many thanks. Tony

The msacm32.drv file does exist in the Windows\System32 folder. I tried the second fix and I get an error message saying it could not import the missing file because it is not a registry script. To date I still can not get youtube audio I can get all the other web video audio though..

Hi,

Finally all working!

I tried the wavemapper stuff - didn't work
I tried the huge registry edit dump from this post - didn't work

This did.

My symptom: All browsers don't play sound with certain video streams. Flash videos were ok but most other video wasn't including media player embedded pages.

Solution:

Go to the following registry folder: (type regedit under run command in windows)

goto

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\NodeCLSIDs\{95037DA1-6ED9-4B27-8CFF-9AD3DFB0B2F2}]

double click on 'Auto Insert" on the right side of the box.

Change the Value from "1" to "0" and click OK.


Hope this works!
This little piece of genius above finally fixed my lack of sound on talksport.net. No idea what it actually means but it definitely worked??!! Nice one Woods!

When I attempt to import this file into the registry I keep getting "This is not a registry file." Yes, it's in notepad. Yes, it's called "Missing.reg"--without the quotes, right?

All you have to do is to uninstall your audio driver, restart and then install it again. You don't have to import any registry keys or any other things but just do what I said in the first sentence. Got it? Thanks.

Just to tell you, you need to include the "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" at the very beginning of the notepad file

so it's like:
"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
blah blah blah
blah blah
blah"

except without the " " and the blah blahs replaced with the actual DataTypeX.

In total it should look EXACTLY like this:

ensure and verify that the msacm32.drv driver file is existing in C:\Windows\System32 folder. If the file is missing in that location, search for another copy of msacm32.drv in the computer, or better yet copy that file from another system. then paste it into your system.

don't know why everyone's calling me alli

if you look at your post you'll see that missing. reg is spelled missing.rge

not sure if it was when you saved it, but if it was it wouldn't have worked. Also, you must include the quotemarks when you name it. Then it will be identified as a true Reg file. type it exactly as below



"missing.reg"


hope this helps. it's like Christmas when you get the noise back :)
