    What am I missing? I’ve been using Vegas for years. It won’t take a .wav file on the timeline. How do I make it happen. TIA

    VEGAS Pro version and build?

    have you try full resetting and delete cache ? (hold Ctrl+Shift while running VEGAS Pro until dialog box appear and checkmark to delete cache)

    Is your problem with a specific .wav file or any wave file? Have you tried another file you know works ok?

    Perhaps the Wav is in a unusual format (24-bit, Big-Endian). Open it in MediaInfo (https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download – when you first run it it will offer to become a r.click option in Windows File Explorer – very convenient) and report back. Here’s the Text-format report for a typical Signed 16-bit Little-Endian Wav file :
