    No Sound with Windows Movie Maker


    Relatively new laptop, Toshiba Satellite P75-A7100, love it. Windows 8, getting used to it.

    I like to make "movies" with Movie Maker of my pix and scrapbook pages, etc. and I create an annual slide show for our ACS Relay For Life. Downloaded Windows Essentials because I like and am most familiar with Movie Maker.

    Created a new project, added jpgs, added mp3s. Worked fine................and then it didn't. Jpgs are still there, project is saved, looks like music is there, but no sound will come out.

    PLEASE HELP....Relay is FRIDAY!

    I've had that problem while using Movie maker, as well as Sony Vegas Pro 11. I fixed it by going into my recording devices, disabling everything I'm not using, disabling what I AM using, and re-enabling it. Another thing you can do, is go to you sound devices and click the "Communications" tab and check "Do Nothing". That was my main problem.
