I've tried importing the .wav file into an audio editor like
Audacity as "Raw Data", but all I get is static noise, instead of the original
In some quick searching, both UltraEdit and NotePad++ are both
mentioned as having hex editor plugins.
There also was a freeware hex editor mentioned called HXD.
How accessible any of these are, I have no idea.
secret is not to make your music louder, but to make the world

I don’t know any good hex editors, in fact for that matter I’m not sure I even
know what one is lol. But as an alternative solution , you could try
converting the broken wav file to a different file format, which makes a new
version of the sound and may fix the broken attributes too, , then you can
just re convert the file back to WAV. There are plenty of online sites that
will convert WAV to another format. I do a little programing to write audio
games, , and every now and again I’ll come across a wav file that won’t play,
in which case I just add the wav file to my music editor software , then
export it back out as a WAV file, which is doing the same as I mentioned above
, but just using the program I have, but that’s always worked in the past.
I’ve put the link for two websites below, one which converts files from
WAV to mp3, and then another which converts mp3 files to WAV. Hopefully this
fixes your issue, but if you have any problems, if it’s just one WAV file
that’s broken if you can find a way of sending me the WAV file I can always
try running it through my music editing software and seeing if that
fixes it for you. Anyways, the links are below
I found something
interesting on the Internet, about how to fix broken .wav files that won't
open in any players. Someone named Scott Hanselman said something about using
a binary file editor, specifically a Hex editor, to fix the headers. However,
I'm not sure where I can find any good Hex editors that would work with JAWS.
Anybody have any pointers? I've tried Notepad++, but all I get when I read the
file line-by-line is a bunch of weird code.
