WAV files is raw representation of audio file. So when the header
is corrupt, a software might still be able to play it out and then
save it with correct information.
In your case, I guess the problem is more serious. Not only the
header is missing but also the file content.
You can try send it to me for quick inspection but I cannot

What's interesting is,
when I look at the Properties dialog box of the file, there
are bits of information missing, such as "Length", "Bit
Rate", "Size", and "Owner". How do I fix that?
in which case I’m not sure how to fix it, since Audacity is
what I would have used myself to try and import and then
export with, you mentioned you’ve tried importing it as raw
data, I don’t know too much about this, but if you try and
play it in raw data format in audacity it won’t work if its
corrupt, you would then need to go to export as audio and
then save it somewhere making sure in the save as window you
have selected file type as WAV. Then find the file you’ve
just saved and see if that plays correctly. Unfortunately
other than that I’m not too sure of anything else I can
suggest to help,, sorry. Hope you manage to get it all
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 audio.

Subject: Re: Any good Hex Editors?
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.

Although 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

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.
