    We all r used to listen MSN sounds e.g incoming e-mail,signing of our
    friends on MSN.Can we change these sounds to play in another sound
    instead of default in the system?

    Well, the control panel applet doesn't want to let you have access to
    ..mp3 files in c:\windows\media

    I tried setting




    and when I went into the control panel/ sound /windows sounds and
    tried to play the sound for "Question", I got "Windows cannot play the
    a.mp3 file. It may be damaged or may not be a valid sound file.
    Replace the file and try again."

    So it would appear that whatever mechanism plays events sounds in
    Windows cannot handle MP3's.

    Why not use a program which converts MP3's to WAV's? An event file
    can't be THAT big because you don't want more than a few seconds of
    sound. The biggest Windows events file I have is a Pink Floyd "welcome
    to the machine" (100K) for startup and a Porky Pig "That's all folks"
    (35K) for exiting windows.
