I just bought EF2 today but when I played it none of the music would play and some of the cinematic sounds won't play either. In the console window it just says "cannot play sound/music/nameoffile.mp3". All my drivers are up to date and my specs are well over the minimum requirements.

Thats as well as maybe, but it dose look like your sound card. Please post some specs and facts, Then i might be able to help you, rather than taking a shot in the dark.
Here are my specs: Pentium IV 2.8 GHz 640MB RAM Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti4600 Soundblaster Live! Sound Card 40GB Primary Drive 80GB Secondary Drive Windows XP Pro
Some of the sounds just wont play. The game still runs but when In look at the console Window it just says "Cannot load sound/music/filename.mp3"
Make sure you have Creative's EAX turned off (in there Audio HQ) and make sure that in EF2's audio options, that EAX is swiched on (not EAX 2 or 3, unless your sound card dose support that (wich it dosent)). Also make sure Reverb is swiched off if you have and effect on in Audio HQ.
Hey it could also be windows XP too. EF1 Didnt do very well on XP and EF2 is on the same driver so its just a hunch. is file trekkers didnt work.
Ok I tried the EAX thing and that didn't work. I don't think it's XP because EF1 runs fine on it. I just called customer services and they were clueless as with what to do.
Is there an option called MP3 or WAV/MP3 in your volume control? See if thats working fine. Can your PC play MP3's normaly? If they cant i would suspect its a hardware problem. Get an engnier or an expert to make sure the card is fully "grounded" in its slot, and also run some Creative Diagnostics to see if that turns up any solutions.
