The newest minecraft client will not download the resources folder, which contains sound and music, but it can still play the sounds if the folder is actually there. 

Just download the folder from either of these links and unrar them into the .minecraft folder:
Windows XP users: the folder should be put at "Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\.minecraft"
Windows Vista/7: "C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft"
I took them from Alpha 1.0.17
Have fun with sound (:

I downloaded the biggest of

I downloaded the biggest of those files, but I don't know where to put it, cause I have only Minecraft.exe on desktop and it ignores if I put that folder in the same place as exe. So, where I have to put that "resources" folder, to make these sounds work?

You should put the folder

You should put the folder at "Documents and Settings/<user name>/Application Data/.minecraft" if you're on Windows XP, if not, check the topic later, I'll add the path for other OS's soon.

Windows 7

You need to find the "resources" folder. It's in:

C:\Users\"user name"\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft

Hope it helps. =)

No Sound Still

Done as instructed (with both just the Sound and the Sound + Music files) on a Windows 7 machine, but for some reason still no sound once extracted and placed into the correct area.

Any ideas?

I also have the same problem

I also have the same problem and I've done all listed here.

Other things i've tried:
Deleted my resource folder entirely and then ran the game,
Used a backed up resources folder in place of my current,
Tried playing via web browser,
Replaced the OpenAL.dll with a current version,
Making sure i haven't just turned sound off in game,
Re-downloaded the .exe,
Restarting the PC,

All sounds on my PC work fine except from minecraft.
I'm guessing something happened during the server's downtime, the game ran flawlessly before the site went back up sometime in the last 24hrs.


Edit:

Found this while reading notch's blog:
"I haven’t been able to move the resources (sounds and music yet) because
those used a rather ridiculous auto updating scheme that was different
from the rest of the game. I will fix this today."

Maybe this is the cause?
Hopefully he will fix it within the next day.

one solution

hi, im new and ive been trying to fix this problem for a while. Instead of going offline and playing you can be online and play, but you have to block minecraft.net, and blocking in browser, of course, is not the issue.
what you have to do is:
1. go to c:/windows/system32/drivers/etc
2. open host file in notepad
3. put the next 2 lines at the end of file:
127.0.0.1    www.minecraft.net
127.0.0.1    minecraft.net
4. save the file (make sure it doesnt save as .txt.
5.enjoy playing minecraft with sound but remember to delete those 2 lines from the host file when yo uwant to have access to minecraft.net again. I hope they will fix the problem soon and hope this helps :)

Sound problem over

Notch reports, and I can confirm, that sounds are being properly downloaded again. For Creative, just go into options and turn Sound on (it will have been turned off). For Alpha, go to the ESC menu, press and hold F3 and S and after a few seconds or so the stats should stutter a little bit as Minecraft redownloads all the sounds. After that, go to the Options menu, and drag up the Sound slider.

Also...

In beta, the way I did it is by going to options, dragging the sound bars around, then put them back to 100%. That seemed to work for me! :P

all you have to do is find

all you have to do is find out what system your running on 32 bit or 64 bit...

I have 32...
click on minecraft, then click on options (it should have a link to the .minecraft folder) click on it...
go to bin file then natives...
if you are running 32 bit like me click on the file OpenAL32.dll and rename it to OpenAL32.dll.bak
it might ask you if you want to save this change, say yes...
and thats it now when you go and click on volume it wont crash...
if you still dont have sound delete the resources folder found in the .minecraft folder to force it to re-upload it...
I hope this helps, it did for me...

Update your client

Sometimes if you need to update your client, the sound wont work, before fiddling with the program try to force and update see if that helps
