mp3 files don't work

I use Vegas Pro 16.0. I've been importing mp3 files and editing with them for over a year. Out of the blue, mp3 files no longer work. When I drag them to the timeline, it doesn't show any waveforms and doesn't play any audio. Some mp3 files have a screeching noise at the beginning followed by silence. How do I get Vegas back to editing with mp3s?

Try reset your Vegas Pro 16

Thanks for the reply. However, this did not fix the issue. I used to be able to import the MP3 into Vegas even though they wouldn't play properly. But after resetting Vegas, I can't even import them.

Someting as you write never comes out of the blue.
Something has been changed,
Depends on which Windows version is used, automatic updates, something else installalled, a.s.o.
But we are not clairvoyant users, so only you can know.
