Not able to play recorded track back

Hello, I just got the newest version of audacity and I can not get it to play back the tracks I recorded, the play cursor bar thing won’t move. How do I fix it?

Do you see a waveform?

Have you selected the correct [u]Playback Device[/u]? You can also try changing the Audio Host.

Try exporting to WAV and play the new WAV file in Windows Media Player (or whatever player software you normally use). If that doesn’t work, try a known-good WAV or MP3 file in Windows Media Player.

Try loading a known-good file into Audacity to see if you can play it. (After saving and/or exporting your current audio).
