I am a infrequent user of premier elements 13.  I have an audio only file - .prel. I opened it to edit it.  But when I hit the play/pause toggle nothing happens.

Covert it to a wav file before importing into Premiere Elements.  MP3 file can sometimes be problematic.

What is the format and source of the audio clip in your project?

Well the original source was an MP3 but I had already saved it as .prel.  I wanted to make a couple a few more changes.  I opened the project and had the problem mention in my original post.

So even though it is in the .prel file it is still an MP3?  Also, (this will show I am really an occasional user) where (what software) would you convert it to a WAV file.

Thank you

A .prel is not a media file. It is a Premiere Elements project file.

Your mp3 is a media file inside the project file.
