Alert sound for Dunkin Donuts?

 

Does anyone have an alert sound for Dunkin' Donuts?
I can't find one on the web, not even a "Time to make the donuts.mp3"

Oh i forgot, you have to

Oh i forgot, you have to convert it from a .wav to an mp3 with any free converter that you can download.

DD wav file doesn't work

I have one but it is not working. It is a wav file that says, "do you need a coffee, Dunkin Donuts ahead." it used to work but does not load now when I update the POI file.

Naming Files

I assume you have checked that - in the folder which you point POILoader to - that the Dunkin Donut files are named exactly the same to the left of the period.

yes

they are named the same.

SOX.EXE Missing?

You could be missing SOX.EXE. It should be located in the directory where POI Loader is installed If it's missing, you can download it here:

Yup

I recently replaced my desktop PC (and wow, an SSD drive speeds things up a lot) and spent days doing updates, installing programs, etc. My first attempt to install custom POIs resulted in an error. Yes indeed, it was a missing sox.

On the other hand, bsp131, if this is the problem, POILoader will report an error. If you're not seeing an error when running POILoader which includes custom wav audio files, then your issue is something else.

Does this missing sound just appear on your 3597 or does it affect your 765T and 650, too? If the problem is just with the 3597, then I suspect your audio file is an mp3, not a wav.

If your alert is missing on just one device, check to see if it has an audio mixer with a volume level set to mute.

Then too, if you've moved to a new home or have a new DD that doesn't alert, it could be that the POI location is more than 98 feet from the center of the roadway and there won't be an alert as you approach the location.

Check these possibilities out or give us some more info about when and where they worked before but fail now. Good luck.

thank you

I downloaded the Sox file. I will try it out next time I update my POIs and let you know.

Just to be sure

Just to be sure, with the correct sox.exe file in the correct PC folder, your nuvi 3597 will be able to play a DD wav file but if you find that you set this up with your older 765T device and you used an mp3 file, it will still fail since the 3597 can not play mp3 files. I'm concerned since you stated that you had audio DD alerts in the past (maybe with the 765T) but that now (maybe with the 3597), they don't play.

But then, maybe they did alert on the 3597, but like me, you bought a new PC, installed POILoader, and forgot to re-add the sox.exe to the PC redface , you should be good to go once sox is there.

still didn't work

The DD wav file did work on the 3597, however I, like you said, I got a new PC. I added the Sox file to the POI file and tried it again but it still didn't work. Is there anything else I can do.

this is the message I am getting: "Unable to convert...DD-US wav to the proper format, therefore the audio file was not transferred"

Which and where

Did you get the sox.exe from here at the Factory? You need to use the older version 14.0.1 file, not a newer one. The sox offered for download here is the correct one.

What computer folder is the sox in? It goes in the program folder where the POILoader program is, not the folder containing the POI files.

Also, with a new PC, you may not have set the desired folder options and if set to Windows default of hide extensions for known file types, your wav audio file may be DD-US.wav.wav rather than the needed DD-US.wav.

In any case, the error message you quote is what would be seen if the sox isn't where it should be or is a newer version of sox, like 14.1.0.

It's also possible that your wav file doesn't work. Can your computer manually play the file's audio? You could try substituting another wav file from the many selections here at the Factory as a test.

Don't give up.

sox.exe

I think you need to right click and download, or save as.

wav file

I have been reading other messages about the poiloader and sox and they were saying that the wav files only work with poiloader versions 2.5.2 and 2.5.3. I noticed that I have version 2.7.3. could that be the problem. where can I go to download the earlier version.

Sox.exe

If you are getting the sox.exe here. http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730 .Left click on the zip file and download it somewhere on your computer.Go to the location you downloaded it to. Right click it and select extract all. Now copy the sox.exe file that was extracted.Now follow instructions on the link above. Here is a video I done that may help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsJTUmvb6_o

thank you

I will provide an update after all is done.

It works

Thank you so much for taking the time to showing me what was needed for my Dunkin Donuts mp3 to work. I added sox.exe to the correct folder and reloaded my POIs and now I have sound again when I am near a DD store.

Thank you. I love this site.

Well done
