    When I first got my iMac, the empty trash sound worked perfectly. Now, for a few days already, it's suddenly disappeared! No matter how I empty the trash, the sound won't play! By the way, the sound that was default was the original sound that sounds like the crumpling of paper.
    I'm actually quite fond of the empty trash sound. Please, does anyone know how I might fix this problem? I run Leopard by the way, and the problem isn't because of upgrading from Tiger to Leopard, because I didn't. I got my iMac with Leopard already in it.

    go to the Sound Preferences and check if the alert volume is muted under Sound Effects. you can also do this by option clicking the sound menu bar icon.

    You might have turned down / muted the overall sound level.

    I had the same issue and what worked for me was going to system preferences, then sound and under the sound effects tab checking the "play user interface sound effects" box

    The play user interface sound effect is ticked, and the volumes isn't muted, but the trash sound (and now I've noticed even the volume up and down sound) still goes off once in a while. Oh dear, it couldn't be that my mac is already having hardware or programming problems even before it's one year old?
