Okay, I reinstalled DW (and updated to 1.06), but the game's soundtrack still isn't playing. To address in (approximate) order the questions/points raised by Igard and WoodMan:
1.) Yes, the weapons and explosion sound effects work.
2.) Yes, I was able to play the mp3 test file (using Windows Media Player).
3.) Actually, the game's music stopped playing after I updated to 1.06 -- both before and after I reinstalled XP (as well as updating my sound drivers) on my computer. That's why I reported this bug in the first place; it was only after this most recent update that I've had problems.
4.) I found DW's music folder, and yes I was able to play every single track in there (again, using Windows Media Player).
Also, I forgot to mention before that the music during the game's intro sequence works just fine. As soon as I get to the main menu, however, the music stops completely. I'm not sure if that's at all relevant, but I figured I should mention it just in case.
EDIT: Just to be absolutely sure, I'm going to reinstall the game, but without updating it. I'm first going to see if the music works minus the 1.06 patch.
