Where is the "#.#.#" file?
The #s stand for the numbers of the Minecraft version you are looking in for the textures/sound/etc (i.e. 1.4.7, 1.7.2, or 1.8). If there is a version of Minecraft that is not in there, go to your Minecraft Launcher, select "New Proflie" or "Edit Profile" on the bottom left of the screen and under "Version Selection" choose the version of Minecraft you'd like to download. All versions since InDev (old_alpha) are avalible.
My sound files are not playing in-game.
Make sure your sounds folder is spelled: "sounds". Also check the sound flie you are playing is in its correct sub-folder and is in ".ogg" format.
Do I need to use Audacity to convert audio files?
No. Any software program that can save audio files as .ogg are fine. I personally use Audacity because it is free and supports a range of audio formats.
Is there a faster way to convert all audio files at once?
To my knowledge, yes. However, the only methods I have found requires buying third-party software and that is outside of my area of experience.
The FAQ doesn't answer one of my questions.
Please comment any questions and suggestions below. I will get to them as soon as I can. Feel free to answer any questions you see and know. I will expand the FAQ as questions come in.
I have created this tutorial out of my own need to examine the contents of the Default Resource Pack and I will work to the best of my ability to provide the tools that can
benefit your Minecraft experience.

[FAQ] Sound File Extraction : 05/30/2015 9:45:41 pm5/30/15
I am currently working on a new tutorial image that will hopefully clear out any misunderstandings.
For now, here are the steps to extracting sound files in word form.
For these I recommend having "Audacity", as it is free and easy to use audio editing software.
- - ---------------------------------------------------------- - -
1. Find the main ".minecraft" folder.
2. Go into the "assets" folder.
3. Go into the "indexes" folder.
4. Open the "#.#.json" text file in the version you want the sound from. (ex. "1.8.json")
5. Within the "#.#.json" text document, search for the name of the sound you want. Use 'control + f' to help you find the name you want. Your sound file name may look something like this:
6. Underneath the sound name you will see a long string of numbers and letters. Copy that string of characters. It is the name of the document that we will extract the sound file from.
7. Next, go back into the "assets" folder.
7. (optional) and go into the "objects" folder.
8. Search for a file with that string of characters (see step 6) within the "objects" folder. Obviously, there are a lot of folders with a lot of files. Your computer should have a search bar that you can paste the string of characters into and quickly find your sound document.
9. Open this file with an audio editing program. Again, I recommend using Audacity.
10. Once you have opened this file, you will need to export it as an "Ogg Vorbis" file (.ogg). This is one of the options in the exporting menu.
11. You now have your sound file in ".ogg" format and it can now be used in your resource pack sound folders!

Sounds Update #1 : 02/03/2014 11:48:55 pm2/03/14
However, this is not an issue if you are looking to move already existing sound files for your Resource Pack.
If you would like to see the sounds within the .minecraft sound folder use a 1.6 or earlier version of a minecraft.jar.
