Sam, you may already have tried these suggestions:
1. If the source files are on a CD, did you copy the audio files to your hard drive from the CD? If not, and the CD isn’t in the computer, Vegas will generate an error message like the one you’re getting.
2. Try using the “Search” function on your computer to locate the files; they may have been saved inadvertently to a different folder than you think. Try searching for *.wav (or *.mp3, or whatever type of audio files you’re using.)
I know from experience that it’s awfully easy to save to a drive or folder that isn’t your project folder, with the results you are experiencing. I occasionally do this when I render a clip or project.
