I want to find the system sounds on my Mac. Where are they?

share|improve this question

Look under (in this order):

Macintosh HD / System / Library / Sounds

They are in .AIFF format.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! That does help. But where is the wang sound that happens when you drag 'n drop a file from one place to another? – bobobobo Apr 28 '10 at 4:48
