  • That happened to me too, I cannot hear any sounds in the servers. I thought this had something to do with there being no folders in the resource folder, but what do I do to fix the noise? I cannot hear anything in servers, but I can on a single world? – user52023 Jul 16 '13 at 23:42

    You might want to tell us what you're actual problem is. Not being able to find these folders isn't a problem unless you're trying to do something with them. What are you trying to do? – SevenSidedDie Jul 18 '13 at 4:38
  • If you want a new bin folder you need to play minecraft 1.5 Only that version will generate it. 1.6 won't do that because it has a different launcher that does a different process – user52322 Jul 21 '13 at 20:00

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is obsolete; Minecraft no longer even has a /bin/ folder. – Billy Mailman Aug 30 '13 at 1:57

The new minecraft launcher doesn't use a bin or resource folder. The bin folder is replaced by versions\<version number> and the sounds and music are stored in the assets folder.
