When I go to insert a media file, nothing shows up on File Explorer. WTF?!!

There might not be a supported music file on that folder (MP3).

^ REAPER cannot handle some file extensions such as .m4a, you'd have to convert it to ogg/flac/mp3/wav (I suggest using Audacity) before importing it.

Also, I suggest showing file extensions in the file explorer:

.flac does not seem to show a waveform for me on the audio track. I use MP3 or wav.

I've had no problems using FLAC files in REAPER. In fact, I recommend doing it over MP3 because it is a lossless file type, so a good rip will guarantee basically the best audio quality you can get for your custom.

 

For the original question, what type is the file you want to import?
