This is most likely a playback problem. Not certainly, mind you, I'm just
going by statistics. First, make sure the machine in question can play back
other *CD quality* wav files, meaning 44.1kHz/16bit/little endian/stereo. Or,
try the wav on a different machine known to work. If this is impossible or
exceedingly difficult, but a small WAV that illustrates the problem somewhere I
can get to it. You can try mailing it, but large files can disappear during
