Importing Sound files

Ive seen this asked a couple more times in various places on the forum, but none of the answers to previous posts help.

I am importing a sound file into UED. The sound file will not appear in the Sound browser. It is in WAV format, and I have tried importing in 16 and 8 bit mono and stereo, but none of the formats work.

I read elsewhere that UED no longer supports "module music" in another post. Does this go for sound effects as well? Does that mean I will need to supply the sound file seperately so the end users can place it in their sound directory?

Many thanks in advance for the help.

I fixed it by following the advice of another thread; moving the wav file to my root C drive and importing. The first time I tried this it did not work, but it seems fine now.

Make sure your sound files have the correct format (11, 22 or 44kHz; 8 or 16bit, Mono, PCM) and put them in a path that doesn't contain space characters - this goes for the filename as well.

Cheers for the response, luckily i've found out what it was. My hard drive is partitioned into 3 partitions, unreal being installed on drive E. I then put the sound files in drive C and they imported!!

wav sounds made on a Mac (OsX) in a sound package eg Peak don't seem to import....

solution:

open them using quicktime player and export as wav from there.
