.wav-file on start up and shut down


Yoho!
I've just bought a new laptop and installed Suse10.1 - after some work everything works.
But I have these cool sounds I'd like to have on [start up] and [shut down],
both in .wav-format.
I know where to put them, but when testing all I get is a short, metallic buzz. From both [start up] and [shut down]. When turning my laptop on or off I get nothing.
I am using another .wav-file for warning, and that works fine.

Anyone got a clue? Anyone able to help?

what desktop manager does Suse10.1 use KDE/Gnome etc ?
are you replacing an existing sound that does/did not have the same issue ?
how big are your .wav files (if bigger than 1mb) ?

I'm using Gnome, and replacing standard soundfiles, although they didn't work either.
My wanted files are 334,1KB and 318,1KB.
The files are in my Documents folder.

I would be very worried that the originals did not work.
Does sound work in general ?
what sound players have you got installed ?
have you investigated upgrading the sound components of your system.

Thank you for replying.
All sound works just fine. Cd's, DVD's, Amarok, Banshee, RealPlayer, warningsound on Gaim.... It all works.
And I upgrade when the dot on the down right side turnes orange. Do not know how to upgrade any further....
