WAV files not importing right?

So I have a bunch of sound effects on my computer that are all WAV format. The first one I imported did so just fine. Now any others that I import refuse to do that. Is this something wrong with the files perhaps?

Try them all in a new project first to make sure it's not just your project that's having the problem.

Next, take a look at this:

Example capxs I have made:
Zelda-Style Inventory
Zelda Hearts System

The unwritten "How do I" capx etiquette! Nearly always provide a capx of the problem you have, and try to isolate the problem and/or no capx above 10 MB. :)

Could you give a few more specifics about what you're expecting to happen, and what you're seeing instead? Not sure what you're referring to when you say it doesn't work.

LaDestitute, I tried importing them into a new file and that didn't work, but thanks for the tip. And I've read the manual too :/

Ashley, what is happening is that the WAV files are being converted into 2 of the 3 files that they need to be converted to. The one they aren't converting to is ogg. and when that happens they aren't on the list when I go to program in sound.

I believe that most of the files are bad, I started a completely new project and imported all of the sound effects I had in that folder and only a handful of them would import. Guess I'll just have to look for more sound effects from a different source. Anyone know of good sources?

What format are the WAV files? Can you share them? It might be that the WAV files are in a format that the AAC codec can read, but the Vorbis codec can't. You should make sure you always use 16-bit PCM WAVs.
