How do I get the soundboard to play wav files ? I convert them from MP3 to wave as specified but they still won't play.

Well thanks to the miss information given to me by this company, I spent 6 months trying to get the soundboard to work. I left off .WAV on the file names and it played instantly. So for all the other people out there that can't get their soundboard to work, just leave off .WAV off your file name. Thanks for wasting my time.

Sounds like you have "hide file extensions" turned on. So the files were probably being named like SOUND.WAV.wav instead of just SOUND.wav.

That's a really annoying "feature" of Windows that is on by default. It can be disabled. This has tripped up others:
