I ONLY knew this problem "vice versa" -> ...but doesn't work on windows 

Can you play that sound with QuickTime Player on the mac?

My personal advice:
Use the AU format for your internal sounds...
I do it all the time and NEVER had problems with it...
They will even play on linux/unix (if necessary... ;-)

AU is the only COMPRESSED file format that is supported by the
"play ac xyz" command!

I don't think you will have to go THAT far ;-)

See above...

That's an easy one: I am omniscient 8-D
