Thanks Mike. I've worked my way through all the encodings in SOX and 
none work. Some of the conversions produce a faint click. Mostly they 
don't play at all. I tried copying the waveform in Audacity, pasting it 
into a new file, and saving that with the same settings as the 3 that do 
work but that failed too. I also tried the two suggestions you made above.

Each of these 2 audio clips is about a half second long. I have just 
spent all day trying to get them to play. Whatever is wrong seems to be 
confined to these 2 files because I was able to get the other 3 to work 
with some effort. This should have been a couple minutes work.

All my conversions run fine in the OS X Finder and in Audacity.
