using sounds / QuickTime TimeCode track

I am also having trouble with audio files. I am trying to simply play 
a sound file (QT/ AIFF) that is in the same directory as the RR 
stack. I have aound 3Gb of audio files that I absolutely do not want 
to segment and embed. In Hypercard I can play any selected chunk. In 
RR I can't even get a squeak!

I haven't found the documentation that specifies the format of 
soundfiles, is there such a thing?
