I've converted sound clips to WAV format, 16 bit and 44.1hrtz...   Trying to upload and keep getting error msg WONG CHUNK SIZE IN WAV FILE.   What am I doing wrong?  Using Adobe Audition to edit sounds.  Tried uploading in SL viewer and Phoenix.  Same issues.  Thanks for any help.

"chunk size" is a data value in the RIFF-WAV file format header.  If the viewer is stating that the chunk size is wrong or invalid then, without having the file to analyze, I would GUESS that a chunk size value encountered when loading the sound file indicates a chunk size that exceeds the amount of remaining data left to load.  Perhaps the file has been truncated, or the program that created the file did so improperly.  RIFF-WAV is a rather old file format to be "getting wrong".  Perhaps the .WAV extention was applied to a data format that is not RIFF-WAV?  I have seen that done by fancy editing software that supports many formats.  If I remember correctly .WAV isn't restricted to RIFF-WAV.
