Maybe you have to extract the files from your CD... They should be packed into some CAB or ZIP file...  ::)

Why not? Can't you associate a sound to any desired event?
I make a 'registry key' backup in order to 'upload' this settings if I miss them or change the computer...

Can you play the sounds in lets say Media Player or Winamp?
