By default RD uses .wav files.  In order to use .mp3 files you need to 
have an Audioscience card.

On gotcha that has bitten folks in the past is they would see the .mp3 
option and select it, even if they don't have an ASI card.  When you do 
that, everything appears to be running, but you have no sound.  So, what 
I was telling the OP was that if they have a generic card, to make sure 
they're using .wav files, not .mp3 in the config.

Uncompressed .wav files are the default - you shouldn't have to do 
anything to use them...
