There is a broadcast format wav file and a more generally used standard 
wav format that I have come across.

For what it is worth I recall similar problems with imported files not 
working as well. It was posted here, but it was a while back.

When using rdimport to import a batch of wavs & mp3's into /var/snd
the wavs went in Ok but the mp3's also ripped from CD's locally, did not 
import useably.

  As stated here they showed up and if selected fron an external player 
like banshee or audacity they were fine, however RD would show cart info 
in log and start play functions normally, including timing down, but no 
sound was audible. It also was not audible if the play button was used 
when adding the cart to the log to test it before adding it to the log. 
Happened on both Ubuntu and openSUSE Rd boxes.
