I am a novice to OS X and have two questions involving sound files. 1. At work (system 9) I can save sound files to my desk top. I double-click on them and they sound instantly. With OS X (what I have at home), when I click on a wav, mpg3 or snd file, iTunes opens and plays the sound. Highly annoying! And what's worse, THEN iTunes starts playing everything in its inventory after it plays the sound. Is there any way to create a sound file I can double-click on without opening up an application? 2. Some sites have sounds that I'd love to download. But I can save them only as Quick Time Movies (yes, MOVIES!). In other words, when I click on "save as," I am forced to save them this way. So needless to say, when I click on these icons on my desk top, they don't play, and I get a window saying "The movie file [say, Orig_0000818e.IETemp] cannot be found. Without this file, the movie cannot play properly," followed by "Couldn't open the file [name of file] because an unknown error occured. The number of the error is: [say, 128]." How can I save/convert a Quick Time movie file containing a piece of audio to something that I can save on my desktop and double-click on? I just want to click on a sound icon and hear it immediately. Why is this so difficult? Thanks to anyone who can help me! P.S. I tried using something I downloaded called Sound App. But it was only operable in 9. When I realized it, I trashed it, as I didn't want to convert to 9 every time I opened it. Now I use something called SoundConverter. But that doesn't help with my two problems above.
