Remember to uncheck the "Save extra non-audio information" checkbox when you
save files in CoolEdit. This may solve your problem. Changing the filetype
to Apple .aif format will probably also solve the problem.

The soundfiler have a size limitation of about 16MB, since samples are
loaded into memory (to prevent overflowing the memory?). To break this
you'll need to edit d_soundfile.c in the sources line 798 and recompile.
(This worked for me once).
