I've got a weird simulator error related to sounds. My app loads a series of sounds (12 of them) in AIFF 4:1 44.1kHz mono format, as exported by QuickTime Pro.
On the device, everything works fine and I get no errors related to sound.
However in the simulator, two of the sounds spit an error upon load:
2008-11-22 18:50:27.422 My App[9606:20b] Error -1500 loading sound at path: /Users/higgins/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/User/Applications/537A8435-3AAE-4189-ABA7-0A7C7C0316AB/My App.app/applause_long.aif
2008-11-22 18:50:27.423 My App[9606:20b] Error -1500 loading sound at path: /Users/higgins/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/User/Applications/537A8435-3AAE-4189-ABA7-0A7C7C0316AB/My App.app/laughter_final.aif
Now...it still seems to WORK (doesn't crash), but the error seems odd to me. I tried recompressing the files and otherwise fiddling around, but the simulator just doesn't seem to like them.
From some Googling, I gather that -1500 is an "unspecified" error. That ain't too helpful. The only difference about these sounds (versus the other 10) is that they're bigger files. The other 10 files are 64k or under (real tiny); these two are 116k and 252k (5 sec and 11 sec respectively)...still pretty tiny, right? Is it possible that this is related?
