Their formats should be exactly the same as the formats of WAV files and RIFF files. You can get the format information at http://www.wotsit.demon.co.uk.

I don't think there is such a thing as a RIFF file. RIFF is chunk type found inside a .wav file. (There's also a 'data' chunk as well.) And I already know the format of a WAV file but my docs on clipboard formats don't indicate that the entire wave file is placed on clipboard. In fact they don't indicate much of anything other than the fact that I can use either CB_WAVE or CB_RIFF.

A WAV file is a kind of RIFF files. The other examples of RIFF files are AVI files and RMI files (a kind of MIDI files). As far as I understand, CF_WAVE can be standard PCM format, CF_RIFF can be other formats (such as ADPCM, or even AVI) as long as it conforms to RIFF standard.

You can try this.

Call AVIPutFileOnClipboard() to copy an AVI file (or a wave file since AVIFile functions work on RIFF files) to the clipboard. Now the clipboard contains the CF_WAVE data. Then retrieve the data and view it.

I think CF_WAVE contains RIFF WAVE followed by fmt chunk and data chunk while CF_RIFF can contain other chunks.
