Sound "scratch" when adding wav files to flash

I´m having trouble adding sound i.e wav files to a presentation made in flash 5. When recording I make sure that every sound clip is ending in complete silence. When im playing the sound clip i MS mediaplayer, real audio, Quicktime and other players the sound clip is normal.

After importing it in flash, the program adds a small scratch, similar to vinyl records pickup-scratching.... the scratching is also visible when viewing the sound clip in the library.

I´m using the technique
MySound = new Sound();
MySound.attachSound("TheClip");
MySound.start(0, 1);

The only way I can eliminate the scratch is through adding tha command: stopAllSounds (); after the clip has run for the correct number of frames... but this method sux... since I then have to publish and check my work correct the frame where I call stopAllSounds (); over and over again.... and I have about 200 soundclips.... *sigh*

Can anybody help me?

Sounds strange.  Where are these "scratches"?  Are they at the beginning or end of the files?  If so, put some silence at the beginning and end of each file and make flash fade them in and out.  Most sound files make a pop sound at the beginning and end - this is a standard way to remove them.

If that's not your problem, then I'm afraid I don't get you.  The only thing it could be is that you're using a compression ratio that's too low and making the flash versions of the sounds poo.

Good luck,

MoonCalf.

The scratches are just before the sound stops at the end.

Ok, so I can get flash to fade in and out again.... hmmm... gotta check the manual for this...
