tftp transfer messing up wav file

Hey Experts,
I have a asterisk phone system running on a linux box.  
I connect to this box with a SSH connection as root.
I am then tftp transferring wav files to it for music on hold.  When i transfer the files they are getting choppy.  I know it is the transfer that is causingi t because the files are fine before, and if i download the files back from the asterisk with a SCP client they are choppy still using itunes to play them on windows.  

Any idea on what would cause the files to be messed up with transfering?

Are they binary files being transferred as ASCII?

How do i know?
using a standard tftp client once you connect to the server

type "mode"

it should tell you what mode its using

the default is ascii  (sometimes referred to as netascii)

type "mode binary"

to change to binary mode

type "mode" again and it should tell you that you are in binary (or octet) mode

now transfer the files.

is the choppy gone?

make sure the binary mode is set and transfer them back.

still sound ok?
