Really? On my HTC Artemis (O2 XDA) I was only able to get .wav files (PCM Uncompressed) to work for alarms, and then they must be less than approx 2.33mb (as reported by XP or ~2,450,000 bytes). They must be stored in the windows directory.
There are .wma files also in the windows directory but none of them appear in the clock & alarms drop down list. So I assumed .wma's can't be used for the alarms.
The .wav files must be 8bit or 16bit and either 8kHz, 11.025kHz, 16kHz or 22.05kHz (32kHz does not seem to work).
It's a bit annoying as I had a good .mid file as an alarm on my old Sony Ericsson and they are tiny (28.3kb). Converting it to .wav made it 2.5mb!!! So I had to trim it down to 2.33mb before it would work.
