Default import media item wierdness

Hi everyone,
Just downloaded the latest OSX version.
I've played the demo file and that's all good. When I try to import a media file (AIFF, 16-bit, stereo, duration 5 seconds, sr 48k) it is stretched out to about

66 hrs duration, ie pitch-shifted down by a factor of 48000, 1 sample per second.
I made sure the project setting reflected the format of the file

What am I doing wrong??

any suggestions/advice out there?

Terry

I'm using a PPC dual 1.25ghz with 10.4.11

and I had the same problem when using reaper 0.40U, and probably should have reported it then.

Default import audio?

I can't seem to import anything into the latest OS X Reaper. This is a 1.83gHz Intel MacBook running 10.4.11.

I can open the INSERT and MEDIA windows, but my .aif and .aiff files are gray in the selection window.

Any help is appreciated. I must be missing something...

I start teaching a college-level music technology class in January and would like to aim the students away from Cubase and toward Reaper.

I'm on 10.4.10, intel macbook. Can't play random aif or wav files that work on 5 other programs on this mac. It has the extension in the filename. Some just don't come up with a waveform, others have the waveform and don't play (holy hell frustrating!).

<edit to add: newest version of reaper>
