    Those are .caf files. Convert the sounds you want to .aif, then change the name of the extension to .caf. Then you're good.

    if your on windows, i use audacity.
    it imports/exports the .cafs without having to do all the converting.

    and they go into /System/Library/Audio/UISounds

    look towards the bottom of this page for more info:

    With iTunes you need to import using AIFF encoder you can get to it in iTunes preferences under edit then advanced. After converting rename file to your filename.caf then upload to phone.

    I think the best way to convert them is to just use Quicktime..

    When you open the file.. Then just do file> export.. and just type filename.caf in the filename and it automatically saves the file in the correct format. =) No renaming
