customise Windows sounds

Does anyone know how to increase the duration of the startup sound ( in XP ).
I've got a short WAV file 53secs that I want to use but only the first 4secs plays.

Rename file ???. old

Use wave editor to shorten file and save shortened file wih same name

53 seconds is a long time for the start sound to play,is there any reason you need it to be this long?

matter of interest really. I don't know how to do it so wondered how. There seems to be a default setting of 4secs (by counting 1000,2000.etc). It must be in the registry somewhere.

I cant say i have ever looked into this,the sound i have last's about 4 seconds,i dont really want it to last longer,lol.As you say i might be a reg setting but i have no idea where it would be.It may also be dictated by how long windows takes to load up as my sound doesnt start till the desktop appears.

Same for me. I'll tick as resolved as it seems a dead end. Thanks for the response though.
