Default Why don't I see WAV file in my file list for a folder?

Why doesn't WAV file show up in the list of tracks presented within a folder.

At the moment I have only one such example, but I've been trying to get it to display (and thus be playable) in the file list for the folder... to learn what I have to do in order to make this happen.

It's simply not showing up, although it's definitely in the folder.

Naturally, there is no ID3 tag associated with a WAV file, so how is the file supposed to be accessible just by being present, if there is no ID3 data to index?

I have four files of essentially the same name (call it ABC), three of which are MP3 (and of course have ID3 tags) and 1 of which is WAV (and of course does not have ID3 tag). I've got the file names of the four files unique (with a suffix identifying what they really are) so it's not a duplicate file name problem. I've also got the track name inside the three ID3 tags for the three MP3 files to match the external file name, so again there's certainly no duplicate file name problem with the three MP3 files... and in fact they all show up just fine.

But the WAV file is "invisible".

The three MP3 files (which got indexed because they have ID3 tags) appear in the folder file name list. The WAV file does not.

What am I missing? What do I need to do to get the WAV file to be accessible somehow so that I can play it?

Am I wrong? Can you put an ID3 tag into a WAV file? I didn't think that was supported.

But if not, then how is a WAV file supposed to be handled by the J3 and available for play???
