Who knows of a place i can download short sound effects that i can put in place of the tired old sounds windows plays? Ones that i canuse in FL studio, instead of the tired old sounds IT has?

Also, how do i do this, replacing of my window's sounds? Im willing to bet that i can just replace a file with one of the same name (and different contents) , or alternatively i can go and change it in the audio settings. Is this true

I might just go to work at the TV station and borrow a Sound Effects CD, but im not sure if theyll let me do that.

If you go to the Control Panel in XP, under 'Sounds and Audio Devices' and select the sound tab you can see which sounds have been allocated to which system events. You can allocate any sound you have saved on your system using the browse button. I think you are restricted to using wav files only for these events.

As Rimmer said, you need to use .wav files.
Here's a Google search for free .wav files.
