You need to have the sound file saved in the correct place, and Asterisk has to 
be able to read it.  Double-check, triple-check and check for a fourth time 
that the file is really where you think it is and its permissions, and those of 
the containing folder, are correct.

Whenever I need to use a custom sound file or files, then I usually set up a 
test extension which just plays my wanted sound file(s) and calls Hangup() .  
Then I call this and test that my custom sounds work.
