Why don't AIFF files play on the Squeezebox or Softsqueeze? I have them selected in server settings. This is posted on the audiophile forum but no response.

potentially many reasons. AIFF is native, so it shouldn't be due to
any trancoder. but, you should check the server
settings->file types, just to make sure you haven't accidentally
disabled the type. depending on the server version (which you haven't
supplied)
you may need to check the setting for file types to ignore while
scanning (though since you are able to try to play them, it's very
likely not the problem.

Also go to server settings->debugging, check d_source then open up
http://<serverip>:9000/log.txt. When you try to play the track, that
window will show you
the steps that the server is taking in order to play the track. it may
show errors there. Last step, run command line in case there are any
system errors involved that are too low level to make it into a server
log.
