Confirm that you've done it right by checking that the Sounds folder appears in the Copy Bundle Resource build phase:
Now your strategy will work: Drag files from the Finder into that blue folder in the project navigator, and they will be copied into the real "Sounds" folder. The "Sounds" folder itself will be copied into your app bundle at build time, and you can refer to its contents in code using ordinary FileManager methods.
