I can import broadcast wav files from Cubase SX into Ardour fine. I 
assume Nuendo is the same.

Rightclick in a track -> Edit -> Insert external soundfile.

The only problem is that the position of the file does not seem to work. 
So, you can't do region->original position
This is a shame as it would make importing whole songs with lots of 
small wavs much easier. Broadcast wav supports this, so there must be a 
way of getting it to work.
