I know that this topic has been discussed before, but i didn't find a
solution to my problem in previous threads. I want to include a binary file,
which has to be located at a particular address ($5000). First i tried the
.org - command, but it did not work.

.org $5000
.incbin "sound.bin"

After compiling and linking with cl65 main.c sound.s, my sound isn't located
at $5000. It is not even included in the compiled file. I read in the manual
that there are better ways to put binaries at a particular address. But my
first question is: why does this piece of code don't work?

Then i tried the solutions with segments. I modified the c64 memory
configuration file by inserting

            sound: start = $5000, size = $1000, define = yes, file = %O;
            SOUND: load = sound, type = rw;

Now my sound.s - file looks the following way:

.segment "SOUND"
.incbin "sound.bin"

The resulting file after compiling with
ld65 main.o sound.o c64.lib -C memory.cfg
does not contain any data at $5000. The strange thing is, that the main
program now starts at $5ADE. My sound.bin-file has a length of $ADE...
I have no explanation for that. Can anyone help me?
