How do I import long audio files without Live messing them up?

I'm trying to supplement a DI live recording with ambient room sound from a handheld recorder in a Live session. Every time I drag/drop from finder or list the room file in samples and drag from there, it only brings part of the file across into the audio track.

This has actually helped me find very unconventional methods of mixing this type of session with pleasingly idiosyncratic results, but I would now just like a straight mix. Am I missing something? What would cause Live to just excise part of the track?

    In the "Record Warp Launch" section of Live's Preferences, set Auto-Warp Long Samples to Off.
