How do I use my own recorded samples in Ableton 9's sampler instrument?

I am trying to use a section of a WAV field recording as a loop in the Sampler instrument. I want it to keep looping when I press one key on the keyboard. I have followed a tutorial and when I use a commercial sample I can change the loop markers & everything works. When I drop my WAV file into the instrument the loop markers do not seem to be working properly and sometimes it doesn't play the file but some other strange sound. It is driving me insane and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.
