I would assume some obscure conflict with some other .dll on your computer, but if I find out any more I'll let you know.

CAF (Core Audio Format) is a container file like WAV, so it may depend on what format is inside the container. Audacity (without FFmpeg) supports CAF up to a point, and might be able to import the file if it contained uncompressed PCM audio and you renamed it to AIFF. However I suspect your .CAF contains AAC audio. Can you attach a short .CAF file from your iPhone, or e-mail it?
Given iPhone created it, can you import the file into iTunes? You may have to rename it to .M4A or just possibly, AIFF or AIFC. If iTunes accepts it you can convert it to .M4R in iTunes.
These instructions are for iTunes 8. If you have iTunes 7, the setting to change is on the small "Importing" tab inside the "Advanced" tab.
1 Click Edit > Preferences
2 Click on the leftmost "General" tab
3 Click the "Import Settings" button half way down on the right
4 In the "Import Using" dropdown, choose "AAC Encoder"
5 In the "Setting" dropdown, choose Custom - you probably want to choose a low bit rate
6 Click OK and OK
7 Right-click over the file you want to convert > "Create AAC version"
8 Right-click over the converted file, click "Get Info", and check the location of the file at "Where". Rename it in Explorer to M4R extension
Note in recent iTunes 9, the "Create AAC version" option is accessed from the "Advanced" menu, not by right-click.
If that doesn't work, try playing the file in QuickTime which should have been bundled with iTunes, then record it into Audacity
, export as WAV and then convert to .M4R using iTunes or SUPER
[Note that people on Macs may have various sounds in .CAF format. These appear to be AAC-encoded (on the basis of some samples that someone sent to me once). However Audacity with FFmpeg can't decode them, nor can the FFmpeg version downloaded from Audacity if used at the command line. From what I'm told, people on Mac should be able to open them in Audacity Beta using File > Open and choosing the Quick Time importer.]
