I want to compare different WAV files containing the same song, these WAV files come from different CDs from different record companies and the WAV files are almost, but not exactly, the same filesize.
If I use WinDiff from the Microsoft Support Tools that sometimes works, then I see that both files are the same except the beginning and the end or that they are totally different. Only the problem is that WinDiff hangs on a lot of files, so that it doesn't show results.

So now I'm looking for either a better working version of WinDiff or another compare tool with support for binary files, or another way to compare WAV files with each other.

I agree that Audition's mix/paste is not an option here, it's difficult to figure out the position to paste and above all this option is buggy (it will report differences sometimes even when there are none).
Using something like windiff is ok, you could try other tools like beyondcompare or examdiff pro (both have trial versions and hex support).
