Try AudioSlicer
I use this on large samples, it chops them up (usually successfully) into chunks where the audio is silent.
Does the job for me pretty well

Re: Build-in Wave Editor

I'm in the same boat as I don't like Audacity at all/ I use Wavepad but this is buggy as and crashes 75% of the time.
