MP3 won't play
I downloaded a song and it will not play. Then I downloaded the same song from another source and it still will not play. Anybody
know what's going on?

What player are you using????;)

If it still wont play then it is most likely a corrupt file. Make sure the file extension IS MP3. Keep trying diffrent hosts until you can get one that isnt corrupt.

wondering why, the player wouldnt be the problem, but a corrupt file, would be. Unless of course they are using the crappy Limewire player. If thats the case then test the file in another player. ;)

Thanks Sphinx, I wasn't sure if it had something to do with the LW player....
Cheers mate ;)

Thanks all. I tried it on 3 different players so that eliminates the "lousy Limewire player theory".

Sphinx do you use WMP? If yes, then there "is" a bug between LW's describe function & wmp when you add descriptions to audio files after they've been added to wmp's playlist. It seems to corrupt the files in such a way wmp can't play the files anymore. But it doesn't seem to affect any other player.
