The Case of the Mysterious Vanishing MP3s (tech help thread!

Postby Talia » Tue Jun 30, 2009 11:46 pm

Hey,

Ive noticed that when I download mp3s from the warehouse, they dont download as type mp3 but show up as that little generic "I don't know what type of file this is!!!" icon. I've found that going in and manually adding a .mp3 behind the name makes it display properly and it plays just fine.

However.

I cant seem to find the file in my iTunes library afterwards to delete it from my IPod after I've listened. No search terms work. It shows in my playlist, but I cant find it in the "library" part.

Incidentally I could always find it before the warehouse change, so there is something about the new setup that itunes doesn't like (or it doesnt like what I did to the file name, but I had to or it wasnt showing up as an mp3 at all!).

:/

Incidentally I use firefox, not sure if this is the reason why the files are not downloading as mp3s.. or something

Sorry for the problems, let's figure it out. In order to replicate the problem, tell me the following:
What OS (XP, Vista, Mac)?
What version of Firefox?
Does it happen in any other browser?

Thanks!

Boy was I ever able to replicate that problem! Seems like Firefox is having some issues. It appears to work in IE, Chrome, and Safari just fine. I'm in contact with the developer, so I'll see what I can find out!

Ok, here's the skinny. While the developer of the "fancy" download page is fixing the problems, I've added a basic warehouse page for episodes 100+. The filenames must be truncated in this format, but it works.

And, of course you can use any other browser except firefox to access the fancy warehouse page.
