Hi, trying to puts some tracks onto a mp3 players, one of the tracks, the icon for it is like a sheet of paper with the corner turned over, when I click on it, it asks what to open it with, I click "irfanview" and it plays as a MP3, how the heck can i change it so that is stays as a MP3.....thank you

hi, all it says is "type of file" File.

Sounds as if it's an mp3 already, no need to convert it if it plays. Is it missing the .mp3 extension?

this is a hard learning curve, tried to convert it, with the converter prog, could not understand it.

anyway, I renamed it like you said I put .mp3 after it, and lo and behold it changed it to MP3.

thank you all for the help.
