what can be done when you are trying to edit a music track and you get the message "unhandeld file type"?

How are you tryiong to edit, which software and which file type?

Literally it means the software doesn't recognise the type of file you are using.

So answering MAJ's question would be helpful. Also look at the file type you are trying to edit, or read, and check whether the software says it can handle that type of file.

Also, make sure that you have the option to view file extensions turned on, it's possible that if you haven't, you could be looking at a file such as "my song.mp3.some other extension", where the ",some other extension" isn't showing, making you believe you have an MP3 file. Some viruses are delivered that way.

Go to Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab and untick the "Hide extensions for known file types" option, click Apply and OK to exit. Then look at the problem file again, see if it has double extension as I described above.
