    Default Problems with mp3 file

    I have been sent an mp3 file that I can't open in Audacity. I just a audio file that gives a lot of noisy rubbish.

    This audio file is results for the local camera club, and I need to edit and fiddle the file to put together a professional looking presentation to give the Club. I suspect the file I received has been done on an Apple computer. I have PC and need to be able to access the file in Audacity for editing purposes.

    So - any suggestions as to what I do? The last time I had this problem I used VLC successfully to reconvert it, but don't seem to be able to do it this time. My computer set-up is a PC with Windows 10. Suggestions for a free programme that would convert it to a version of mp3 that Audacity would read would be great.

    And I'm not sure why I can't use VLC to complete the job this time. I've around the blocks on this one, but so far, it has been unsuccessful.

    So - as always - TIA for the help I receive here!

    If done on a Apple computer, maybe iTunes was used to encode it. Also the file may have DRM protection, (how to check) and perhaps Audacity won't play it.

    Ah - I thought it might be something like that.

    But how do I remove the ( I had better read your reference first!). I just asking how to remove the DRM protection. I'll get back after my Morse programme and reading, of course!

    Didn't seem to work, but I'll try again in the morning when the grey cells might be a bit more co-operative...
