Here’s my screenshot: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/577/mp3success00.png/ If you are getting a particular error, you can make a screenshot and post the link here. That way, I can see the problem, and advise you better. The mime type that was detected for the mp3 that I uploaded is “audio/mpeg”, as you can see from my screenshot.
