    I've got a problem uploading mp3 files with Fetch 3.0.3: Uploaded mp3s appear as text when viewed in Navegator or Explorer on a Mac. I'm told that they appear as mp3 on a PC. Uploading a folder with a .mov and a .mp3 file using Files and folders / Raw Data, the Quicktime movie works fine, but the mp3 appears as text. I've tried changing to BinaHex/MacBinary II, but no go.

    You definitely want to upload MP3s in Raw Data format. It could be that the web server does not know to identify .mp3 files as having the MIME type audio/mpeg. To correct that you'd contact your web server administrator.

    Thanks Jim. I've found out that my mp3s had a ID3v2 Tag embedded in the mp3 file. Removing this makes them show up in Explorer ok, but not in Netscape... I've had no luck communicating with my Server (Telefonica) re MIME types.
