    Ok I'm going to sound like a complete fail with computers, which I am, but basically I've downloaded some past radio shows (Melvyn Bragg, In Our Time :]) and I'm wondering whether I'm going to be able to put them on my ipod which I'm getting in a couple of weeks. Apparently you can only put on files which are mp3s, but I don't know how to tell if these files are mp3s or not. Can someone please enlighten me? I've tried right clicking and clicking on properties and stuff but I can't figure it out. Thank you!xx

    right click > properties.. if type of file says MP3 sound file, youve answered your own question

    also see if the file extension is an mp3 too, scroll across in the filename box at the top and see if the file ends with .mp3

    apparently it's not an mp3, its a RealPlayer Presentation, which I guess means I'm out of luck. Thanks though!

    You do know you can convert files right?

    Alternatively, buy a media player with better file support.

    I had an inkling you could, do you have to get some kind of software or something?
