Attempting to open file shared through dropbox


I have a question regarding opening a file in audacity that was shared with me on dropbox. The sender shared both the audacity file (.aup) and zip file with me in dropbox and I am receiving the error message "audacity did not recognize the type of file…if it is uncompressed, try importing it using “import raw,” when i attempt to open the file in audacity. I did import the file raw, but it just plays white noise. I’m wondering if this is something wrong with the recording itself or if I should be opening the file a different way. If anyone has any answers or can link to a forum thread that might be helpful, I would appreciate it!

Unzip the ZIP file into the _DATA folder and its contents. Put the _DATA folder and the AUP file in the same place or folder and double click on the AUP file.
