mp3 file is shortened to half a second

when i drag my file or import it, it is compressed into half a second, when its actually 2:40. Anyone know the solution? Thank you.

Does the file play super-fast? If so, then it’s not an MP3 file, it’s some other format and probably incorrectly named with “.mp3” at the end.

You can check the actual file format by “uploading” to this page:
(it doesn’t actually “upload” the file. The page uses javascript to analyze the file)
