Mp3 file truncates when opened

I have a large mp3 (15MB). When open it in Audacity, only about a quarter of it gets loaded (the rest is truncated).

Any ideas?

Forget the size. How long is the show?


Is this a 48 hour surveillance track?


Not sure what you mean. It’s a 45 minute music track.

That’s what I mean. How many minutes survive?


Please upload the file to dropbox or then give us the web address to download it.

But most likely the file has corrupt length indications.


Sorry for the delay; away on holiday. I’ve discovered that the error lies with me, not the software! The file I’m working on had somewhere got truncated BEFORE I tried to open it in Audacity.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
