My daughter downloaded a .MP3 file from Amazon a few weeks ago. Now, for some reason, she can't play it in any media player we've got. I've even tried VLC, and it stops cold.

Any error message displayed? – slubman May 6 '11 at 4:32
Is the file complete? It may be corrupt. The same problem affected another user who asked a similar question on this site. – user3463 May 6 '11 at 4:48

Maybe the resource is invalid. You can change another one to get downloaded and try again. If it's still can't be played. Then, it'a about the compatibility.

I think the issue turned out to be about compatibility. – Rod Sep 26 '14 at 20:58
