Did as you suggested and got the following errors
(I've already sent a word doc of the output but its
waiting moderator approval as the mail size is over
40K.

Error is

Negative length at /PerlApp/Audio/WMA.pm line 104.

I have a directory with a couple of wma files in them.
I'll remove the directory, only leaving mp3 files,
and try again.

Will let you know.

Thanks

James
