    Repair corrupt MP3 files?

    I have one track that stops playing at the same spot every time I try to listen to it. Anyone have any success with any of the repair tools out there? I've stuffed all my CD's in boxes without logical order, so digging out the track would be painful - would probably repurchase the track first.

    TIA,
    Jeff

    Repairing MP3-files is nigh on impossible. Easier to just re-rip or, as you're not able to find the original CD quickly, re-buy ...

    Thanks!

    Thanks bakker_be & Mnyb, will take a quick look through the boxes, and spend the $.99 to replace if needed.

    Slippery slope

    Thanks for the thought, but probably not a trend we should start, risky for donor, recepient and artist.
