At first everything seemed in order, but upon closer inspection I have found that your webserver is somehow misconfigured, and returning the incorrect MIME type for that .mp3 file. The webserver should have returned the MIME type audio/mpeg when your .mp3 file is requested. However, your server is saying that the MIME type for the .mp3 file is audio/x-ms-wax (never heard of that one before). Most programs won't really care, and download and play the file anyway. However, the iTunes store is pretty picky about servers using correct MIME types, and won't retrieve your file.
Unfortunatley I'm probably not going to be able to be much more help than that. It looks like you are running a Microsoft webserver, and I'm just not much of an expert on them. Hopefully you have some IT guys that will know exactly how to make the fix for you (or you are a computer wizz yourself).
Yes, it does help, at least now I know were to (sortof) look. One quick question, how can you tell what my webserver is sending out? I'm new to this webiste stuff. Yes, I am running IIS 6.0 and according to the MIME types, MP3 is suppose to use audio/mpeg, looks like .wax is what is set for audio/x-ms-wax, which I THINK is a Windows Media streaming file...
I had put in "audio/mp3" for my mp3 file, and when I validated it with the new Beta, it returned an error message "enclosure "type" "audio/mp3" is not a standard MIME type". The solution was simple: I went to the Control Panel of my server and looked up a list of MIME extensions that were right for mp3 file, and used that, and it worked right away. Error message went away.
