seems there are corrupt mp3 frames inside.

this is no wonder - when opening with cool edit the mp3 is converted to a
wav - when you save it again, it is re-encoded to an mp3 with the cool-edit
"builtin!?" mp3 codec - and this gives a different file (this time without
errors). Keep in mind, that this means loss of quality!
