This seems to be an old issue yet I find it hard to believe that everyone has this problem all the time or the feature would be excluded completely. There are some threads pointing to firewall issues. Does anyone really know why LR responds with "File selected is not a valid music file." even though manual states mp3 files are accepted??

My trial is almost over and this is a gating issue for me.

DRM is the most likely suspect

I don't think so, because the same files can be imported into Photoshop Elements (and Magix). Unless there is a "Special" import option that i don't know.
