    I edited a song and saved it as an .mp3 then emailed it to myself as a quick way to get it on my phone. But when I click on the file in gmail I get a warning from Astro saying, "No activity for this file exists." When I tap "Browse" it downloads and I can see the song there, but it just won't play. I can play other .mp3s (ringtones) but not this one. Running Ultimate Droid v8.6.3 or whatever the latest is. Anyone know what's going on?
    Also, what the hell is up with Astro saying "Beta version expires in X days?" Never got that before and I've had it for months. Is it going to be pay for? If so, goodbye Astro, hello eStrongs.

    Try accessing your gmail account via the browser (not the app) and try downloading the file. It will be saved in sdcard/download. You should be able to play it from there.

    Yup...tried that. Same thing pretty much. It just opened the directory in Astro where the .mp3 was saved but when I tap the song Astro gives me the same warning:
    ASTRO Downloader
    No activity is available to display this file type.
    [Display Directory] [Cancel]

    If I then tap on Display Directory it just says "File type not found" and ASTRO goes blank (as if I were looking in an empty folder...the ASTRO menu is still at the top).

    WTF?
