    are you sure you are actually seeing the extension? Windows Explorer usually hides them by default. in explorer, go Tools>Folder Options. Click on the View tab. Then make sure the "Hide extensions for known types" is unchecked. Click OK, then refresh the window. Now the real extension should be there, and you can delete it and rename it .mp3
