thanks for your reply iain,
i know about the right-click details,but they only show kbps,which i'm not sure i know what that is?(each file seems to be different?)
what i would find more useful is the bit rate: 8/16/24 or 32bit,also the sample rate 44100k/48000k etc.
most wave players/samplers will only play certain files eg: 16 or 24 bit,some may support 32 or more,but it would be useful to be able to check without loading into a wave editor first.
also some music apps only operate at 44100k so will play files of 48000 or larger incorrectly,again,the only way to find out is load them into a wave editor.
a few years ago i had an app which allowed rick-click but i can't remember what it is.
