I have downloaded 2 sample files from beatport and cannot get them to play?

I have checked with beatport customer support, and they confirm they are wav files and should play in ableton, I have ableton 8 live Launchpad edition which I downloaded after purchasing a Launchpad s.  I have tried dragging and dropping them into an audio slot, and through a live set browser, Ableton gives me the same "error" message each time.   "This file does not appear to be a valid wav file"  it also includes the address of the file. Could I ask do I need to do something specifc before I can play these? something as a novice I haven't doen or should they just play? is it my version? Any and all help will be appreciated, thanks     Rick

    They should play. But you can try to open these files in an audio editor to see if that works. If so, try saving it under a different name and try to open it in Live again.
